The queen met her future husband, Prince Philip, when she was just 13. They got married in 1947 and they have four children, Prince Charles, who is heir to the throne, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

Grandsons Prince William and Prince Harry don't call the queen "Your Majesty." To them, she's just "Granny."
