Princess Charlotte may only be 2, but the youngest member of the royal family is apparently one of the most self-assured! Queen Elizabeth, was speaking with a 10-year-old school girl named Emily Clay at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk over the weekend and ended up dishing on her great-granddaughter. Clay had won a bible signed by the Queen for a school religious education project.
The Queen reportedly asked Clay if she "looked after" her 6-year-old sister Hadleigh. The girls' mother Ellen chimed in and shared, “It’s the other way around.” The 91-year-old monarch's response? “It’s like that with Charlotte and George.”
This adorable insight comes on the heels of a report from last week, in which a source told People that Charlotte is settling in nicely to her preschool education. “She’s very sweet and very confident — she’s always chatting away," the insider said, adding that the princess, who turns 3 in May, “is so polite, but also fun and energetic. She has beautiful manners.” What's more, she's already speaking some Spanish, thanks to her nanny Maria Turrion Borrallo, who is from Spain.
Sounds like Princess Charlotte is more than ready to become a big sister to Prince William and Duchess Catherine's third child, due this spring. Given that Charlotte is the one who looks after her big brother, royal watchers are sure to get a kick out of the developing dynamics among the Cambridge siblings.
