The royal siblings made an adorable appearance at the hospital yesterday when they arrived to meet their new baby brother. (I mean, Charlotte's little wave was everything.) But four-year-old George appeared to pull off some classic big brother shenanigans on his two-year-old sister just after they entered the Lindo Wing doors.
Eagle-eyed Twitter user Gabrielle Catlow pointed out part of the footage of the royal tots' arrival, where George appears to flick the back of Charlotte's head just before the doors closed behind them.
The move is super-brief and hard to catch, but if you look closely, it really does look like the big bro takes a light hit at his sister's noggin. Was it payback for Charlotte's stealing the show with her precious waving? Who knows. Perhaps he just did it for no reason. (Anyone who grew up with a sibling can relate.)
Other watchers, including royal commentators Omid Scobie and Victoria Arbiter, also noticed the "blink-and-you’ll miss it" gesture.
Favourite thing today was this blink-and-you’ll miss it moment inside the hospital where George appears to flick Charlotte’s head! Typical older brother😂 pic.twitter.com/LA0qdBaYah- Omid Scobie (@scobie) April 23, 2018
Yes. It is exactly that, I confirm the technique as the eldest of three. Keep it real, George. pic.twitter.com/SsNclLFW1L- Heather DeLand (@HeatherDeLand) April 23, 2018
OMG so funny, he definitely does 😂- emilydaisy (@emilydaisy) April 23, 2018
Did he flick his sister’s head at 0:30? Tonto nga George ya. 😆 pic.twitter.com/mslMuDfcqK- Maris (@mrc1230) April 24, 2018
Other viewers, however, thought George was trying to put his arm around Charlotte instead.
Looks like a bit of a cuddle to me...- Cali Lady 🌴☀️ (@CaliMum2016) April 23, 2018
It can be both things.. sometimes I see a flick, sometimes I see a cuddle. I guess I will never decide this 😂🙈- The Cambridges (@loveforcambridg) April 23, 2018
Either way, we're obsessed with these two.
According to proud father Prince William, the royal siblings were "very excited" to welcome a new addition to the family. The pair, who arrived to the hospital hours after the baby was born, were "with the baby for 25 minutes" before heading home to Kensington Palace, a source told Us Weekly. "It’s unlikely they’ll be asleep when William and Kate arrive home. They’ll be up all night, excited about their new brother," the insider added.
We can't wait to see all three royal kiddos together for the first time.
