Prince George may be third in line for the British throne ahead of Princess Charlotte, but his sister is in charge of things now. The youngest royal runs the show at home and even bosses her big brother around.
We recently learned all about who tells who what to do when it comes to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children. Here’s what was just revealed about the little royal and how she likes to be the little boss over George.
Princess Charlotte is ‘very confident’
Princess Charlotte is one confident child. In January 2018, she began Willcocks Nursery School and her confidence showed right away as she settled in just one day after arriving. A source told People that the toddler is “polite” and mannerly.
“She’s very sweet and very confident — she’s always chatting away,” said the source, adding that the princess is “so polite, but also fun and energetic” with “beautiful manners.”

The queen revealed Charlotte bosses George around
In addition to being confident, the princess also has a bossy streak. Queen Elizabeth II revealed as much about her great-granddaughter when talking to a 10-year-old named Emily, who won a bible signed by Her Majesty for a school religious education project.
According to the Eastern Daily Press, when the queen met the prize winner and her little sister, Hadleigh, she asked if Emily “looked after” her 6-year-old sibling. But the girls’ mother, Ellen said, “It’s the other way around.” To which Queen Elizabeth responded by saying, “It’s like that with Charlotte and George.”

Duchess Kate also admitted Charlotte is bossy
Someone else who admitted that the princess calls the shots is her own mother. In March 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge discussed her children with fellow mom Samantha Burge at an event unveiling a war memorial.
“She said that Charlotte is growing up really fast. She is the one in charge,” said Burge. “We have both got 2-year-olds and they are ruling the roost. It was a bit of a mummy chat.”

The princess always chases her brother during playtime
Charlotte not only bosses her brother around, but she also chases after George as well so playtime at the royal residence involves Charlotte running around after him.
“Charlotte loves to chase him around. They’re both very active children,” a source told Us Weekly. “They still like a bit of rough and tumble. She’s not afraid of a grazed knee and it’s most certainly not going to stop her from running around the corridors.”

Charlotte is ‘looking forward’ to having a younger sibling
Charlotte’s mother is pregnant with her third child, and the toddler is delighted that she is going to be a big sister. While we don’t know yet if the new baby will be a boy or girl, we do know that the princess loves playtime with George so she is really going to enjoy that with another sibling, and she’s already preparing.
A royal insider noted that Charlotte “plays baby with [dolls]. So I think she is probably expecting the new brother or sister will be the same game — but in real life.”

What toys the princess enjoys the most
The youngest member of the royal reportedly enjoys playing Disney princesses as she is still unaware of the status she was born into. And she also loves pretending to cook with her baking toys alongside her mother and the kitchen staff at Kensington Palace.
“Whenever the housekeeper or Kate are preparing food, Charlotte needs her own toy set by her side to imitate,” a palace insider revealed.

Charlotte and George are expected to be in Harry’s wedding
The confident princess and her brother have already been part of one wedding party. They had the roles of pageboy and a bridesmaid in their Aunt Pippa’s wedding in 2017, and on May 19, 2018, when their Uncle Harry gets married they’re expected to be part of his royal wedding.
Seeing the royal tots participate is something we are looking forward to, and perhaps they will steal the show again. We may even see some of Charlotte’s assertiveness when she takes on her big role.
