"She reminds me of my grandma. I was like, 'Wow, that's how my grandma is!'" he explained.

"It's just a different generation of patience and respect. [She's] elegant, classy and the way she wore her hat... even her clothes are like my grandma's clothes! She's the leader of the family, you know, and when Prince Charles called her Mummy or Mumsy I was like, 'Wow!'

"It's amazing because they're just regular people," he added. "They're in the public eye but they manage to live straight."
