Prince Edward

The Queen”s granddaughter Lady Louise is recovering at home after breaking her arm in a riding accident.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex”s daughter fell from her horse on Thursday morning while she was riding in the grounds of Windsor Castle.


Eight-year-old Louise, who was seen last week accompanying her grandmother to an Easter service, now has her left arm in a cast.

She is being looked after at the family home in Bagshot Park by her mother Sophie, who cancelled a scheduled visit to a cancer hospital to be with her daughter.

Edward went ahead with the engagement, visiting the Christie in Withington, after learning his daughter hadn”t been seriously injured.

A Buckingham Palace representative said on Thursday: “Lady Louise broke her left arm after falling from her pony while riding at Windsor this morning.

“She has been treated by doctors and is now resting at home.

“The Countess of Wessex was supposed to go to Manchester today with the Earl but understandably stayed with her daughter.”
