Duchess Kate said her daughter, Princess Charlotte, "is the one in charge," according to another mom who spoke with the royal.

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.

“She said that Charlotte is growing up really fast. She is the one in charge,” said Samantha Burge, wife of a Royal Marine commando.

“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.
