Earlier this month, it was reported the Queen’s youngest granddaughter Lady Louise Windsor had started working at a garden centre. The 18-year-old had reportedly started at the job whilst waiting for her A-Level resuts, which were revealed last week. According to royal correspondent Richard Palmer, following the news of Lady Louise’s job being revealed, the Royal Family felt a sense of “irritation” that the news had been made public.

Speaking to the Daily Express’ Royal Round’s host Pandora Forsyth, Mr Palmer said: “I don’t think it was a major issue, a major controversy, but I think there was a slight irritation that, you know, why are the media writing about this.”

He added: “I think it showed her in a good light.

“I think the coverage was really quite positive.”

He continued: “Anything really that give young members of the Royal Family some experience of life, meeting ordinary people who aren’t going to fee-paying schools, it’s all the best for them.”

Speaking on the controversial comments on how much Lady Louise was earning, Mr Palmer added “we don’t really know for sure”, but added it seemed “likely, let’s say she was earning the minimum wage for an 18-year-old, which £6.83 per-hour.”

Despite the Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward and his family being relatively private, Mr Palmer noted Lady Louise “has appeared in public at official engagements on the balcony, and at the Jubilee”.

Following the annoucement of receiving her A-Level results, it was revealed that the 18-year-old will be attending St Andrew’s University in Scotland.

The only daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex is set to study English.

Following the announcement, Richard Palmer wrote on Twitter: “The Earl and Countess of Wessex’s daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, is to read English at St Andrews University after getting her A-Levels today.”

St Andrews is a significant institution for the Royal Family.

It is the university Prince William attended, and the one where he met Kate Middleton.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge graduated in 2005.
