Prince George may be the eldest out of the three Wales Children and will one day be crowned King but according to the late Queen, it's his little sister Princess Charlotte who's the real boss.

Charlotte, who celebrates her ninth birthday today, is a confident and self-assured little girl who is not afraid to show it when it comes to her two brothers.

Her strong personality is something that has been clear from an early age to those closest to her as her late great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II previously remarked on the princess' protective nature back in January 2018 when Charlotte was just two-years-old and her older brother George was four.

Her Majesty was presenting a book to a ten-year-old school student named Emily Clay when she asked the school girl if she looks after her young sister, according to Town & Country.

Emily's mother replied: "It's the other way around," to which the late monarch chimed in: "It's like that with Charlotte and George".

Charlotte is known to look after her brothers while they are on royal engagements and has even been seen making sure they are following royal protocol, the Mirror reports.

The nine-year-old is especially protective of her younger brother, little Prince Louis.

In a photo released by William and Kate for their daughter's third birthday back in 2018, Charlotte was seen cradling baby Louis in her lip as she planted an adorable kiss on his forehead.

The young princess also doted on her baby brother during his 2018 christening which is evident in snaps.

While everyone else is beaming at the camera, proud big sister Charlotte is focused only on her younger brother as she adoringly looks at him and holds his hand protectively.

And it's clear that Louis looks up to his big sister as Prince William revealed back in 2021 that his kids love to play music in the morning and dance around.

He proudly said: "Charlotte, particularly, is running around the kitchen in her dresses and ballet stuff and everything.

"She goes completely crazy with Louis following her around trying to do the same thing."

Their sweet bond was publicly displayed during their grandfather, King Charles III's Coronation in May last year.

Charlotte and Louis held hands as they processed down the Abbey, where they sat side by side in the front row.

The pair arrived without their elder brother George, 10, who was a Page of Honour for the King on his big day.

The young royals were immaculately behaved during the service, with Charlotte proving to be a reassuring figure for her lively younger brother, who was seen stifling a few yawns during the historic ceremony.

Charlotte is often seen taking a leading role over her siblings and her self-confidence will only continue to grow thanks to the strong female role models she has in her life, according to an expert.

Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond told OK: "Charlotte strikes me as quite a confident young lady but, with two brothers, she will no doubt be looking to her mother and other women in the family as role models - from her great-grandmother the Queen to her own mum.

"All three children have a claim to think of themselves as pretty special to their parents: George because he is the heir, Charlotte because she's the only girl, and Louis because he's the youngest.

"Charlotte is reaching the age when she can really appreciate her mother's sense of style and they can share 'girlie' moments together. Catherine also provides the perfect role model for how to behave as a senior member of the Royal Family."
