Who runs the show in the royal nursery? Rhetorical question. We’ve known since at least the 2016 balloon arch incident that it’s Princess Charlotte, and Queen Elizabeth II has just provided additional corroboration. And who better to judge than England’s longest-reigning monarch?

People reported that the Queen was on her Sandringham estate for her annual presentation of a Bible to a local student who shone in a religious education project. Naturally there was some chit-chat:

Speaking to a 10-year-old school girl, Emily Clay, the Queen asked if she “looked after” her 6-year-old sister, Hadleigh. Mom Ellen replied, “It’s the other way around.”

The Queen, 91, quickly came back with, “It’s like that with Charlotte and George.”


Charlotte is 2, George is 4, their youngest sibling is due in April. Her tiny army grows stronger and stronger and soon she will unleash her havoc upon the world (or at least Kensington Palace).
