Queen Elizabeth II may be a busy head of state, but she’s also a mother and a grandmother. And it seems that even when the cameras are on her – which they often are – she’s not fussed about scolding one of her family members. After all, who’s going to tell her not to? Perhaps surprisingly, though, Prince William, second in line to the British throne and a parent himself, is seemingly one of the people who’s been at the receiving end of a telling-off from her.
Prince William is naturally very close to Queen Elizabeth. In 2016 he spoke to the BBC and described her as “the best role model I could have.” Royal historians have also observed the development of their relationship. “There has always been a special closeness between William and the Queen, and she has taken a particular interest in him,” historian Robert Lacey told People in 2017.
