What does the Royal Family do when not attending engagements or meeting the public? Behind the royal scenes are also grandmothers and grandfathers, relatives and friends, with their own interests, including Queen Camilla.

Queen Camilla has revealed that she has a very close relationship with her granddaughters.

Eliza Lopes, 14, is the daughter of Camilla’s daughter Laura Lopes and her husband Harry Lopes.

Lola Parker Bowles, 15, is the daughter of Tom Parker Bowles and Sara Parker Bowles.

Camilla didn’t specify which one, but did reveal that she shared a sweet evening ritual with one of the girls.

She said, “I do Wordle every day with my granddaughter.”

And while Camilla’s teenage granddaughter is pretty sharp when it comes to the game, it’s Queen Camilla who usually wins.

Camilla said: “She’ll text me to say, ‘I made it in three’, and I’m like, ‘Sorry, I made it in two today’.

Camilla admitted she might have a slight competitive streak: “It’s very satisfying when it tells you how brilliant you are,” she told Vogue.


But aside from the tricky but addictive pun and iMessaging back and forth, what else does Camilla do with her grandkids?

Ever the doting grandmother, the Queen Consort likes to do things any typical grandmother would do.

She admitted she was keen to give them “more things their parents usually forbid them to have”.

She also enjoys spending quality time with them, taking advantage of the fact that one of her grandchildren lives near her home in Wiltshire.

Camilla explained that when her parents are away, she likes to pick her up and bring her home.

Camilla has five grandchildren from her children, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes.

They are Lola Parker Bowles, Freddy Parker Bowles, Eliza Lopes, Louis Lopes and Gus Lopes.

Of course, Camilla also has five step-grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.
