Queen Elizabeth has always had a special bond with her grandson, Prince William, and it looks like those warm feelings also extend to her grandson’s wife, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. Considering Kate and William have been in each other’s lives since the early 2000s, the Queen has had plenty of time to get to know her granddaughter-in-law, and we think she’s very much a fan of Kate (as are we!) — after all, Kate did go to the trouble of making the queen a chutney for Christmas using her own grandmother’s recipe.

From their quality time together with Prince George to the Queen’s reported reaction to Prince Louis’ birth, it very much seems like Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge share a pretty heartwarming connection. And since they always get along so well in public, we can only imagine how much fun they have as a family behind the cameras!
