Sibling rivalries appear to happen in all sorts of families, including royal ones. Kate Middleton and her three little ones — 6-year-old George, 5-year-old Charlotte, and 2-year-old Louis — recently helped plant flowers at The Nook, a garden at the East Anglia's Children's Hospices location in Norfolk, England. As it turns out, the earnest outdoor activity ended up sparking a bit of competition among her boys.

"The children are really enjoying growing their sunflowers," the Duchess of Cambridge said at the time, according to People. She added, "Louis' is winning, so George is a little grumpy about that!" The funny admission comes shortly after Kate joked in a This Morning interview that George was jealous of Charlotte's more fun schoolwork. "Making spider sandwiches is far cooler than doing literacy work," Kate said.

On the topic of schoolwork, The Sunday Times recently reported that George and Charlotte would likely not be returning to their school, Thomas's Battersea, anytime soon in an effort to exercise the utmost caution amid the ongoing pandemic. Instead, it seems the two will continue to stay home and learn remotely from their country home, Anmer Hall.
