The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge 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 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, four.

“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 tells 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.

Prince Charlotte poses with her new brother Prince Louis for his first portrait taken by mum Duchess Catherine.

But that hasn’t stopped the young royal from embracing the family’s sweet new addition! In fact, a royal insider claims she’s been stuck like glue to her new baby brother.

“Charlotte is really enjoying having a younger brother to play with,” a source recently told Us Weekly. “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 him. They have a great bond, and a similar connection is growing between Charlotte and Louis,” the source continued.

How sweet!

Prince Louis was born at 11:01am on Monday the 23rd of April, tipping the scales as the heaviest royal baby in 100 years weighing a very healthy 3.8-kilograms. He is fifth in line to the British throne.

Kensington Palace confirmed the Duchess was in labour at 08:23am in the morning, London time via Twitter in a statement which read: “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London earlier this morning in the early stages of labour.”

“The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”

A huge congratulations once again to William, Kate and the whole family on the safe arrival of the newest little prince!
