Lady Louise Windsor to inherit Prince Philip's carriage and horses

Lady Louise Windsor will reportedly inherit Prince Philip's carriage and horses.

The 17-year-old royal - who is the daughter of Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex - was taught carriage driving by her late grandfather and shared his passion for the sport.

Sources told the Daily Mail newspaper that Louise will inherit the dark green aluminium and steel carriage, which was made to the Duke of Edinburgh's specifications eight years ago, and will continue to put his two ponies, Balmoral Nevis and Notlaw Storm, through their paces at Windsor Castle.

The two fell ponies were seen at Philip's funeral on Saturday, pulling his carriage on which lay his driving cap, gloves, blanket and even the red-lidded plastic tub he kept their sugar lump rewards in.

The Duke, who died earlier this month aged 99, took up carriage driving in 1971 after arthritis in his wrist put paid to his polo-playing days.

He is credited with shaping the sport in the UK and represented Britain ins six world championships and three European championships, still competing professionally into his 80s.
