Princess Charlotte is the boss around the palace

Australian Women's Weekly logo Australian Women's Weekly 15/1/2018 Bella Brennan

She might not be the direct heir to the throne but when it comes to family dynamics, The Queen has confessed her great-granddaughter Princess Charlotte, two, is very much in charge - and she especially loves to boss her four-year-old big brother Prince George around.

Her Majesty shared the hilarious revelation during an appearance at Sandringham House in Norfolk on Sunday, January 14th, as she presented a signed copy of the bible to a young schoolgirl called Emily Clay.

As the 91-year-old chatted to ten-year-old Emily, she asked if she "looked after" her younger sister Hadleigh.

To which the girls' mother explained: "It's the other way around."

The Queen then quipped: "It's like that with Charlotte and George."

"The Queen was implying that Charlotte keeps an eye out for George rather than the other way around. It is often the case that a younger child is more confident. It is second child syndrome," Emily's father added of the encounter.

Indeed, it's not the first time a member of the Royal Family has opened up about Charlotte's personality with Duchess Catherine remarking last year her daughter is "the one in charge."

Last week, the world was given a glimpse of Princess Charlotte's bubbly personality as she confidently posed on the steps of her Kensington Palace home before her first day at Willcocks Nursery School in London.

While a report from People revealed the tiny royal is as charming as she looks.

"She's very sweet and very confident - she's always chatting away," an insider told the publication.

"She is so polite, but also fun and energetic," the source adds.

What's more, Charlotte is honing in on another skill - speaking Spanish.

Thanks to her nanny Maria Turrion Borrallo, who is from Spain, the fourth in line to the British throne is speaking a little bit of the language.

Maybe she can try some commands in Spanish on George!
