Royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton may have only just welcomed their third child and second son into the world, but there’s already one member of the family that’s feeling his arrival in a big way. You see, Princess Charlotte — who turned three years old earlier this month — is beginning to experience some of the woes of being a middle child. As it turns out, the little princess reportedly receives a lot of hand-me-downs from her older brother, Prince George, 4.
“A lot of Charlotte’s toys are hand-me-downs from George. Although she’s definitely a girly girl, she also loves to play outside, just like George,” a royal insider told Us Weekly. “She’s got one of his old scooters and also motorized Jeep she loves to drive around the patio in.”

But that’s not the only thing the royal siblings share! In Prince Louis’ first official photos, royal fans pointed out that Charlotte is wearing George’s hand-me-down blue sweater by Spanish label Fina Ejerique.The last time we saw George in the navy knit was in 2016, when he posed alongside Queen Elizabeth and her great-grandchildren and youngest grandchildren for her special edition 90th birthday portrait by photographer Annie Leibovitz in 2016.
But all these hand-me-downs hasn’t stopped Charlotte from embracing the royal family’s sweet new addition. In fact, a royal insider claimed that she’s been stuck like glue to her new baby brother. “Charlotte is really enjoying having a younger brother to play with,” the source revealed. “She’s taking her big sister duties very seriously. She won’t leave baby Louis’ side.”
She’s apparently taking sibling cues from her older brother, with whom she also shares a close relationship. “Charlotte is just like [George]. They have a great bond, and a similar connection is growing between Charlotte and Louis,” the source continued. How sweet!
Prince Louis was born on Monday, April 23, tipping the scales as the heaviest royal baby in 100 years weighing a very healthy 8.3 pounds. He is fifth in line to the British throne. A huge congratulations once again to William, Kate, and the whole family on their adorable new little prince!
