The Queen blasts grandchildren for loading the dishwasher
Hands off the crystal glasses!
As well as being the British monarch, a position she has held for more than 66 years, Queen Elizabeth is a grandmother to eight grandchildren - and they haven't always behaved in the most appropriate manner for their 'royal' statuses, according to reports.
The Queen has always played a hands-on role with Peter Phillips, 41, Zara Tindall, 38, Prince William, 37, Prince Harry, 35, Princess Beatrice, 31, Princess Eugenie, 29, Lady Louise Windsor, 15, and James, Viscount Seven, 11, who have all brought her endless happiness - along with the usual family dramas, which have often been compounded by royal expectations.

According to a 2016 report in the Daily Express, the Queen’s cousin, Lady Elizabeth Anson, revealed that aside from her dismay that many of her grandchildren seemed to lack the art of conversation, she also confessed they had begun to help out the Palace staff.
“I suppose it’s because they’re always getting up and down and helping somebody and putting something in a dishwasher or whatever they’re doing," she told the publication.
"They don't have enough staff."

While she may be unhappy that her grandchildren have been pulling their weight at the Palace, Queen Elizabeth is also partial to getting involved in the day-to-day running of the place.
