Little is really known about what family life is like for the royals. However, at an event yesterday at Sandringham, the Queen provided an interesting insight into how her great-grandchildren behave.
Tasked with presenting a number of awards at the prize-giving ceremony, when the Queen presented ten-year-old Emily Clay with a bible for her religious studies project she asked whether she looked after her younger sister. The girl’s mother was quick to respond that is was ‘the other way round’, and the Queen remarked: ‘It's like that with Charlotte and George.’
‘The Queen was implying that Charlotte keeps an eye out for George rather than the other way around,’ Tony Clay, the child’s father, told the press.
The comments do not come as much of a surprise considering Princess Charlotte’s mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, shared similar sentiments last year when she declared the two-year-old was ‘the one in charge’.
2018 is set to be an exciting year for the youngest royal who started nursery at the beginning of January and will welcome a new sibling in April.
