Queen Elizabeth Reveals How Princess Charlotte Treats Her Older Brother

It appears that Charlotte is more like her great-grandmother than we thought. As a woman who knows how to take the lead, she sure can see that quality in the 2-year-old princess.  

After starting preschool at Willcocoks Nursery School, close to her family's London home of Kensington Palace, earlier this month, it appears that Charlotte is settling in well.

A source close to the family said that Charlotte is confident and speaking some Spanish.

Charlotte is known not to be shy, and always chatting away, so it's no surprise how she and her brother get along.

Last weekend Queen Elizabeth II met with a 10-year-old school girl and revealed some telling information about the youngest royal.

The Queen rarely speaks about her great-grandchildren, but while chatting with a fellow mom, she couldn't help but open up about the youngest members of the royal family.

The 91-year-old monarch received Emily Clay, a 10-year-old school girl at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

Queen Elizabeth will remain at her country home in Norfolk, about 110 miles north of London, until early February. She usually stays until after Accession Day on February 6, which marks the anniversary of when she became Queen upon her father's passing in 1952.

Emily was the recipient of a Bible signed by the Queen for a school religious education project. Her father, Tom, had won the same prize in 1990.

When greeting the young girl, the Queen asked if she "looked after" her 6-year-old younger sister, Hadleigh. To which mom, Ellen, replied, "It's the other way around."

The Queen can relate to this sibling relationship ,and shared, "It's like that with Charlotte and George."

Their mother, Kate Middleton, has also joked about Charlotte's take-charge attitude over her big brother.

"Kate said that Charlotte is growing up really fast. She is the one in charge," according to Samantha Burge, the wife of Warrant Officer Class 2, Chris Burge. Kate also shared that the two were becoming "very good friends".

Prince George and Princess Charlotte's father, Prince William, has also shared this same feeling.

While touring the Urgent Care and Trauma Center at Aintree University in Liverpool back in October, he said, "George rules the roost and Charlotte isn't far behind."

This take-charge attitude will serve the young royal well, as she will have a younger sibling to look after in the spring. Kate Middleton is currently pregnant with the couple's third child and is due in April.
