We can't get enough of the sweet details the royal family has shared about Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate, William, Harry, Charles, and Queen Elizabeth have all contributed adorable stories and comments about the littlest members of their family. It's obvious that both George and Charlotte are growing up to have a big and vibrant personalities, and we look forward to being able to see them blossom into little royals. 

It's hard to get a lot of information out of the royal family, but luckily they have revealed some hilarious and sweet anecdotes about these very cute siblings. Life with little children is always interesting, and when you add royalty into the mix, it's pure gold. Prince George and Princess Charlotte have proved that they intend on living their lives as normal toddlers and young kids would -- and we are definitely for it. 

And now that Prince Louis was born, we can expect even more royal kid fun to come our way! He's still just a little infant, but his personalty is sure to shine through pretty soon -- and we hope the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decide to share it with us when it happens. 

We are so lucky to be able to witness (and hear about) some of the precious moments that the royal family has with these two little ones, and we know that once they get older, there will be plenty more. It's so much fun getting to know these kiddos, so keep reading for our favorite tidbits about George and Charlotte! 

  • Her Majesty's Armed Forces

    Harry has loads of great life advice for his niece and nephew. He first suggested Charlotte and George consider getting involved with the Armed Forces when they're older. "It's done no harm, just good, for me, and I know it's the same for William," said Harry. He also thinks they should make the most of their roles as princess and prince, adding, "If you’re going to be doing it and you’re having an effect on so many people then, if you smile, they’re smiling -- and what’s the point of doing such a unique job without enjoying it?"

    Like any doting father, Wills has adorable nicknames for his kids. In an interview with The Telegraph, Wills referred to George as "a little monkey," and Charlotte as "a little joy of heaven."

  • The Big Sleep

    Prince Charles revealed that Charlotte sleeps through the night -- unlike her big brother. According to their grandfather, little Charlotte is easier on their mum than Prince George was as a baby. We're beginning to see what William's "little monkey" nickname for George is all about!

    Kate recently shared an adorable story about George from their visit to London's Natural History Museum. The precocious 2-year-old was less interested in the dinosaurs than he was in a pigeon that made its way into the exhibit. According to Kate, the little prince is also a fan of ladybugs. We can't get enough of these adorable details about George!

  • Hey Pretty Baby

    From the moment Princess Charlotte was born, her uncle Harry couldn't resist fawning all over her. Harry described her as "absolutely beautiful." He had the perfect reaction to the news that he's now fifth in line for the throne after Charlotte's birth, simply stating, "Great." We have a feeling Harry will be spoiling his niece with attention on the regular.

    Harry isn't above cracking jokes about his adorable nephew. He once said about George, "He's growing up. He is walking, and he has big, chubby cheeks. He looks like a young Winston Churchill." Winston Churchill was one of the foremost leaders of the 20th century, so take it as a compliment, George!

    Queen Elizabeth is brimming with pride for the youngest members of her family. In her annual Christmas speech, she announced, "As so many of you will know, the arrival of a baby gives everyone the chance to contemplate the future, with renewed happiness and hope." Charlotte and George couldn’t have asked for a better role model than their inspiring great-grandmum!

    When George visited the zoo with his parents, he reportedly was a little too eager to interact with a cute bilby that was named after him. "He’s got quite a strong grab actually," Kate shared. Wills backed up her statement, stating, "If he gets it, he’ll never let go!" Good thing for Prince George the bilby, Prince George the baby's parents were around to keep their enthusiastic son in check.

  • Up All Night

    Back when George was still a wee babe, William opened up about some of the challenges of being a first-time parent. He admitted to experiencing a "few sleepless nights," but said that his family's "new addition [is] sleeping much better now." He also described his son as being "very good-looking" and "lovely." Of course Wills was more than willing to put up with those all-nighters for his kiddo.

    During his recent visit to Cambridge University, Wills reportedly chatted with a professor about George and Charlotte. According to Professor Christopher Dobson, "He said George is very lively and Charlotte is very ladylike." He added, "He said they were both delightful of course." The prince and princess sound like a real dynamic duo to us!

    This might be our favorite George story yet! Claudia Gordon, a luxury travel adviser who recently met Kate, shared a delightful anecdote about George. "... she [Kate] told me [Claudia] that his daddy, Prince William, was visiting China. After hearing this, Prince George went to the china cabinet, opened it, and proclaimed, 'Daddy is not here.'" It seems like George is growing up to be quite the comedian.

    Wills made the amusing confession that some parents have already tried to set up their daughters with Prince George. Wills boasted, "There have been a few babies touted to us." It sounds like George is well on his way to becoming a little heartbreaker. 

  • Baby Phat

    When George was still a tiny bundle of joy, Kate was quoted as saying, "He's been changing so much while we've been away," and then adding, "he grew an extra fat roll." It's funny comments like these that George can look back on as a teenager and feel totally embarrassed by. 

  • Rounding Up

    Apparently George has taken to fibbing about his age. When an outgoing toddler introduced himself to Kate and claimed that he was 3, his mother told her that he was really only 2. Kate replied that George claims to be older, too. We can relate, George. When you have an old soul, numbers seem so trivial.

  • Little Book Worms

    While awarding the Order of the Champion to well-renowned British author Lady Antonia Fraser, Prince William let it sleep that his two oldest kids are "always reading." We just love the image of little Princess Charlotte and Prince George sitting down to enjoy a good book. 

    And we also know that the royal library must be extensive -- so these little ones have a lot to choose from!
