From Town & Country

Queen Elizabeth's elder grandchildren (think Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie) are seemingly always in the public eye. But some of the Queen's younger grandchildren—namely Prince Edward's kids, 16-year-old Lady Louise Windsor and 12-year-old James Viscount Severn—have enjoyed a childhood largely out of the spotlight. This makes it that much more exciting for royal watchers when Louise or James do step out publicly.

That's what happened on Tuesday, when Lady Louise Windsor made a surprise appearance alongside her mom, Sophie, Countess of Wessex. The Countess was paying a visit to England Hockey's training fields at the National Sports Centre at Bisham Abbey, and brought Louise, a known England Hockey fan, along for the fun. Sophie watched from the sidelines as Louise got into it, playing a little field hockey herself.

Sophie is patron of England Hockey, and reportedly a fan of the sport. She seems to have passed her interest down to Louise, who was previously seen attending the 2018 Hockey Women's World Cup in London.

That's not the only thing this mother-daughter duo have in common—they also appear to share a sense of style. Now that the 16-year-old is grown enough to fit into her mom's clothes, she's been seen shopping in her closet.

On Christmas Day, Louise was seen walking to services at Sandringham estate's St Mary Magdalene, wearing what was believed to be Sophie's checked Stella McCartney coat. A few days later, the teenage royal was seen making the same walk to St Mary Magdalene—this time wearing her mother's navy Stella McCartney coat.
