Like any family, the British royals are constantly expanding. So you might be asking yourself, just how many great-grandchildren does Queen Elizabeth have? Nowadays, the royal monarch is the proud mom of four, doting grandmother of eight and a great-grandmother of eight cute kids.
The beloved queen began her family when she tied the knot with her longtime husband, Prince Philip, in 1947. Together, Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh became the loving mom and dad of their four kids, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew.
As the queen’s children grew up, they went on to create families of their own. Charles shares his two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, with late ex-wife Princess Diana, while Anne is the mom of Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips with ex-husband Mark Phillips. As for Edward, he shares Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn with spouse Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Andrew is the father of daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie with former wife Sarah Ferguson.
Thanks to her grandchildrens’ marriages, the queen is the dedicated great-grandma of kiddos Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Mia Tindall, Lena Tindall and Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Elizabeth shares a sweet bond with each of her great-grandchildren, but the iconic royal has a feeling William and wife Duchess Kate‘s (née Middleton) daughter will be the one following in her incredible footsteps.
“The queen has already picked up on signs that Charlotte is her mini-me,” an insider exclusively revealed to Closer Weekly in 2019. “She’s confident that her great-granddaughter will grow up to be a great leader and role model.”
The former princess also thinks Harry has “the most adorable child,” another source told Closer in April 2020. After video-chatting with the Duke of Sussex, his wife, Meghan Markle, and their little one for her birthday at the time, Elizabeth was over the moon about watching Archie grow up.
“Seeing Archie reminded the queen of when Harry was a baby because they look so alike, although she can see Meghan in him too!” the insider explained. “She can’t believe how much he’s grown and changed.”
The youngest generation of royals have come a long way!
