Britain's Lady Louise Windsor has had corrective eye surgery after suffering from a condition known as exotropia since birth.

Britain's Lady Louise Windsor has had corrective eye surgery.

Queen Elizabeth's ten-year-old granddaughter needed an operation to correct a severe squint after suffering from exotropia - a condition which means both eyes do not look in the same direction.

Details of the surgery or whether it was carried out on the NHS or privately have not been released, but in most cases a paediatric ophthalmologist would move the position of the muscles on the eye in order to make it easier to control.

Exotropia can cause serious vision problems if left untreated and Louise has suffered with the condition since birth.

She is understood to have had corrective surgery on the advice of doctors - and her transformation during a recent visit to Ascot showed it had been a success.

It could also be seen as she accompanied the royal family to church at Sandringham on Christmas Day.

The young royal, who is tenth in line to the throne, is the daughter of Prince Edward and his wife, the Countess of Wessex, who had an ectopic pregnancy two years before she was conceived.

Louise was born via emergency caesarean four weeks prematurely and her mother Sophie lost nine pints of blood through internal bleeding and was said to be just minutes from death.
