Let’s take a look at the relationship between the Queen and her grandson.

Queen Elizabeth’s closeness with her grandson

Even royals are not exempted from having favorites. The Queen became closer to her grandson, Prince William, because of his role as the future king, according to royal biographer Juliet Rieden.

For this reason, the monarch’s closeness to William rather than his younger brother is understandable. Though the two royal brothers have different key roles to play, the Queen isn’t a fan of either of them at the moment.

Queen and William’s complicated relationship

The Queen has spent a lot of years mentoring her grandson, Prince William for his role as the future King of England. With the two working closely many are of the opinion this would make the Duke a favorite of the Queen.

Speaking to Nine News Australia, Juliet said:

Prince William is going to be king one day. The Queen is 93 and she’s offloading a lot of her work both to her son and to her grandson. William has really had to up the ante and take on a lot of this heavy lifting.

Meanwhile, E! News royal correspondent Melanie Bromley said the relationship of Prince William and his grandmother is “half family and half business”.

In addition to their complicated relationship, Her Majesty reportedly does “not care” about the alleged feud between her two grandchildren – William and Harry. This is coming after reports of the alleged rift between the royal brothers got to another level.

Britain’s next king

A royal ancestry Matt Baker has claimed that the Duke of Cambridge should be crowned the next king of England instead of his father, Prince Charles as he is “more royal.” The expert claimed Princess Diana comes from a more “royal bloodline”, which makes William “more royal” than his dad.
