Being in lockdown mode with a house full of kids isn’t easy — even if you happen to be a member of the royal family. On top of all the frustrations that comes with just constantly being in one another’s space, one of Prince William and Kate’s little ones apparently likes to get a bit mischievous.
It all comes down to a sense of adventure, it seems. “Charlotte is the braver of the two older kids and always willing to try anything while George is more reticent,” royal biographer Ingrid Seward told Express in the UK. She doesn’t elaborate on exactly what sort of trouble the young princess likes to get into, but we can imagine it’s the same sort of childish fun and games we’ve all seen even without growing up inside palace walls. And we just love that Charlotte is the ringleader of her brothers, George and Louis!
We also can’t say we’re too surprised. Remember the time she stuck her tongue out at crowds instead of waving to them? And more recently, Charlotte showed off sneaky grin in the photos mom Kate shared for her birthday recently:
Even when she isn’t getting into any shenanigans, Charlotte has made her older brother jealous while hunkered down just by doing her homework. “George gets very upset because he just wants to do all of Charlotte’s projects,” Kate recently shared. “Like, making sort of spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work.”
It’s not all mischief and jealousy for the adorable royal family, though. “They don’t have much free time as both Kate and William are working hard online, but when they do, they go for bike rides across the private parts of the Sandringham estate,” Seward explained. “When they are able to, which they now can, they take the kids to the local beach and play in the rock pools —this suits all three children.”
They might have tiaras, thrones, and palaces, but it’s stories like these that remind us how much the royals really are just a normal family like our own!
