Princess Charlotte declared herself in charge of the bridesmaids and pageboys at the wedding of her aunt and uncle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, last weekend according to a wedding guest who saw her in action.
“She was really sweet,” the unnamed guest told People magazine. “There was one girl who wanted to go and she said, ‘No you can’t go yet. We have to wait until we are asked.’ She was really organized!”
Princess Charlotte was one of the younger members of the bridal party – she was joined by Ivy Mulroney, Remi and Rylan Litt, Florence van Cutsem and Zalie Warren – though she took charge straight away with the help of Nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borallo.
“I was sitting right in front of [Maria] and she was bribing the youngest bridesmaid with Peppa Pig and Smarties,” the guest said. “[It] was quite funny.”
This isn’t the first time Princess Charlotte has made headlines for her leadership. At a war memorial unveiling last fall, her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, told a guest that Charlotte was growing up fast and that “She is the one in charge.”
The Queen as well, has said that Princess Charlotte likes to look after her older brother, Prince George.
Earlier this year at an event at Sandringham House, the Queen asked a youngster if she looked after her little sister, prompting the girl’s mother to say that it was the other way around.
“It is often the case that a younger child is more confident. It is second child syndrome,” the girl’s mother said at the time.
Princess Charlotte appeared to have a great time at the royal wedding – she waved enthusiastically to her aunt and uncle as they departed St. George’s Chapel, and the guest told People that she “looked very happy to be there.”
