Having been a doting grandmother to her eight grandchildren, Queen Elizabeth’s love for her ever expanding family hasn’t gone unnoticed. Prince William once explained how “having this figurehead, having this stability above me, has been incredible,” while Prince Harry has expressed an overwhelming amount of pride for what the Queen has achieved both as a grandmother and a monarch.

And the love Queen Elizabeth’s grandchildren share for her has definitely been passed on to the next generation. There’s certainly never a dull moment when it comes to her great-grandchildren, especially since the monarch welcomed three new members to her ever-growing family in 2021. As one royal expert noted to the Express, the Queen “has often looked at her happiest when surrounded by her great-grandchildren,” whether that’s posing for official photographs or attending royal events with them.

While some of her great-grandchildren have been in the spotlight more than others – especially Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis – they are all beginning to find their place in the royal family under the watchful eye of their great-grandmother. Some may be growing up outside of the royal bubble (most notably, Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor) but it’s clear that all hold a special place in the monarch’s heart.

With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about Queen Elizabeth’s great-grandchildren.

Trivia: Mia captured the nations hearts when the official portrait for the Queen’s 90th birthday was released. In it, she can be seen holding her great-grandmother’s handbag. Mike Tindall said his daughter was being “a bit naughty” while the photo was being taken, so the Queen told Mia to hold the handbag as a distraction. “It just turned out to be the right photo at the right time and it will be something we’ll always cherish, I think,” Tindall told Good Morning Britain.

It seems as though Mia is particularly fond Charlotte, when she was spotted waving at her younger cousin during a memorial service for their great-grandfather in March 2022.

While he doesn’t have any royal titles, he is seventh in line to the throne. Archie has a “cheeky” personality according to Harry. “I always try and keep that,” he told broadcaster Hoda Kotb. “I think that the cheekiness is something that keeps you alive.”

As for what Archie wants to be when he’s older, Harry has said that “some days it’s an astronaut. Other days it’s a pilot. A helicopter pilot, obviously.” He went on to say that he reminds his son “that no matter what you want to be when you grow up, it’s your character that matters most.”
