On September 9, 2015, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning British monarch of all time. In early 2017, she became the only monarch in history to celebrate 65 years on the throne, a Sapphire Jubilee.
While The Queen has been known for decades as the British ruler, she is now revealing that there is someone else that holds power in the royal family: her great-granddaughter, 2-year-old Princess Charlotte.
According to TODAY, The Queen was talking about the power balances at play within the royal family on Sunday. She was in Norfolk, England, presenting a Bible to a 10-year-old who had won a contest for "best religious studies project" at a local school when the conversation started.
The 91-year-old asked the young girl if she "looked after" her younger sister. The student's mother quickly chimed in and said, "It's the other way around."
The Queen responded, "It's like that with Charlotte and George." She talked about how the young princess is constantly looking after her big brother.
The student's father noted the typical sibling dynamics that Queen Elizabeth was talking about.
He said, "It is often the case that a younger child is more confident. It is second child syndrome."
It seems as though no one in the royal family is ignorant to the fact that Charlotte sits on the throne. Duchess Kate had previously told a fellow mom that Charlotte is the "one in charge" at home.
Last fall, Prince William jokingly said that the toddler is "going to be trouble when she gets older."
While Princess Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne, she clearly holds the power in her household. This spring, she will become a big sister and yield even more power!
The royal family has a lot of exciting things coming up with William and Kate expecting their third child and Prince Harry marrying Meghan Markle. Congrats to the Royals on an exciting 2018! In other recent news, 4 officers were shot in an open fire, please be praying for everyone involved.
