Queen Elizabeth II’s Living Legacy are Her Grandchildren: Here’s a Look at Each of Them

A large and beautiful family.


I love the royal family — especially Queen Elizabeth II. Though she’s gone, she’ll never be forgotten. A committed and thoughtful leader, she reigned as Britain’s monarch for seven decades. In her private life, she was a loving grandmother and great-grandchildren to the children in the royal family. Here’s everything we know about Queen Elizabeth II’s eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. 

Who are Queen Elizabeth’s grandchildren?

Queen Elizabeth has eight grandchildren. Their births span 30 years, from 1977 to 2007, and their names — not surprisingly, given the public’s appetite for all things royal family — have been trending on lists of baby names throughout this time.
