The Queen has provided a rare insight into life behind the palace gates with her great-grandchildren – and it might come as something of a surprise. In fact, while the public may imagine that the little princes and princesses live lives entirely unlike those of other children, this isn’t quite true. The Queen, you see, has revealed that the young royals can be just as mischievous as any other tiny tykes.
Queen Elizabeth II, 92, is the proud great-grandmother of seven children. Her grandson Peter Phillips has two daughters with his wife Autumn. His sister Zara Tindall, meanwhile, is mother to Mia, four, and Lena, born in June 2018. It is Prince William and Kate Middleton’s brood of three, though, who command the most public attention. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their son Prince George in 2013, and daughter Princess Charlotte arrived in 2015. And the family’s newest addition, Prince Louis, came into the world in April 2018.
Of course, the royal family tree could also soon develop another branch if newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have their own children. The smitten pair haven’t yet revealed plans, but there is speculation that the stork may be making a delivery sometime in the future.
