What Is It Like To Be The Queen GrandMother?
We are always intrigued by the royals and their very private lives. They are celebrities, too, but unlike our favorite movie stars, they don’t like to flaunt their private lives all the time which makes us more curious about them. How exactly are they in real lives? Do they behave like us? Do they chill out like us, watching a movie with a bucket of popcorn? Do the kids love to hear stories from their grandmother? And that brings us to the Queen who just welcomed the newest addition to the family. She must be delighted since rumor has it that Prince Harry is her favorite grandchild.
But honestly, it is not easy to decipher that from their behavior in public. The decorum was set by the Queen herself, who has been a grandmother for 40 years now. Eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren have made her and Prince Philip immensely happy. But is she like other grannies? Baking cookies, telling stories, and knitting sweaters may not her thing! She has a country to run after all. However, it didn’t go unnoticed how protective she was of her grandchildren when they heard the news of their mother’s death. She not only let the boys mourn in private but also ensured that they were cut off from the media so that all the details about the crash and the news relating to it wouldn’t reach them. When she made a speech afterward, she said she spoke as a monarch and a grandmother, too.
We hear she loves to stay in the country and have some quality family time. Princess Eugenie says, “I think Granny is the most happy there, I think she really, really loves the Highlands… Walks, picnics, dogs—a lot of dogs, there’s always dogs!—and people coming in and out all the time. Family-wise we’re all there, so it’s a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa to be—for us to come and see them up there, where you just have room to breathe and run.”
