At just six and four years old, respectively, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have already proven to be quite a pair. As the two older children of Kate Middleton and Prince William (the third, one-year-old Prince Louis, will catch up soon), George and Charlotte share an extremely unusual childhood, and it seems to have strengthened their bond. "They are close in age, and they spend so much time together," a source recently told People. "Playdates [with outsiders] can be tricky, so they learn to lean on each other."

Here, 23 photos that show just how close these royal siblings are.
