Princess Charlotte is growing up with a healthy dose of confidence. The self-assured young royal reportedly took charge of the royal wedding party on Saturday, keeping everyone in line and on task.

"She was really sweet," one guest told People. "There was one girl who wanted to go and she said, ‘No you can’t go yet. We have to wait until we are asked.’ She was really organized!"

This isn't the first time Charlotte has proved to be assertive. In October of last year, her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that Charlotte is the boss of the household when speaking with a group of servicemen and women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and their partners. 

Samantha Burge, wife of Warrant Officer Class 2 Chris Burge, spoke with Kate in what she called a "mummy chat."

"She said that Charlotte is growing up really fast. She is the one in charge," Burge said, relaying their conversation to People.

"We have both got 2-year-olds and they are ruling the roost." 

The same royal wedding guest also shared that Nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo was bribing Prince Harry's goddaughter Zalie Warren with candy and Peppa Pig throughout the ceremony.

"I was sitting right in front of [Maria] and she was bribing the youngest bridesmaid with Peppa Pig sweets and Smarties...which was quite funny."

Apparently, that was the tactic used for all of the bridesmaids and page boys. Official royal wedding photographer Alexi Lubomirski revealed that's also how he got the kiddos to smile for the official wedding portraits.

"They were being bribed with one Smartie here, one Smartie there, so as soon as the kids came onto the set, I immediately just shouted out 'Who likes Smarties?' and then everybody, hands up, smiles, even some adults put their hands up," Lubomirski revealed in an interview with Reuters.

"Some parents were trying to wrangle their children, other uncles and aunts were talking to their nephews and nieces. It was a family, that was essentially what it is."
