The Cambridges are undoubtedly the most talked-about family in the world, with Prince William and Kate Middleton stepping up this year and elevating their roles amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

From welcoming baby Lilibet and releasing sweet family videos to the recent reports that the Duchess of Cambridge is stepping into the late Prince Philip's shoes, the Cambridges are all anyone can talk about.

This week, it was the Duchess who made headlines, as she was caught on camera greeting her father-in-law, Prince Charles, at a recent family outing.

The Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge all attended a reception at the Eden Project in Cornwall last Friday as part of the G7 summit.

While the family arrived together, Prince Charles could be seen to look back at one point, greeted enthusiastically by Kate Middleton, something that everyone involved seemed to find very amusing.

Thankfully, lip readers have revealed what was said by the Duchess of Cambridge, with Kate reportedly greeting Prince Charles as 'Grandpa' - a nod to her three children.

'Hello Grandpa! How are you?', Kate can be seen saying to the Prince of Wales upon arrival, something that prompted a smile from the Royal. These two!

It's no secret that Kate Middleton and Prince Charles have a special bond. In fact, Prince Charles even gifted his daughter-in-law with a very special gift when she wed his son, Prince William.

He gave her a jewellery set worth around £90,000, which included a bracelet, ring and earrings, all made of diamonds, white and yellow gold, according to The Express.

They are said to have been custom made, meaning they weren’t part of the royal jewellery collection, unlike Kate Middleton’s ring, a sapphire surrounded by diamonds which used to belong to Princess Diana.
