Queen Elizabeth II shared ‘groundbreaking’ moment with one great-grandchild

To most of the world she was Queen Elizabeth II, but to a very select few she was great-granny.

The late Queen’s great-grandkids were Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Prince George, Mia Tindall, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Lena Tindall, Prince Archie Harrison, August Brooksbank, Lucas Philip Tindall, Princess Lilibet Diana, and Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.

When the Queen was alive, body language expert Judi James spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about the monarch’s relationship with all 12, but claimed she had a “profound investment” in one of them.

She commented: “The Queen has often looked at her happiest when surrounded by her great-grandchildren and even in more formal poses she appears relaxed and quietly playful.

“Her bonds with all of them appear typically doting although we have been shown some moments that look especially intimate.”

Queen Elizabeth II was a doting mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, but she had an extremely unique connection to Charles, William and George due to their shared destiny.

Judi opined: “Like her relationship with Charles and William, there is always the sense of something very special in the Queen’s bonding with George that is based on empathy and destiny.

“The Queen knows more than anyone what is in store for her heirs and her bonds with George, who featured in that all-important photo with his father, grandfather and great-grandmother to define the line of accession, already show signs of a shared sense of duty alongside the more usual signals of a very loving great-granny.”

She claimed that the Queen may have felt an extra connection to Prince George because he was an important link to her father.

Judi added: “George also has the same name as her beloved father and, unless there is a name change as he takes to the throne, he will be George VII, suggesting historic links to and reminders of the man who was King George before him, making HM’s emotional investment in her great grandson even more profound.”

The Queen was also besotted with her other 11 great-grandchildren. Judi pointed out a particularly sweet moment between the monarch and Prince Archie.

She observed: “One of her unashamedly doting moments as a besotted great-granny was shown in her pose with Harry and Meghan’s son Archie soon after his birth.

“As Meghan raised the baby’s head a little and pushed the wrap back the Queen is seen moving in carefully to peep at his face.

“As she does so her smile suggests utter delight and the emotion is echoed in a broad grin on the face of her husband standing behind her.”

Princess Charlotte was also very close to her great-granny. According to the expert, they shared more than just a physical likeness.

Judi claimed: “Charlotte’s facial resemblance to the Queen as a young girl is marked and, thanks also to William and Kate’s daughter’s signals of social confidence, she is often seen close to the Queen looking happy and relaxed, suggesting a mutually close relationship.

“She sat on the Queen’s lap for one formal portrait and when that position was taken by her younger brother Louis for the next formal shot it was still Charlotte sitting close, between the Queen and Prince Philip, raising one hand in the air to suggest she was totally relaxed and totally uninhibited in their company.”

The Queen also shared a sweet, fun bond with Mia Tindall, with Judi commenting: “There was a clue to another indulgent relationship between the Queen and one of her great-grandchildren here, too. Little Mia Tindall was seen carrying the Queen’s handbag in a cute and ground-breaking pose.

“The Queen sat looking totally unfazed by this gesture, suggesting Zara’s children are often allowed to play freely around their great-grandmother.”
