Prince George’s close bond with the Queen – from nickname to gran’s presents

Prince George has his own special name for the Queen, who is so so smitten by him and the other young Cambridges that leaves presents for them when they stay with her.

The Cambridge’s son used to call Elizabeth “Gan-Gan” and he has built up a close relationship with the Queen who clearly has a soft spot for him.

The List’s Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon has also pointed to claims that the Queen sees “a little of herself” in George’s shyness.

In ITV documentary “Our Queen at 90”, Kate Middleton told of George’s unique name for grandma.

“George is only two-and-half, calls her Gan-Gan” said Kate Middleton, for the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations in 2016.

Their close bond is also shown by the little presents Queen leaves for him and his siblings.

Kate told Hello magazine that the Queen “always leaves a little gift or something in their room when we go and stay and that just shows her love for her family”.

According to Christine, the Queen is "smitten" with George, who will turn eight later this week.

“The prince is growing up quickly but regardless of how old he is, Queen Elizabeth appears to be smitten,” she said.

“Since Prince George is expected to one day take the throne as the King of England, it won’t surprise you to learn that George and Her Majesty have a pretty close relationship.

“In fact some sources have said that the Queen even sees a little of herself in the young prince.”

Christine points out how the Queen was known to be more timid than her younger sister Princess Margaret, similar to how George is with Charlotte.

“She has long been said to be a calmer and more shy person than her own younger sister Princess Margaret,” she added.
