I will be meeting DH's nana for the first time today, what should I call her?
Her first name
Or what? I am all confused.
She's in her 80s.

I'd go with Mrs xx until she invites you to call her something else

Ive always called Dh's grandparents and great aunts/uncles by what he calls them, so nanna/pop etc

I'd also call her Mrs xx until she asks you to call her something else.

Depends on how she is.
Mrs....is so formal, a d if she isn't that kind of lady she wouldn't find it necessary.
If she seems casual I'd call her by her fist name.

In my family it's always first name when someone new meets my grandparents. Maybe wait and see how you are introduced - if she introduces herself as nana or first name, use that.

Can DH offer any advice from his family experience?? What does he think she would expect/ like to be called?

I'd go with Mrs ___ until otherwise invited to do so too - I think it shows respect and good manners which are always big ticks in your favour
