Lady Louise joined the extended Royal Family for the Easter matins service at Windsor yesterday, which also happened to be The Queen’s 93rd birthday. We love these family events to see Louise and her fashion choices as she becomes a young woman.
Lady Louise wore a dress from Reiss, the ‘Allie’ floral burnout dress, which sold for £235. It is currently on sale, in extremely limited sizing for £115 here.
The navy round-neck dress features grey, white, and khaki applique flowers across the piece, with sheer blouson sleeves ending in cuffs. The interesting detail comes in the skirt, which begins to pleat from the waist (although there is no waistband), with more further down, adding a wonderful ‘swish’ to the piece. It is made from a viscose, nylon, and silk blend, and fastens with a zip to the back.
Louise, 15, chose a navy satin cocktail hat, which does bear some resemblance to Rachel Trevor Morgan designs. It features a small round base, with loops of satin, velvet and sequins. A perfectly petite piece to add to the wardrobe as it expands.
However, we think it more likely that Sophie will have helped Louise by ordering a piece from Jane Taylor, although this style doesn’t really fit in with the milliner’s work.
Update: @polkapopp has mentioned that Louise wore a similar style navy piece for Princess Eugenie’s wedding. We show two silk satin and loop based pieces from the same label, Emily London, currently for sale, featuring the velvet and glitter elements seen on Louise’s hat.

Louise chose to wear semi-opaque black tights, and a pair of black ‘Clemence’ suede block heel pumps from LK Bennett, that we have seen previously in pink. With a metal plaque at the squared toe, these 2-inch pumps are a great way at first getting height into your shoes before moving to thinner and taller heels. These are past season and no longer available.
The Queen’s granddaughter didn’t carry a bag, but wore a gold disc pendant, as well as a turquoise stone bracelet.
