Queen Elizabeth is like a typical grandmother when she sees the littlest ones in her family. With all that cuteness going around, who can blame her.


According to Closer Weekly, Queen Elizabeth's reaction during Zoom calls with her great-grandchildren is a pleasant sight to see. It's certainly a welcome recline amidst the chaos going on today.

A source through the outlet says the 94-year-old is spending her time in self-isolation at Windsor, enjoying hobbies like horse-riding, dog-walking, and having tea.

"The Queen is a real country girl at heart and loves being outdoors. She's also enjoying dressing down for a change!" said the source. The Queen hasn't attended a public function in over a month now.

Her grandchild Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton are at their Norfolk residence in Anmer Hall. With them are their three children, Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.


In Los Angeles, Prince Harry is settled in the hometown of his wife, Meghan Markle, with their son, Archie. The royal monarch regularly calls in to catch up.



"Her face lights up when she sees her great-grandchildren on a video call," said the source to Closer last Friday. When speaking to the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the queen also talks about their new residence.

Harry and Markle moved to Los Angeles mere months ago after stepping down as senior royals. The Queen has reportedly "praised" their charitable efforts since relocating.

"The Queen told them all about her birthday and how she'd had a lovely day, despite being on lockdown," the source alleged. The monarch celebrated her birthday with her usual chocolate cake back in late April.

In mid-June, when things settled down, the royal staff organized a special military ceremony to further celebrate the monarch's big day. Held at the Windsor Castle, it was aired on BBC One.

Recently, the Queen's husband Prince Philip turned a whopping 99 years old. The Duke of Edinburgh celebrated by sharing a rare photo of him and his wife standing on the grass outside the Windsor Castle.

The Queen wore a flowered dress while Phillip proudly wore his Household Division tie. The pair reportedly took the shot on June 1. Philip did little on his big day besides having lunch with the Queen.



Both of them are doing well, considering their age. Earlier this month, the Queen even shared her favorite horses' names through her head groom, Terry Pendry.

The Queen's assistant revealed that these days, the monarch is sticking to riding native ponies because they're "a little closer to the ground, so to speak."

While the Queen has been horse-riding for years, she's less familiar with online socializing and video calling. She's certainly getting into it, but it was just in June she took part in her first public video call.



Princess Anne joined the monarch for the recorded event in which the pair thanked carers to honor Carers Week. In the clip, some of the workers explained the challenges of their job as they delighted in speaking to the Queen.

In the comment section, royal families fans also expressed their excitement at seeing the Queen. We can imagine the happiness was somewhat similar to the Queen's calls with her family.
