Princess Charlotte rules the roost at Kate Middleton and Prince William’s family home and looks after her big brother Prince George, The Queen revealed.
The revelation was made by the proud great grandmother, 91, in Sandringham as she presented a bible to a youngster who attends a primary school on her Norfolk estate.
‘She asked if Emily looked after Hadleigh and I said it was more the other way round. She said it was like that with Princess Charlotte and Prince George,’ the student’s mum told the Daily Mail.
Emily’s father backed up the comments, even offering insight into the reason why this might be the case.
‘The Queen was implying that Charlotte keeps an eye out for George rather than the other way around,’ he said.
‘It is often the case that a younger child is more confident. It is second child syndrome.’
Emily, 10, is a pupil at Dersingham Primary School and was awarded the accolade after turning in an exceptional religious studies project. Her father won the award in 1990.
Princess Charlotte, who turns three on 2 May, officially started her own journey through the education system earlier this month when she enjoyed her first day at school.
Kate and Wills’ little girl is enrolled at Willcocks Nursery School in London and an adorable set of pictures were released to mark the occasion.
In the snaps taken by Kate, 36, Charlotte is seen sporting a smart read coat accessorised with a pastel pink scarf.
The younger sister of Prince George, 4, wears her shoulder-length brown hair in a neat style complete with a burgundy ribbon.
