The Queen has met William and Kate and would love to see some of the royal children as she continues to recover from Covid, it is reported.
The Cambridges said met the monarch as they searched for a new school for Prince George in Berkshire, where the boy is expected to open in September.
The Queen saw Cambridge’s three children as well as Princess Beatrice and her daughter Sienna at Frogmore Cottage on her Windsor Estate last Sunday.
She tested positive for Covid last week after the virus was passed around the Royal Family and this is a chance to see everyone again as she “recovers well”.

The Queen suffered health concerns late last year when she had to call off royal engagements and last week she was unable to attend with others due to isolation.
The Cambridges’ trip to meet the Queen coincided with them searching for a new home in Windsor after seeing the matching property.
They are expected to live in the Royal Borough on weekends and holidays.
The Windsor location is close to Kate’s family home in Bucklebury, where her mother and father Michael and Carole Middleton enjoy being cared for by their grandparents.

However, royal watchers say the couple’s weekday base will remain Kensington Palace.
Anmer Hall, their Norfolk home, could then return to the Queen for private transfer or lease.
William and Kate are currently mapping out where they want to settle down as a family.
But it may be 20 years before the couple take the throne and they want to give their children the most normal childhood possible before that.
The royal couple have a comfortable home office at Kensington Palace and are said to be conscious of the £4.5million cost to taxpayers to improve the 20-room flat their.
George will be nine in July, but Kate and William believe he should move to a suburban school with on-campus facilities.
Schools, weekly boarding or ‘flexi’ reportedly being reviewed.
