Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's granddaughter Lady Louise, 18 rode a carriage as a tribute to her late grandfather Prince Philip. This was at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebration that happened on the private grounds of the Windsor Castle. 

It is believed that the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, Lady Louise inherited her interest in carriage driving from the Duke of Edinburgh, who was actively involved in helping it become a sport in Britain.  

She gracefully and poignantly rode her grandfather's carriage as she led a horse parade by the Royal Windsor Horse Show. 

In a video capturing this performance, there were quick camera shots of the Queen who looked emotional during this special tribute. 

"All our respects to a great man, His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. His love for carriage driving has passed to his granddaughter Lady Louise, who's driving His Royal Highness's exercise carriage tonight" the announcer said.
