Prince William and Kate Middleton weren't the only people that wept when Prince George went off to school for the first time -- George's sister Princess Charlotte cried, too! Apparently, the sight of her big brother (and partner in crime) leaving for the day upset the little princess so much that she just lost it. Aww. The sibling love is real between those two. 

  • While the world's heart was collectively melting over the sweet shots of George heading off to Thomas's Battersea, Charlotte was at home in tears.

  • As with all things toddler-related, though, Charlotte's feelings were brief and she's over it now.

    "Charlotte has gradually become used to him not being around in the day," the same source remarked. Sorry, George. You're old news. 

  • That said, George and Charlotte are still besties.

    The insider added, "There is a lot of banter between the two of them. I've heard George say, 'I'm the king of the castle,' and Charlotte replies, 'So am I!'"

  • It will be interesting to see how George and Charlotte's relationship changes once baby #3 enters the picture.

    But our money's on their being just as tight. We know if there's one thing Kate Middleton won't have, it's kids who don't get along with each other.
