All About Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's 8 Grandchildren

Queen Elizabeth II shared a special bond with her grandchildren.

The queen, who died on Sept. 8 at age 96, and her husband, the late Prince Philip, shared eight grandchildren ranging from 44 years old to 14 years old.

While the monarch rarely spoke publicly about her family, she did share several sweet moments with her grandchildren at public events, including official royal outings and royal weddings.

In addition to being a grandmother, Queen Elizabeth was also a great-grandmother to 12, with her first great-grandchild being Peter Phillips' daughter, Savannah Phillips, in December 2010 and her most recent being Prince Harry's daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, in June 2021.

Born on June 21, 1982, to Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, Prince William is Queen Elizabeth's third grandchild. Following the Queen's death, William is now first in line to the throne now that his father has assumed the throne.

On April 29, 2011, William tied the knot with Kate Middleton during an extravagant ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London, England. The couple has since welcomed three children together: Prince George in July 2013, Princess Charlotte in May 2015, and Prince Louis in April 2018.

William has shared many sweet moments with his grandmother over the years, including at various official royal events. Queen Elizabeth was also in attendance at William's royal wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011, at which she loaned her Cartier Halo tiara to the new Duchess of Cambridge.

Born on September 15, 1984, to Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, Prince Harry is Queen Elizabeth's fourth grandchild. Following the birth of his brother Prince William's three children, the Duke of Sussex is fifth in line to the throne.

On May 19, 2018, he married Meghan Markle during a royal wedding at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple has since welcomed two children together, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in May 2019 and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor in June 2021, the latter of which was named after the Queen.

Harry and the queen clearly shared a special bond, with Queen Elizabeth previously referring to him as her "dearly beloved" grandson and sharing many memorable moments with him at events over the years. (And who could forget the famous "mic drop" moment they filmed for the Invictus Games?)

Princess Beatrice

Born on August 8, 1988, to Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Princess Beatrice is Queen Elizabeth's fifth grandchild. The royal is currently ninth in line to the throne.

On July 17, 2020, Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at Royal Chapel of All Saints, Royal Lodge, Windsor. For the special ceremony, she wore the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara which was also worn by the Queen at her own wedding — and repurposed a gown the Queen had worn in the 1950s to wear as a wedding gown. Through their marriage, Beatrice became a stepmother to Edoardo's son Christopher Woolf. She later gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi, in September 2021.

"They are exceptionally close," a source told PEOPLE at the time of the wedding of Beatrice and Queen Elizabeth's bond. "Beatrice talks about her grandmother often, and it's clear there's a strong bond there — the dress and the tiara could not have been more perfect."

Born on March 23, 1990, to Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Princess Eugenie is Queen Elizabeth's sixth grandchild. Following the birth of her sister Beatrice's daughter, Eugenie is currently 11th in line to the throne.

On October 12, 2018, Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank during a royal wedding at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple later welcomed a son named August Philip Hawke Brooksbank in February 2021.

Ahead of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Eugenie shared with The Spectator magazine what she hopes her son learns from the Queen: "I think about my son August and what I'd like for him, what kind of world I'd like him to grow up in. And I think of my granny and what she has stood for, for so many people and for our family during these 70 years. I'd love Augie to have her patience, her calmness and her kindness, while always being able to laugh at himself and keep a twinkle in his eye."
