As it turns out, the monarch’s only daughter, Princess Anne, might have a very different relationship with her royal parents.

The Queen and her children

Her Majesty became a mother almost 70 years ago. She gave birth to her first child, Prince Charles, in 1948. Two years later, she welcomed her only daughter Princess Anne. Then, the Queen waited more than a decade before she gave birth to two more sons, Prince Andrew in 1960 and Prince Edward in 1964.

Previously, a human behavioral expert and author Susan Constantine analyzed the photos of the Queen with her children, giving a little glimpse at what kind of relationship she has with them.

She said that Prince Charles has a special bond with his mother, as they are very connected with each other. When looking at snaps with the Queen and Prince Anne, Constantine says that the distance between the two is visible. Even though they are close, but not too close.


Prince Andrew exudes the admiration towards Her Majesty, wanting to be closer to her, whilst Prince Edward is the Queen’s “precious little boy.”

Prince Anne and her father

According to HELLO, Prince Ann is thought to be Prince Philip’s favorite child. When Prince Charles is believed to be like the Queen, Prince Anne shares similar qualities with her father.

When the royal princess was born, Prince Philip allegedly said:

It's the sweetest girl.

The royal biographer, Ingrid Seward, says Princess Anne commented about her parents:

They were supportive and never really quibbled about what you wanted to do.


Accomplished royal

Just like her father used to be, Prince Anne is a working royal. Out from all of the Queen’s children, she is considered to be the most successful at having an independent identity.
