Queen Elizabeth II clearly adores Prince George, Princess Charlotte and her other great-grandchildren, but she rarely opens up about them to the public.

The Queen will soon have another royal baby to spoil and gush over when Meghan Markle gives birth to her and Prince Harry's first child. For now, let's look back at the rare comments Queen Elizabeth II have made about her seven grandchildren: Savannah Phillips, Isla Phillips, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Mia Tindall and Lena Elizabeth Tindall.

Prince George

Back in 2013, the Queen subtly mentioned Prince George during her Christmas speech. "Here at home, my own family is a little larger this Christmas. As so many of you will know, the arrival of a baby gives everyone the chance to contemplate the future with renewed happiness and hope," she said of Prince William and Kate Middleton's firstborn.

Princess Charlotte

Middleton and Prince William welcomed Prince George's younger sibling, Princess Charlotte, two years after his birth. And the Duchess of Cambridge said that Her Majesty had been very happy that the royal couple had a little girl this time.

"It's very special having a new little girl…I feel very, very lucky that George has got a little sister," Middleton said during an interview for the "Our Queen at Ninety" documentary. The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl, and I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here."

Last year, Queen Elizabeth II also shared one funny tidbit about Middleton and Prince William's middle child. She asked a little girl visiting Sandringham house last year if she "looked after" her younger sister.

The young lady's mother revealed that it was actually the younger sister looking after her older sibling. And in response, Queen Elizabeth shared, "It's like that with Charlotte and George."

Prince Louis

Like with Prince George in 2013, Queen Elizabeth II also subtly mentioned Prince William and Middleton's youngest child during her 2018 Christmas speech

"Closer to home, it’s been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies, and another child expected soon. It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied," she said, after admitting that she was "well-occupied" as a grandmother.

The Queen also proudly showed off a portrait of baby Louis during her speech.

Mia Tindall

Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall's daughter, Mia, is quite the precocious girl and once held on to her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth's handbag during a photoshoot. 

During an interview on "Good Morning Britain," her father opened up about what really happened during the Queen's 90th birthday portrait photoshoot in 2016. Mike revealed that Mia had been "a bit naughty," so Queen Elizabeth II asked her to hold her bag.

"The Queen got it quite right when she told her, 'Just hold the handbag now,' and she did that. It ended up being a great photo of her," he shared.
