1. She’s A Supportive Grandmother
To kick off her grandson Prince Harry’s Invictus Games, the Queen gamely participated in a fun video challenging the Obamas to show her support.

Besides being super supportive of her family’s endeavours, the 90 year-old is fiercely protective of them too. As her other grandson, Prince William said in an interview, “Growing up, having this figurehead, having this stability above me has been incredible. I have been able to explore, understand, slightly carve my own path. I greatly appreciate and value that protection.”
Back in 1997 when Princess Diana passed away, the Queen flew her grandsons to Balmoral in Scotland to protect them from the public eye and gave them space to mourn in private.
