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 10 cute kids.
The beloved queen began her family when she tied the knot with her late husband, Prince Philip, in 1947. Together, Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh — who died at age 99 in April 2021 — 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 grandchildren’s marriages, the queen is the dedicated great-grandma of Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Mia Tindall, Lena Tindall and Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The newest additions are August Philip Hawke Brooksbank and Lucas Philip Tindall, both of whom were born in 2021.
Her Majesty shares a sweet bond with each of her great-grandchildren, but the iconic royal has a feeling William and wife Duchess Kate Middleton‘s 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. “Archie [reminds] 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.”
Elizabeth is gearing up to welcome her 11th grandchild considering Harry and wife Meghan Markle are expecting their second little one. The couple, who stepped back from the royal family in January 2020, announced their pregnancy with baby No. 2 in February 2021.
