It has been one year since the Queen’s death was reported on by the world’s media.
The four-year-old’s remark reflected the fact it was a family loss, and not just a national one.
Altogether the late monarch has 13 great-grandchildren
To Britain, the death of Queen Elizabeth II exactly one year ago at her Scottish estate of Balmoral represented the loss of a sovereign and a head of state for seven decades.
But to some of the youngest members of the Royal Family, the late monarch was just their loving ‘Granny’ or ‘Gan Gan’ who comforted them in times of need.
In total, she was a great-grandmother of 13, with the youngest being the second child of Princess Eugenie, Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank.
Born on May 30, 2023, he is the newest royal baby – and the first to be born after her death.

The eldest is 11-year-old Savannah Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne’s son Peter Phillips and now ex-wife Autumn Kelly.
Altogether nine are believed to not have attended her funeral, and did not get to say goodbye to their great-grandmother.
Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, were spotted at the service at Westminster Abbey, while their brother four-year-old Prince Louis was not there.

Mia Tindall, eight, and Lena Tindall, four – the grandchildren of Princess Anne – were pictured at a vigil for Her Majesty.
Her great-grandchildren’s attendance at such solemn events and at such a young age suggests the deep relationship they had with her.
Away from her duties, the Queen had her hands full with the latest generation of royals.
In honour of what would have been her 97th birthday, the Royal Family released a never-before-seen photograph of her with some of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Taken by Kate Middleton, it shows her surrounded by the children, who all look to be beaming with excitement to spend time with her.
The eight great-grandchildren in the shot included George, Charlotte and Louiswho had last been photographed in public making grimaces next to the Queen at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022.
Another remarkable picture of Her Majesty showed her standing over Harry and Meghan’s son Archie soon after his birth.
The Queen looks absolutely besotted with her great-grandchild, not able to hide her joy.
Though she remained stoic by nature during her reign, she always looked like a doting ‘Granny’, even with future king Prince George.
