Queen Elizabeth asked Emily if she “looked after” her younger sister.
When Emily's mom said, “It’s the other way around," Queen Elizabeth replied, "It's like that with Charlotte and George."
The remarks from Queen Elizabeth, Charlotte's and George's great-grandmother, are consistent with what Princess Kate has said about her two children's relationship. Last year, Kate said that Charlotte is "the one in charge."
Charlotte already enjoys ponies and is understood to have started riding lessons along with George, just like their father, Prince William, and uncle, Prince Harry, did when they were young.
On her family's tour of Germany and Poland last year, Charlotte proved she had already mastered her future role as fourth in line to the throne. She was seen curtsying and shaking the hand of her Polish and German hosts.
