The Queen and Prince Philip are mum and dad to Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward – but according to one royal expert she has an “obvious” favourite
While most of us see the Queen as a dedicated monarch who has led her country for 67 years, to her four children she is just mum.
Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh, Philip are parents to four children. Those four children include Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. But according to one royal expert, Queen Elizabeth has an “obvious” favourite. Now, we know what your answer would be.
And, its not what you think.
The eldest royal couple fell pregnant with the Prince of Wales shortly after their wedding. And Princess Anne followed just a year later. But there was then an 11-year gap before next royal baby. And during those years, King George VI died and Princess Elizabeth became the Queen.

In Jeremy Paxman’s new documentary, the journalist spoke to royal historian Piers Brendon. Mr Brendon believes Prince Andrew is Her Majesty’s favourite child. Most assume Charles is in the top spot as he’s set to follow in her footsteps as monarch. However, Piers claims there is a very specific reason why Andrew beats him in Queen Elizabeth’s eyes.

He said: “Andrew skipped university and went straight to naval college. And this went down well with his naval officer father. He completed the Marines Commando course”.
“And, it was just to show that he could, before qualifying as a helicopter pilot. Then, aged just 22, he fought in the Falklands. And so, its pretty clear that Prince Andrew is obviously Queen Elizabeth’s favourite son. He was heroic during the Falklands War. It’s clear that she has a soft spot for him”.
