Prince William hails 'brilliant grandmother' Queen Elizabeth

May 25, 2012 - Washington

Prince William has admitted that he has always had a healthy respect for his grandmother because she juggled the task with her royal responsibilities well.

The young royal believes that Queen Elizabeth has done a brilliant job as his grandmother.

"I always remember having a healthy respect for my grandmother. There's such scrutiny on the job that I think you have to be very, very careful how you carve your path. But she's done it brilliantly," he said.

Speaking on 'The Jubilee Queen with Katie Couric' which airs in the United States on May 29 on ABC, he revealed that he and his 27-year-old brother Prince Harry have been 'cheeky' grandchildren.

"I still think she's just my grandmother, really. I'm probably a bit of a cheeky grandson, my brother as well, the 29-year-old said.

Talking about his marriage to the Duchess of Cambridge an year ago he revealed that he was very nervous on the 'big day'.

"It was one of those days where you feel very elated. Also completely terrified, I have to be honest. The prospect of two billion people watching was quite daunting," he added.
