She may be the monarch and she is among the most famous and influential women in the world.

But to her eight grandchildren, the Queen is simply their grandmother and responds whenever she is called Granny.

But for one of his grandchildren, he did not realize that his grandmother and the queen are the same person, and only found out in an extraordinary way.

According to her mother, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, 18-year-old Lady Louise Windsor “had no idea” that her grandmother, whom she calls “grandma”, was famous when she was younger.

Sophie, 57, told Sky News in an interview on the occasion of the Queen’s 90th birthday: “I want to say that Louise had no idea that the Queen and her grandmother were the same person.

“It wasn’t until she was in school that other kids brought it up and said, ‘Your grandmother is the Queen.’

“And she would come home and say, ‘Mom, they say Grandma is the queen.’ And I said, ‘Yes,’ and she said, ‘I don’t understand what they mean.’”

In the same interview, her father, Prince Edward, also said that he didn’t realize his mother was the monarch until he was five or six years old.

Louise is currently still in school studying for her A levels.

He said: “I can’t necessarily remember when that realization was.

“When you grow up in that family and in that environment, that’s just what your parents do.

“It’s been so much more interesting watching our kids grow up and watching our kids try to figure out what this is and how it works. It probably wasn’t until five or six, I think.

Lady Louise, who is currently studying for her A-Levels, grew up largely out of the spotlight and has a very close relationship with the Queen and the late Prince Philip.

She and her brother James are said to have spent a lot of time with their grandparents due to their living near Windsor and being around at a time when Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh had stopped traveling internationally.

A source previously told the Sun: “The Queen loves the fact that Louise and James enjoy their time at Balmoral, and has become particularly close to Louise, who seems to have become her favorite granddaughter, closely followed by James”.

Now that she has turned 18, Louise will have to make a big decision, and it is about her title.

When she and her younger brother James were born, her parents decided that they would not use their titles of His Royal Highness.

However, mum Sophie revealed in an interview last year that they do have the titles, and it will be up to them when they turn 18 if they want to use them.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, Sophie said: “We try to bring them up with the understanding that they are very likely to have to work for a living.

“Therefore, we made the decision not to use the SAR titles.

“They have them and they can decide to use them from the age of 18, but I think it’s very unlikely.”
