... Prince Michael is a grandson of King George V - his father and the Queen's father were brothers ...

There were 2 other brothers - Duke of Gloucester and the Duke of Kent. The Duke of Kent died during WW2. Prince Michael of Kent is his younger son and Frederick is his son. Wikipedia has lots on the Kents.

They meet at several occasions, but he is closer in age to Prince Charles than to her.

Lord Frederick and Prince William studied together in Eton College, as I heard.

Biri, are you kidding me? I think they know each other very well for 70 years now, as the Prince just turned that age. They are not just relatives but paternal first cousins and both full members of the Royal Family. For example, Prince Michael was a page at the future Queen Elizabeth's wedding to Philip Mountbatten. Additionally, the Duke of Edinburgh is a close relative of the Kents too, as Prince Michael's mother was his paternal first cousin. They were both born a Prince and a Princess of Greece and Denmark. Prince Michael is much younger than the Queen, but they are from the same family, who traditionally is very close and stick togerther. Royalty is a very homogenous social class.
I think through all these years, Prince Michael and the Queen attended the same private events, such as birthdays, weddings, christenings, funerals, etc., etc. They also spent some free time together, such as Christmas and summers, especially in the past when the Queen was not the Queen yet and when her children were young. The Queen and her royal cousins were her closest family members in her age or close to her age then and naturally, she was closer to them than it is today. And since Prince Michael reached adulthood and he is able to perform official duties, he joins the Queen on state banquets, garden parties, commemorative ceremonies, openning ceremonies, military parades, etc., etc.

And Pranter ---> have you ever heard of Google? :>

Congrats!

Great news! A 'surprise baby' since they said they had no plans to start a family :)

I think they will be great parents and of course Prince and Princess Michael of Kent wonderful grandparents. I can't wait to see Princess Michael of Kent as a granny

Congratulations!
Sophie had always talked about her desire to have children later even before their marriage. It's my guess of course, but it seems to me that after the announcement of Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy ( and even before), Prince and Princess Michael very much insisted to become grand-parents, also it was their natural desire to see their grand-children being alive.
