She added camel riding gloves and a floral tie pinned to her jacket with a yellow flower.

It’s the second time she’s driven a carriage this week, the first to be watched by her proud parents.

Lady Louise appears to be a natural person, that one love for carriage riding with the late Duke of Edinburghwho was instrumental in helping to establish the sport in Britain.
Earlier this week, she was watched by her parents as she took part in her first carriage event.
Her mother, Sophie, then presented herself rosettes to participants in the costume contest at the Copper Horse arena.
The popular royal, 58, wore a black and white floral dress and black leather boots at Windsor Castle for the occasion. And she added a pair of chunky boots to keep her warm.
Until recently, Lady Louise was largely shielded from the public eye by her parents Edward and Sophie, Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh.

But she is dear to the royal family and had a special relationship with her late grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

Sophie and Louise’s appearance at the Royal Horse Show comes just days after a pedestrian was hit by an outrider in the Duchess’ motorcade, leaving her in a coma.
The police motorcycle collided with the elderly woman in Earl’s Court on Wednesday.
Paramedics from the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance rushed to the scene before the woman, in her 80s, was taken to hospital.
Buckingham Palace said after the incident that the Duchess of Edinburgh’s “thoughts and prayers are with the injured lady and her family”, adding she was grateful for the “prompt response” of emergency services.
