Princess Charlotte's hilariously sassy remark when she became a big sister

Princess Charlotte sassy - Prince Louis' christening 2018

Princess Charlotte made a seriously cheeky comment when she first became a big sister to Prince Louis back in 2018. 

As photographers gathered outside Chapel Royal at St James's Palace where Prince Louis was baptised surrounded by members of the royal family, including his siblings, mother and father, grandfather, Prince Charles and step-grandmother, Queen Camilla.

Even Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were in attendance, having recently tied the knot in May 2018.

As Princess Charlotte was led into the chapel, hand in hand with Prince William, she cheekily told the surrounding paparazzi that they weren't welcome in the service.

"You're not coming," she told them, with a little frown on her face.

Prince William could be seen flashing a smirk as he heard his little girl's amusing comment.

Princess Charlotte is known to be the boldest and most confident of the three children.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl once told Entertainment Tonight, “She loves climbing trees and she’s very much an adventurer, she is quite known for her feisty personality.”

Meanwhile, Prince William once recalled the wonderful response Charlotte had to being asked her age after turning six.

When asked about how she enjoyed her sixth birthday in May 2021, William said, "She had a lovely day, thank you. Last year it was her birthday in lockdown but this year we were able to have one other family over. They grow up very fast. It was great fun.

“If you ask her, she says she’s 16… Charlotte says, ‘I’m six now, I’ll do what I want’.”
