Prince George and Princess Charlotte are reportedly very close. Since they are just two years apart, the siblings reportedly enjoy hanging out and playing with each other.

In its July 5 issue, New Idea claimed that the royal siblings spend so much time together. And since they cannot have playdates with other kids due to the coronavirus pandemic, Prince George and Princess Charlotte learned how to lean on each other.

“Charlotte is just like George. They have a great bond. 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. She’s got one of his old scooters, and also a motorized Jeep she loves to drive around the patio in,” the source said.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte recently stepped out in public to join their dad on a half-marathon event on Father’s Day.

The youngsters helped their dad commence the half-marathon event at the queen’s Sandringham estate.

For the outing, Prince George and Princess Charlotte stepped out in matching attire.

Prince George wore a plaid polo shirt with matching navy-blue shorts. Princess Charlotte, on the other hand, wore a pink long-sleeved blouse with matching navy-blue shorts.

This is Princess Charlotte’s first outing where she wore shorts instead of her usual dress.

Days after the outing, Prince William celebrated his 39th birthday. And the entire royal family greeted him on his special day.

Meanwhile, Prince George and Princess Charlotte also made headlines this week after it was revealed that their dad wanted them to avoid a tricky pitfall that he experienced while he was growing up.

In the documentary Kate: Our Queen in Waiting, royal editor Emily Andrews said that Prince William and Prince Harry grew up very accessible to the press.

So, when the Duke of Cambridge had his own children, he made sure that they wouldn’t be accessible as him.

“So when [William] had his own children, he was absolutely adamant he was not going to allow anything like the level of that access to his family. The kind that had been allowed to him and Harry,” he said.

It is very rare for the public to see Prince William and Middleton’s children in public. In fact, they were usually only spotted on their way to church or when there are official royal gatherings.

But in the past year, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have become more visible to the public since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Megxit.
