The connection between grandparents and grandchildren is special. People say you spoil your grandkids much more than your own children. Queen Elizabeth is no exception from this rule.
She is not only a fierce monarch but a loving great-granny for Prince Charles, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
On the preview to the documentary Our Queen At Ninety, filmed for the Queen’s 90-s birthday, Duchess of Cambridge Catherine was giving an interview, revealing some interesting details about Elizabeth II.
“The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl”, said Catherine describing great-granny’s emotions after Princess Charlotte was born. She opened that the Queen had been one of the first to visit the newly extended family in the Kensington Palace.
When Prince Louis was born on April 23 and the family headed to the Anmer Hall, their country house, the Queen got the foot of everyone else!
She got to Anmer Hall by her helicopter with a sweet bouquet of flowers to visit the new great-grandson!
In the same interview, Catherine told the sweet nickname little Prince George had for the Queen when he was two and a half. He called her Gan-Gan.
Catherine revealed, that the Queen is the most affectionate Gan-Gan: “She always leaves a little gift or something in their room when we go and stay, and that just shows her love for her family.”
Prince Charles said, he likes to be called “grandpa” and not a “granddad”, and Camilla joked that maybe she will be GaGa for little Cambridge children because this is how her own 5 grandkids call her.
According to Daily Mail, little Prince William came up with an unusual nickname for Her Majesty. He could not handle “granny”, so he simplified to “Gary”.
Apparently, the royal family is just as normal as every family is, and they have the sweetest names for each other behind the closed door of the Buckingham Palace.
