I think the Queen has warmed to Camilla extraordinary well too. Even though they probably don't see each other that much, they seem to get along rather well.

This doesn't jive with reports made in memoirs. It sounds like the Queen has 'dropped in' at Highgrove to visit with Charles (we know that from one memoir: 'The Housekeeper's Diary').

Where do you get only 4 times in 30+ years? This is difficult to ascertain as both the Queen and Charles are not talking. Plus servants are bound by confidentially agreements. So how have you figured 4 times across 4 decades? Wondering.

You can still have the same relationship. Its also unconditional love.

Interestingly, Sarah seems to take tea with HM and spends time at Sandringham when Philip is not there. She regularly says she adores the Queen and that she is the most forgiving person she knows.

Note: I remember reading that Harry is someone HM feels very confident about. So much so that when the Olympic stunt was floated she said she'd ask Harry what he thought before deciding.
Honestly, since the relationship with Meghan first hit I have been doing so much extraneous royal reading I can't remember what I read where!
So William talks to the Queen regularly? How regularly? I did not know that about Harry and The Queen. That's interesting.

On the contrary - I have heard that they regularly have morning/afternoon tea together when free when both are in London and they do see each other quite a bit in Scotland.

Needless to say "regularly" is as specific as BP, CH and KP get.

Only makes sense given that Charles is taking over more and more of the Queen's daily work. Absolutely they would have to be talking to each other, I would think, and if the Queen (his mother) is in any way 'failing' it's likely Charles would want to keep in touch with her pretty 'regularly'.

Scotland makes sense, too. So far away it seems to me Charles and Camilla would be 'regular' guests to Balmoral and vice-versa. Makes sense. Why think otherwise?

There’s just no way to know how often members of the family interact with each other privately. I remember when it emerged that Catherine was taking George to BP regularly to swim in the pool there, it’s quite possible Catherine and the Queen have interactions we are unaware of. I’ve read that Zara and Peter and William are close, but had no idea that Eugenie and Harry were until it emerged that she’d set him up w/ Cressida and I assume Eugenie is close to William & Catherine since she attended Pippa’s wedding.
Regarding Sophie it must be a relief to the Queen that at least one of her children had a successful first marriage.

Overall, I think each member of the royal family has his or her own close relationship with the Queen and Philip. Sophie and Edward most likely do see more of the Queen than the other siblings because of living within close proximity. We often see Lady Louise out riding in Windsor Great Park and recently has taken up carriage driving which must tickle Philip pink as that is one of his passions.

When the Queen is at Windsor Castle, its been known that she goes around visiting. She used to often pop into cousin, Margaret Rhodes, home there for tea after church or visit with her horse trainer and stable master. William used to walk over the bridge from Eton to spend Sunday afternoons with his granny.

A lot of this kind of stuff doesn't come to be public knowledge because its their private time and to the Queen, her private times are sacrosanct. Its hard to believe that the Queen is anything but well loved by her family.

well they are certainly not going to advertise family ups and downs and quarrels. But I think the queen is certainly highly respected by all her relatives, and especially as she gets older, depends on them for companionship.

If proximity is a reason for visiting the Andrew would be with his parents as much or more than Edward as he lives a lot closer at Royal Lodge - 4.8 km compared to 18 km for Edward and Sophie.

I also imagine that another reason Edward and Sophie are often seen at Windsor with the queen is due to still having young children. Louise and James are still young enough to not have regular plans at the weekend with friends (although I imagine Louise is starting to get there) so they go to Granny’s to see her to make sure they’ve seen their grandparents regularly. The other grandchildren spent a lot of time with their grandparents as children so Louise and James are doing what the rest have done, only they’re doing it 20 years later.

That's true.I think that Ed and Sophie because they married add had their children late, are still at the "staying home with the kids" stage, whereas the other children have long since passed that stage. Their children are grown up, working and have children and busy lives...

I wonder what the relationship is between Meghan and her aunts and uncles-in-law?

Meghan and Edward? Does Princes Andrew and Edward get along with their niece-in-law?

I've read Andrew doesn't care for Meghan. But I only read that once, with no corroboration with any other press, so I assumed it wasn't true.

One mention in the totally reliable Express, that Andrew had been cold to her on first meeting her. We all know how reliable these 'sources' are from private family events.

I doubt Meghan has spent enough time with any of them to have really built any kind of relationship with them. Other then Harry, William and Kate, and Charles and Camilla. She will have met the uncles and cousins at things like Easter and Christmas but likely not much else. And since they spent Christmas at Amner, not at the main house, would have seen the rest of the family at church and the formal family meals.

The press like to stir remember.

It was only a year or so back that press stories were so bad about Andrew and Charles' relationship that Andrew released a statement denying any rift. That hasn't stopped the press continuing to portray Andrew in a bad light. His work is never covered - and he is very involved in helping young people get together with investors through Pitch@Palace but that doesn't rate ...

The press has had a narrative for decades:

one royal = good
next royal = bad

so 'good Elizabeth' and 'bad Margaret'

then 'good Charles' and 'bad Andrew'

soon it will be 'good William' and 'bad Harry'

The heir has to be built up at the expense of the second and Andrew therefore has to be portrayed as disliking Charles' future daughter-in-law just as Charles has to be shown as regarding Andrew's daughters as not up to standard.

As I stated in another thread, the media has a storyline that goes back decades, whoever is king or is going to be King/Queen is good while the other one is bad, and it only happens with the ones who are the same gender:
Albert Victor and George
Edward VIII and George VI
Margaret and Elizabeth
Charles and Andrew
William and Harry
In 2036 we can start seeing the commentators painting George as a saint and Louis as the bad boy prince.

To be fair, the media and public's dislike of Andrew isn't all because he's the second son. He's made questionable choices long past an age where it's understandable.

Except that with Albert Victor and George, or Edward VIII and George VI, it was actually the other way around, i.e. the older brother bad and the younger good. And, with William and Harry, I have never seen any such comparisons.
