12 Times Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton Proved They’re the Best of Chums


Queen Elizabeth had a special bond with her grandson, Prince William, and it looks like those warm feelings extended to her grandson’s wife, Kate Middleton. Considering Kate and William have been in each other’s lives since the early 2000s, the queen had plenty of time to get to know her granddaughter-in-law, and we think she was 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 seemed like Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge shared a heartwarming connection. And since they always got along so well in public, we can only imagine how much fun they had as a family behind the cameras!
