While speaking to Diana Award winners at a Kensington Palace tea on Tuesday, Prince William gave a rare insight into life at home.

Speaking with 14-year-old Olivia Hancock, who was being honored for advocating for gender equality in soccer, William revealed how he referees Prince George and Princess Charlotte's games.

Hancock later told Hello what the royal said. "So when I was chatting with Prince William he said to me, when he plays football with George and Charlotte, when Charlotte's in goal George says to her that 'Charlotte I'm better than you.'" William reportedly handles this by quickly telling his elder child, "'George, Charlotte could be as good as you.'"

The teenaged feminist was pleased to learn this. "It's great to hear that Prince William is saying that to George," she told the magazine.

Of course, it's to be expected that six-year-old George and four-year-old Charlotte have developed a small sibling rivalry—but reports indicate that the young royals are also close friends.

A source told People earlier this year that they've come to rely on one another. "They are close in age, and they spend so much time together," the source revealed. "Playdates [with outsiders] can be tricky, so they learn to lean on each other." The source added that Charlotte was quite excited to attend her brother's school (she started at Thomas's Battersea in September). "She can’t wait to be with George at big school," the source said. "She is so excited about it all."

Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton's youngest, one-and-a-half-year-old Prince Louis, is still a little too young to join his older siblings' soccer games in earnest—but it's only a matter of time until he's welcomed into the fold.
