Think of Queen Elizabeth II’s grandchildren, and Prince William or Prince Harry will most likely come to mind. And although the monarch clearly loves those two very much, apparently she has a favorite grandchild – and it’s neither of them. The individual in question is actually less prominently in the public eye. There are many members of the royal family who prefer to live life outside of the spotlight, in fact. And the Queen has a particular liking for a younger member of that crowd.
The Queen has more grandchildren and great-grandchildren than you may expect. She has eight of the former, in fact, and six of the latter. Among the grandchildren are William and Harry, of course, along with Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall – both of whom bear no titles – Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.
