SHE may only be eight, but Princess Charlotte knows exactly how to keep her brothers in line.
Eagle-eyed royal fans spotted the confident daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales has a cute four-word order to keep Prince George, nine, in check.
According to lip readers, Charlotte told her brother he needed to bow when the Queen’s coffin came past

The command was spotted as Charlotte was joined by her brother as they bid farewell to their great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II at her funeral in London last September.
After the state funeral, the children joined their parents at Wellington Arch to watch as the Queen’s coffin was transferred to the State Hearse ahead of being driven to Windsor.
And as Charlotte stood next to her brother, she was seen mouthing something to him, with lip readers decoding it as “you need to bow”.
It seemed as though Charlotte was reminding her brother of royal protocol, and informed him that he needed to bow as the coffin was driven past.
Upon being told of his duty by his younger sister, George – who looked smart in a navy blue suit – nodded.
Video of the sweet moment was shared on social media, with many people quick to comment on Charlotte’s demeanour.
“She is definitely in charge… an excellent example,” one wrote.
While another added: “Charlotte is George’s biggest fan and greatest conscience at the same time.”
“She is unreal for her age. Raise a Charlotte!” a third wrote.
Others praised George and Charlotte for their impeccable behaviour throughout the funeral.
“How beautiful are these kids. So proud of them,” one wrote.
“They did so well bless them,” another added.
William and Kate made the decision not to bring Prince Louis – who was four at the time – to the funeral because of his young age.
George and Charlotte were the youngest mourners at the funeral.
The pair clearly share a strong bond, and were seen chatting at various points during the day
