Queen Elizabeth wore crown at bath time
Jun 1, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Queen Elizabeth used to wear her crown during her children's bath time.
The 86-year-old monarch - who is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this weekend - would come and see her eldest kids, Prince Charles and Princess Anne while they were being washed but wouldn't wear regular attire.
Charles - who was four when his mother was crowned as queen - recalled: 'I remember my Mama coming, you know, up, when we were being bathed as children, wearing the crown. It was quite funny.'
The royal - who is set to become king when his mother dies or abdicates - says he has huge admiration for his mother because she has raised a family as well serving her country for the past 60 years.
Speaking about the queen - who has two other children, Princes Andrew and Edward, eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren - Charles told BBC One documentary 'A Jubilee Tribute to the Queen by the Prince of Wales': 'My Mama takes great pride in her family, from being a young mother at the start of her reign, to now being a great grandmother twice over.
'The fact that my Mama has been a constant feature on the scene has provided that sense, I think, of continuity in a time of immense change over 60 years.'
