Her mother, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, recently revealed details about her daughter to a fellow mom during an unveiling Thursday of a war memorial.

“We have both got 2-year-olds and they are ruling the roost,” Burge told People magazine. Burge has two daughters who are very similar in ages to Charlotte, who turns 2 on May 2, and her 3-year-old big brother, Prince George.
