Queen Elizabeth II is still tickled pink! The royal family's matriarch gushed about her new great-granddaughter, Kate Middleton and Prince William's newborn daughter Princess Charlotte, during a garden party at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, May 12.
Prince William and Prince Harry's grandmother was joined by 8,000 guests for the public engagement. She fielded plenty of congratulations from the crowd, and briefly opened up about the new addition.
North London resident Susan Pollack, 84, was one of the lucky attendees to speak with the Queen. "I told her I'm so happy at the arrival of another baby," she recalled, via Mirror. "She said, 'Yes, we love to have another girl.' She smiled at that. She was very relaxed and enjoying the event."
Pollack's daughter, Sandra Gee, added: "[The Queen] said how pleased she was to have another great-granddaughter."
Pleased, yes, but when someone calls Princess Charlotte her grandchild by accident? Rubbish!
"I said [to the Queen] congratulations on your new granddaughter," guest Carole Weston said. "She corrected me and said, 'No, great-granddaughter.'" (The Queen has eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.)
Princess Charlotte was born at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, on May 2. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently spending time with their little one and son Prince George, 21 months, at their countryside home in Norfolk.
