I thought that they would call her "Yaya" since that is usually what kids call their Greek grandmothers. I don't call my grandmother Abuela either (it sounds so formal), I call her Mama. It's like Mamá, without an emphasis on the a.

In Spain many grandsons also call yaya to the grandmother, but the queen is “amamá” (like twice mother). She and their brothers thus called to their grandmother Victoria Luisa de Prusia, and his children to queen Federica also. However to Doña Maria, mother of the king, called “Ia”, because thus she began calling it infant Elena when she was very small and not yet she knew to speak. GREETINGS!

Yes, I get the "twice mother" thing, that is the exact reason why I call my abuela "mama". The Queen is definitely like a second mother to them, the best word to describe her is "cariñosa". She's my favorite!

Amazing walk down memory lane. I agree, they all appear relaxed and carefree...even the King appears somewhat relaxed.
