A few weeks after the ITV documentary Our Queen at Ninety aired in the United Kingdom, Canadians were finally able to watch the revealing program on Sunday night (Apr. 24). The captivating documentary, which was produced in honour of her 90th birthday, captures special moments between the Queen and her loving family, including the Duchess of Cambridge who opened up about the monarch in her first solo television interview.
Here are five of the most memorable moments from the documentary:
Kate reveals the name Prince George calls the Queen
"George is only two-and-a-half and he calls her 'Gan-Gan.' She always leaves a little gift or something in their room when we go and stay and that just shows her love for her family."
Prince Harry knows the next generation of royals have huge shoes to fill
He said: "People have always said, ‘do you feel as though you are following in her footsteps?’ That’s exactly what we are doing. There is nowhere on this planet that I can think of, that she hasn’t been in the last 90 years.
"She has been everywhere and that’s sometimes quite hard, because you go to a place where she hasn’t visited for maybe 20 years, maybe 15, and you just think to yourself, ‘how can I ever fulfil this huge expectation that comes with her and being a member of her family?.'"
Princess Eugenie dubs her 'Granny' a style icon
"Lots of my friends say, ‘Oh she's just the best style person there is, you know, she looks great in her clothes. The style is something that is very unique to her."
The 26-year-old described the Queen’s look as "elegant, classic," adding: "She's got a wonderful, happy colour to her at all times. I think that's the word – happy (laughs)."
The Queen was delighted Prince William and Kate's second child was a girl
"It's very special having a new little girl…I feel very, very lucky that George has got a little sister," Kate said. "The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl, and I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here."
Kate is amazed by how the Queen has juggled work with motherhood
"I have no idea where she gets her energy from – I need to go and ask a few more questions." Kate continued: "Being a mother and new in my job as well, I have no idea how the Queen has done it – with four children of her own.
"To manage all of those elements of your life – from the family, to the work as well as to the national importance of her role – it’s extraordinary. And for so long too – I think it’s really incredible."
