Lady Louise is undoubtedly one of our favourite young royals.

The 14-year-old, who is the eldest daughter of Prince Edward and Countess Sophie of Wessex, first charmed us as the smiling little princess who was in Catherine's bridal party during her 2011 wedding to Prince William.

Cut forward 7 years, and the we've seen the Queen's granddaughter completely blossom.

Lady Louise Windsor decided to join her mum for a very exciting royal outing.

The duo sailed a yacht with young girls who are studying to get qualified for the Royal Yachting Association.
