The Queen's granddaughter Lady Louise is set to return to mark a big milestone this month, as she returns to education to begin her A-levels.

Her mother Sophie gave an insight into the royal's education plans earlier this year in a rare interview with The Sunday Times, in which she said, 'She’s working hard and will do A-levels. I hope she goes to university. I wouldn't force her, but if she wants to. She's quite clever.'
