Inside Queen Elizabeth II’s relationship with her grandchildren

Queen Elizabeth II She was a king and a mother, but her list of titles did not stop there.

For a lucky group, she was affectionately known as Grandma. A grandmother of eight and great-grandmother of 12 others, Queen Elizabeth II’s legacy extends far beyond the four children she welcomed with her late husband. Prince Philip: Prince CharlesAnd the Princess AnneAnd the Prince Andrew And the Prince Edward. As the world mourns the death of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who passed away on September 8 at the age of 96 after 70 years on the throne, the bond she shares with future generations of her family has not gone unnoticed.

The flowing phrases of greeting echo the many comments her grandchildren have publicly shared about her over the years, including the future king Prince Williamwho previously praised her courage to take on the role of a lifetime nearly seven decades ago.

“At the time, a woman in a man’s world was stepping into what everyone thinks…only a man can do. I think she really carved her own path in that sense and produced an incredible amount of courage to do the job and rise to the plate,” William said Katie Couric in 2012. “She doesn’t give up on herself or anyone in the process. There’s such scrutiny on the job that I think you have to be very careful how you go your way, but she did it brilliantly.”
