The sweet way the Cambridge kids have been keeping in touch with the Queen in isolation

By Zach Harper

The Queen is a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and the Royal Family is trying to make sure she stays connected to her loved ones during the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are known to call their great-grandmother "Gan Gan." The Sun reports the three adorable youngsters have been keeping in touch with her by sending her sweet videos and calling her on the phone while she's at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip.

"Kate... ensures that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis speak to the Queen... and Prince Philip, as often as possible," the source told the publication. "The older two talk on the telephone or send chatty videos to Windsor."

The Sun also reports Prince Charles, who has recovered from COVID-19, received get well soon cards from the three Cambridge children and they've been speaking to him on the phone and via video as well.

"They do like to chat away to Grandpa Charles and get lots of very helpful tips from him on animals and flowers, and speak to him about lambs, squirrels, highland cattle," the source told the publication.

In times when connecting with family matters perhaps more than ever, we're happy to see the Queen and her loved ones doing just that, just like us!

April is, after all, a big month for the Royal Family, with the Queen's 94th birthday coming up on April 21 and Louis's second birthday two days later. We imagine Her Majesty will make good use of these video chat sessions to catch up with her great-grandchildren over Easter weekend – we're sure they'll want to show her everything the Easter Bunny brought them, along with any arts and crafts they've made!

On April 5, the Queen made a rare TV broadcast in which she addressed the coronavirus pandemic with viewers in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. She stressed the importance of the world working together to help beat the illness.

"While we have faced challenges before, this one is different," she said in her remarks from Windsor Castle. "This time, we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal.

"We will succeed - and that success will belong to every one of us. We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again, we will be with our families again, we will meet again. But for now, I send my thanks and warmest good wishes to you all."
