Queen Elizabeth says Princess Charlotte bosses her old brother Prince George around.

The British monarch let slip that the two-year-old royal very much runs the the Cambridge household, and likes to show her four-year-old sibling who is in charge at the home they share with their parents - Prince William and Duchess Catherine - whilst attending to duties at Sandringham House on Sunday.

Elizabeth, 91, was talking to 10-year-old Emily Clay, who she rewarded a signed copy of the bible for her hard work at school in religious studies.

The Eastern Daily Press reports that the young girl said she “looked after” her younger sister Hadleigh and their mother Ellen laughed: “It’s the other way around."

The queen then smiled: “It’s like that with Charlotte and George.”

It comes after a source recently revealed that the toddler is "polite, but also fun and energetic", and loves to engage in conversation with people.

A source said: "She's very sweet and very confident - she's always chatting away. She has beautiful manners."

Charlotte was all smiles as she attended her first day of nursery a couple of weeks ago at Willcocks Nursery School in London, which her parents - who are currently expecting their third child - are said to have hand-picked because it will be an "ideal first step" in her education.

A source claimed: "They chose that nursery because they thought it would be an ideal first step for Charlotte's education, and they were impressed by the team who work there."

Catherine took pictures of Charlotte ahead of her first day and they were posted on the Kensington Palace official Twitter account.

The images were captioned: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning.

"The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School."
