The Queen was chatting with a mom and daughter and offered some eyebrow-raisingly adorable insight on the littlest monarch.
Queen Elizabeth Revealed Princess Charlotte Is More Like a Big Sister to Prince George
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.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning. The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School.
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.
