Kate Middleton Says Princess Charlotte Is The Boss; Toddler Has Meltdown In Front Of Queen Elizabeth II
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, recently shared an anecdote about what it's like to raise a toddler princess. She said her nearly 2-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte is the boss of the household.
The actual boss of the British Monarchy Queen Elizabeth II, on the other hand, had a toddler encounter at an event for soldiers. A 2-year-old boy had a meltdown right in front of the queen.
The Duchess and the Queen attended the opening of a new war memorial Thursday. Middleton was talking to mothers of soldiers when the subject of raising toddlers came up. She could happily relate to little kids ruling the roost.
"She said that Charlotte is growing up really fast. She is the one in charge," a soldiers' wife, Samantha Burge, said, according to Hello. The Duchess also revealed that while Princess Charlotte bosses everybody around, she and big brother Prince George, 3, have become "very good friends."
Burge was grateful for the chance to exchange mommy notes with Middleton. "I wanted a mommy talk," she said, according to People. "I wanted to talk about something else than [war]," she added.
Meanwhile, a toddler had a major meltdown as Queen Elizabeth II exchanged pleasantries with British soldiers in the same event. Alfie Lunn attended the memorial with his parents who both serve the military but he didn't seem to be impressed about meeting the Queen of England.
The little guy threw a tantrum right in front of Queen Elizabeth II instead of handing her a bunch of flowers, Telegraph reported. Lunn's mom said the Queen remained cordial and was "very understanding" of her little boy.
"She thanked us, she asked Mark when he last got back from tour, and thanked Alfie for the flowers," mom Corporal Michele Lunn said. Watch the toddler and the Queen in the video below.
