Queen Elizabeth had plenty of descendants, with four children, eight grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren to her name. But, as a grandmother, there's one royal with an even more voluminous collection—Camilla, Queen Consort. King Charles III's wife is not only step-grandmother to Charles's five grandchildren, she also has five grandkids of her own through her children from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.
Here, we break down the who's who of the Queen's grandchildren.
The eldest of Camilla's grandchildren, Lola is the daughter of Camilla's son, Tom Parker Bowles, and his wife, Sarah Parker Bowles. She was born in 2007 and may be the grandchild that Camilla referred to in her 2022 interview with British Vogue when she revealed that she was a Wordle fan. “I do Wordle every day with my granddaughter," Camilla said. "She’ll text me to say, ‘I’ve done it in three’, and I say, ‘Sorry, I’ve done it in two today.’ It’s very satisfactory when it tells you how brilliant you are."
Born the year after Lola, Eliza is Camilla's only other granddaughter (and therefore another possible Wordle compatriot). Aged 14, she's the daughter of Camilla's daughter Laura Lopes and her husband Harry Lopes, but she was still a toddler when she became perhaps the best-known of Camilla's biological grandchildren when she appeared in Prince William and Kate Middleton's 2011 wedding.
"The girls are beginning to get into clothes and make-up and, you know, it’s rather frightening when you see them, coming out with pierced ears and a lot of new make-up and funny-coloured hair and stuff," Camilla told British Vogue in 2022. She also revealed in the same interview that she sometimes picks up one of the girls from her school near Camilla's home in Wiltshire, though it's not clear which one.
Eliza's younger brothers, the twins, were born in 2009 to Laura and Harry Lopes. While they may not have made a royal wedding appearance like their big sister, it seems they're likely keeping close tabs on their royal grandma. Camilla told British Vogue that she frequently texts with her grandkids, saying, "It’s very nice getting a text. We learn from very young people and they learn from us, too. That’s the way it’s always been."
Just under a year younger than Louis and Gus, Freddy is the youngest of Camilla's biological grandchildren. His father is Tom Parker Bowles and his mother is Sarah Parker Bowles.
While Camilla might not share a gene pool with the eldest of the Wales kids, she had already been married to George's grandfather, King Charles, for years by the time George was born in 2013 and is regularly seen with the young royal at family events.
The Prince and Princess of Wales's only daughter, Princess Charlotte is often seen chatting with her step-grandmother Camilla at royal events.
That's right, Camilla has two grandkids named Louis. In this case, Louis is Prince William and Kate Middleton's youngest, but at four years old, he's already a scene-stealer.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child, Archie, lives in California with his parents, so he doesn't get to see his step-grandmother as often as his UK cousins. However, he did accompany his parents for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022, and may have seen Camilla then.
The Sussex's youngest child, 1-year-old Lili got to meet her extended royal family for the first time during the Platinum Jubilee, though it hasn't been officially confirmed whether she and Camilla got any face time.2022-06-26T12:06:26Z dg43tfdfdgfd
