It is an honest question imo. I do not see any harm in doing it, at the moment.

Honestly, the monarchy is lacking young royals to carry the workload, and people wonder if Louise could be an asset.

If she is anything like her parents, she would be a lovely asset to the BRF.

Poor Louise ... she steps out for a church service and journalists suddenly take notice of her.
 
It seems to me that Edward & Sophie have pretty firmly established that their children won't be part of the working RF by giving them non-royal titles and keeping them out of the limelight.   Articles by newspapers speculating about their future roles is ... speculation to sell papers/get clicks.

Just like with Beatrice and Eugenie I see no reason why Louise or James shouldn't carry out engagements.

If they want...though like in Sweden they should be paid by engagement. This way they could still lead a normal life and support causes they may find interesting.

Nothing screams charity quite like demanding to be paid for it.
Seriously, why is there such a huge discussion on whether she could become a full-time aka paid royal vs. having a job to provide for herself (as the grandaughter of QEII I sincerely doubt she will ever have to start entry-level boring office stuff) and do charity just as many people do in their spare time?
Louise and all the other grandkids and great grandkids are so incredibly privileged, giving back to society without demanding a pay check for it should not be an issue.

IMO it’s one thing to give a small allowance to off set the cost of attending something like a state banquet and another to say you’ll get this amount per charity whatever.  They’re more than welcome to support as many charities as they want but on their own time and without expectation of reward...possibly save for mention in the CC.

Of course this would be even better.

Yeah, the idea of being paid for an appearance doesn't sit well with me. That's borderline celebrity, and we know the BRF is very much against that mentality.

Yep, right there with you Sophie. Losing hormones is just as hard as getting them in the first place.

Amen to that. Even when the hormones are just gone, vaek, it's still hard. LOVE Sophie. I hope she can visit with the queen soon.
