Younger siblings are like, so embarrassing! Thank god for big sisters exist, right?
While riding in a carriage with her siblings—older brother Prince George, 8, and younger brother Prince Louis, 4—as well as her mom, the Duchess of Cambridge, and step-grandma, the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Charlotte showed that the work of a big sister is never done.
The fab five waved enthusiastically to the crowd of great-grandma’s biggest fans as they sped past at Trooping the Colour on Thursday, June 2. But Little Louis, wedged between his older siblings, appears to have gotten swept up in the commotion, waving excitedly even as the rest of the family gave their tired wrists a rest. Cue Princess Charlotte.
When she observed, out of the corner of her eye, Louis’s errant hand still shaking like his life depended on it, she calmly, gently, reached over and lowered it to his lap—all without so much as making eye contact with him.

Louis apparently didn’t get the memo, because his hand sprang up like a jack in the box just seconds later (rude!), but we have to commend Charlotte, 7, for her work nonetheless. We appreciate your service, sis.
The Trooping the Colour ceremony is just one of several events taking place this weekend as part of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, a.k.a. the celebration of her 70 consecutive years on the British throne. Today’s ceremony is actually an annual occurrence in celebration of the reigning monarch’s birthday (which is why it takes place in June, though the Queen’s real birthday is in April).
Though it’s unlikely that Princess Charlotte herself will ever ascend to the throne, we have confidence she would rule with grace, confidence, and an eye for keeping her embarrassing younger sibling in check. What more can you ask for?
