Family was incredibly important to the late Queen and she had a major impact on her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, with many of her grandchildren sharing memories of their time with their late "granny".

During her life, Her Majesty welcomed four children, who have each gone on to have their own brood, who in turn now have families of their own. Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana welcomed Princes William and Harry, the latter of whom welcomed his second child, Lilibet Diana, in June 2021.

William shares three children with the Princess of Wales – and that's just Charles' line of the family. So how many grandchildren and great-grandchildren did the Queen actually have and which one did she sadly never meet? Meet them below…

Who are the Queen's grandchildren?

In 2018 he married former actress Meghan Markle and the couple welcomed son Archie the following year, before welcoming their daughter on 4 June 2021.

In January 2020, the couple announced they were "stepping back" as senior members of the royal family and now live in Montecito, Santa Barbara with their two children.

The second child and only daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Charlotte was born on 2 May 2015 and is third in line to the throne.

Interestingly, this was the first royal home birth since the Queen's late sister, Princess Margaret, welcomed her daughter, Lady Sarah, at home in Kensington Palace in 1964.

Archie now lives with his parents and little sister Lilibet in Santa Barbara, California. He is sixth in line to the throne.

On 9 March 2023, Archie became known as Prince Archie, although the title is only used in formal settings as opposed to day-to-day life.
