Sophie, Countess of Wessex, has two children with her husband Prince Edward and their eldest, Lady Louise, is now in her first year of A-Levels. The 17-year-old was due to sit her AS exams this summer, but due to Covid, teacher-assessed grades have replaced tests in 2021. However, the pressure is still on for the young royal, who will receive her results on August 10.
The UK Government has said that schools and colleges in England must submit teacher-assessed grades for GCSE, AS and A-Levels by June 18.
Lady Louise attends St Mary’s School in Ascot, nearby the family’s home in Bagshot Park.
Last September the teenager revealed she is studying English, History, Politics and Drama.
It is not the first time Covid has affected Lady Louise’s exams, as she was due to sit her GCSEs last summer.
As with all pupils affected by the pandemic, the Queen’s granddaughter still received her grades – which were made based on a teacher’s predicted grade or algorithm standardised result.
It is not known what grades Lady Louis received as Buckingham Palace said they were a private matter.
As a result, it is unlikely The Palace will release the royal’s A-Level results.
Lady Louise turned 17 last November and is currently the Queen’s youngest granddaughter.
The teenager is currently 14th in line to the throne, behind her younger brother James, Viscount Severn, aged 13.

Lady Louise was unable to benefit from the changes made in The Succession to the Crown Act (2013), which ended the system of male primogeniture whereby younger sons have precedence over their older sisters.
The change in law applied to those born after October 28, 2011, and enabled Princess Charlotte, five, to become fourth in line to the throne, ahead of her younger brother Prince Louis.
Prior to the change in law, Louis would have overtaken his older sister in the line of succession.
But as Lady Louise was born in 2003, she was unable to benefit from the change in law.

Lady Louise’s lineage is due to change in the coming weeks, as Meghan Markle is pregnant with her second child.
The Duchess of Sussex, married to Prince Harry, is due to give birth to a girl.
The baby will be eighth in line to the throne, behind their older brother, Archie.
The birth of the child will push Lady Louise down 15th in line to the throne.
James will move to 14th in line to the throne and their father, the Earl of Wessex, will move down to thirteenth.
The Queen’s youngest son lies ahead of his older sister, Princess Anne, even though he is 14 years younger.
The Princess Royal was also unaffected by the 2013 Act and is currently 15th in line to the throne.
