The 91-year-old Queen has revealed a tidbit about her great-grandchildren.


As reported by People, Queen Elizabeth said that Princess Charlotte, 2, bosses around her older brother, Prince George, 4.

In January 2018, Queen Elizabeth made the remark at Sandringham House in Norfolk as she was presenting a bible to Emily Clay, 10.

The Queen asked Emily if she “looked after” her younger sister, Hadleigh. Then the girl's mother, Ellen Clay, replied that it was "the other way around."

The 38-year-old mother's answer prompted Queen Elizabeth to say: "It's like that with Charlotte and George."


According to ABC News, the Queen's description of Charlotte echoed a remark by Kate Middleton. In March 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge said that her only daughter was the "one in charge."

Charlotte, who enjoys ponies, began riding lessons along with her big brother. Prince William and Prince Harry also did when they were young.

During their family's tour in Germany and Poland in 2017, Charlotte, the fourth in line to the throne, showed signs that she's ready for her future role. She was spotted curtsying and shaking the hand of her Polish and German hosts, ABC News reported.


Recently, Charlotte began attending Willcocks Nursery School in London, a preschool located at the Holy Trinity Church.

The young royal was photographed by her mother before she left for her first day at nursery school. She wore a pink backpack and red coat.


In September 2017, George joined St. Thomas's Battersea School. He previously attended Westacre, a local Montessori school.

Charlotte and George will soon welcome their new sibling. William and Kate are expecting their third royal child this month, April 2018.

The royal family has kept Kate's third pregnancy mostly in the dark. There has been no word about what the gender of the baby is or the baby's name.

The secretiveness even led to speculations that Kate and Prince William may be surprising the world with twins.
