Queen's great-grandchildren set to have role in Platinum Jubilee

A tribute to Gan-Gan! Ten of the Queen’s great-grandchildren are set to ‘ride in a horse-drawn carriage’ at finale of Royal Windsor Horse Show to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee

  • Ten of twelve great-grandchildren taking part in special event in Windsor
  • Will reportedly ride in horse-drawn carriage on May 15 for the celebrations
  • Said to include Prince George, Charlotte and Louis and the Tindall’s 
  • Appearance comes after last big family outing to church on Easter Sunday 

The Queen’s great-grandchildren are set to ride in a horse-drawn carriage as part of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations – in a rare public appearance together.

According to royal editor Roya Nikkhah, writing in The Sunday Times, all of Her Majesty’s UK-based great-grandchildren will take part in the special event at the final performance of ‘Gallop Through History’ during the Royal Windsor Horse Show, on 15th May.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Savannah and Isla Phillips, Princess Eugenie’s son August Brooksbank, Princess Beatrice’s daughter Sienna Mapelli Mozzi, and Zara Tindall’s children Lena, Lucas and Mia Tindall will take part. 

It comes after undated footage of George, Charlotte and Louis climbing into a horse-drawn carriage at Windsor Castle while their mother watched on was shared on social media last month, which could have been a practice run for the event. 

Prince Harry and Meghan’s children Archie and Lilibet will not feature in the show, but it was confirmed last week that the couple will join the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June with their young son and daughter.

The news comes after undated footage of some of the young royals getting into a horse-drawn carriage, pictured, was shared last month 

‘Gallop Through History’ will bring together 500 horses and more than 1,000 performers over four nights to tell the story of Queen Elizabeth I’s monarchy. 

Elsewhere, the Queen’s ‘favourite’ grandchild, Lady Louise Windsor, 18, is said to be paying tribute to Prince Philip at the same performance, reportedly preparing to drive his carriage at the horse show.

Prince Philip had taken up carriage driving in the 1970s and taught the sport to his granddaughter. 

The report comes weeks after the Queen’s great grandchildren were spotted in a carriage at Windsor Castle alongside their parents.

It is reported that Savannah and Isla Phillips, pictured, will also ride in the horse-drawn carriage at Windsor for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations on May 15 

 Princess Eugenie, 32, appeared to be nearby, holding the hand of her son August, one, while he took some toddling steps on the gravel.  

The clip also appeared to show other members of the royal family including Zara and Mike Tindall. It was unclear if their children, Mia, eight, Lena, three, and Lucas, one, were in attendance. 

In the undated footage, it is not clear which of the Queen’s other 12 great-grandchildren were present, or whether the Duke of Cambridge was there. 

In the front row of the carriage appeared to be two blonde haired children, who could be the Queen’s eldest great-grandchildren Savannah and Isla Philips. 

Meanwhile Zara and Mike appeared to hold a baby between them as they watched the carriage of children.

The Royal Horse Show May 15 event featuring the young royals will be a gala performance including Helen Mirren and Stephen Fry which will be broadcast live on television. 

The celebrations at Windsor to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will take place from 12-15 May in the grounds of the castle, where her Majesty is living.   

The Royal Horse Show begins on Thursday and the May 15 event will be a gala performance including Helen Mirren, pictured and Stephen Fry which will be broadcast live on television
