Yesterday the royal family—minus the queen and Prince Philip, who had other commitments—turned up to celebrate the christening of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s youngest son, Prince Louis. And while it was certainly the royal baby’s special day, it was his three-year-old big sister, Princess Charlotte, who really stole the show.
Charlotte, the fourth in line to the throne behind her grandfather, dad, and brother Prince George, has already made the world collectively aww on more than one occasion with her penchant for waving at big events like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding or on the Buckingham Palace balcony during Trooping the Colour. She even gave a friendly hello to photographers gathered outside the hospital as she arrived to meet Prince Louis for the first time:

But yesterday, July 9, she wasn’t so keen on the reporters and photographers documenting her brother’s christening. As Princess Charlotte left the chapel with her parents, she was overheard telling them, “You’re not coming.” (The family was headed back home for a private tea with their guests.)

That’s some serious toddler sass—and we are here for it. We also love that sly smile that Prince William gives his daughter after her comments indicating this isn’t the first time Charlotte’s spoken her mind.
And who can blame her? It must be incredibly odd for a young child to have every public outing your family takes surrounded by a throng of people with cameras. Hell, it’s probably still pretty crazy for her Aunt Meghan too—and she’s 36. So just keep doing you, Charlotte. I think you’ll be just fine.
