Kate Middleton and Prince William share anniversary video

Charlotte, who turns six on Sunday, is known to be the more confident, self-assured and cheeky of the three royal children. This is in contrast to George in particular, who is more reserved and gentle. In the heartwarming video of the family, which was filmed in the autumn, the children can be seen playing together on the beach in Norfolk.

Eagle-eyed viewers noticed that Charlotte’s shirt is untucked, with the corners peeking out from under her jumper, whereas both her brothers’ shirts are neatly tucked in.

Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.

Ms Gripper was among those who noticed Charlotte’s shirt sticking out from under her jumper.

She said: “The other thing that I spotted ‒ I mean, we’re all big fans of Princess Charlotte I think it’s fair to say, her birthday is coming up this weekend as well, so fingers crossed, maybe more pictures.

“But she was running around, she’s got her little sweater on but her shirt tails were peaking out at the bottom of it ‒ she was firmly shirt tucked out, whereas George and Louis, their shirts were neatly under their jumpers all of the time.

“So, another reason why I love Princess Charlotte a little bit more today.”

Mr Myers was excited about the prospect of yet another picture from the Cambridges, saying: “Come on! We’re just being spoiled!”

This is not the first time William and Kate’s daughter has shown her rebellious side.

In a video of the Cambridge children playing in 2019, Charlotte appeared to be the boss, telling her older brother George to go “quicker” as the pair climbed on some rocks by a brook.

When asked by William whether she would help George with something, the young royal simply said: “No!”

Even further back, at the christening of Prince Louis in 2018, Charlotte apparently told photographers: “You’re not coming!”

At the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, at which she was a flower girl ‒ and at the centre of the famous Meghan-Kate crying incident ‒ she channelled her uncle in sticking out her tongue during the celebrations.

George and Charlotte’s dynamic eerily mirrors Prince William and Prince Harry’s when they were young boys.

In the 2013 Amazon Prime documentary ‘Royalty Close Up: The Photography of Kent Gavin’, royal photographer Kent Gavin himself recalled how William was a quieter, more sensitive boy than Harry.

He said: “It was a difficult time when they were very young.

“I can recall that William was not happy ‒ Harry, not a care in the world, he was just happy-go-lucky.

“But William had his head down, much like his mother did in the early days.”

He recalled that Harry did not seem bothered by cameras when he was younger, much like Charlotte seems to be more confident in front of the lens than her brother.

It is unclear whether this mirroring of personalities is a coincidence or due to each royal’s place within the family.

Both William and George are destined to be King one day and the burden of that responsibility may affect how they behave.

Meanwhile, Harry and Charlotte ‒ as the ‘spares’ ‒ are more free to behave how they please.

On the other hand, it has been argued that the role of the spare can be more difficult in that the role is undefined and the heir is often prioritised over them.

Robert Lacey, author of ‘Battle of Brothers’, argued that Harry followed in the tradition of other ‘spares’ like Princess Margaret and Prince Andrew who were “treated harshly by the royal system that favours the main bloodline”.

If this analysis is correct, it is possible Princess Charlotte’s future could be challenging too.
