Queen Elizabeth deals with a lot of stuff on a regular basis. You’d think that a Queen, especially at her age, would be living the retired life. Nope. This woman has a number of things to do, a number of Queenly duties if you will.
She must have a number of things on her to-do list-appointments, meetings, appearances, and so on, but there is one thing that she has to do that many of us can relate to. That is, being a grandmother and a great-grandmother.
Believe it or not, Queen Elizabeth is a very present great-grandmother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Recently the Queen has admitted that when those two adorable kids come to visit, she has to keep a close eye on them.
The Queen sat down with the renowned broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, where she discussed various things, including some details about her great-grandchildren. It gave us regular folks an understanding of the royal children.
First of all, it shows us that just because you are of royal lineage, does not mean that you stop acting like a youth. That means acting mischievously every once in a while. Okay, maybe much more than once in a while.
As she was speaking to Attenborough, the Queen got to talk about George and Charlotte’s behaviour, specifically during Christmas time festivities. So you are wondering what exactly they did? Well, for one thing, they destroyed the Christmas tree!
The Queen cheerfully said, in the interview broadcast by ITV: “Yes, that is always the problem. The children love knocking those decorations off. Well, my great-grandchildren do, anyway they enjoy themselves”.
Even though these two adorable kids cause some trouble, as children tend to do, she absolutely adores them and is happy that they have a good time. Princess Charlotte is now 3 years old now and Prince George is 5 years old.
Just seeing how the Queen speaks of her great-grandchildren makes us able to relate to her just a little bit more. It also allows parents who have young children to relate to Will and Kate. It’s hard to tame these kids sometimes, especially around bright shiny trees with massive Christmas ornaments.
However, after discussing George and Charlotte, the Queen came up with an easy solution to the problem. She told Attenborough, “The great thing is to make them decorate it, and they’ll be a bit more careful.” That’s a pretty easy solution if you ask me. I mean everyone wins that battle at the end of the day.
This whole interview about the children just shows that the Queen has her fair share of experience, being not only a mother but a grandmother and a great-grandmother. She really is a superwoman with all the things she tackles on a regular basis.
