Cape Town – Prince William doesn’t let Prince George bully Princess Charlotte.

While at a tea hosted by Kensington Palace, His Royal Highness spoke to 14-year-old Olivia Hancock who was awarded the Diana Award for promoting equality between the sexes, telling her he tries to do the same with his kids, reports HELLO! Magazine.

According to People, Olivia said Prince William explained, "'When George and Charlotte play football, George gets Charlotte to go in goal because he says he is better.' But Prince William says to him, 'Charlotte could be as good as you, George, so give her the same chances'.

"I think that was really good as it shows Prince William is standing up for equality as well," Olivia said. "He is doing something for women in sport."
