Princess Charlotte is taking after her late great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Tina Brown (author of The Diana Chronicles and The Palace Papers) appeared on the latest episode of Royally Obsessed, where she chatted with podcast co-hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie about how the queen’s death has impacted the royal family.

Brown admitted that if there’s one person who’s reminiscent of the late monarch, it’s Princess Charlotte. “To me, Princess Charlotte is a star. An absolute star,” she said in the episode. “She has queen written all over her.”

Princess Charlotte is third in line to the British throne after her dad, Prince William, and her older brother, Prince George. But according to Brown, anything is possible. “I don’t know what will happen,” she said. “Suppose George says, ‘You know what, I’m out. I want to be a tech billionaire.’ We have no idea what these kids are going to do. They’re going to have wills and minds of their own.”

While discussing the future of the monarchy, Brown joked that it’s only a matter of time before Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children—Prince George (10), Princess Charlotte (8) and Prince Louis (5)—steal the show. “Within about seven years, it’s all going to be about who Prince George is dating,” she said. “Let’s face it.”

Brown continued, “I’m looking forward to the George and Charlotte and Louis [era]. Harry will be the balding Uncle Harry. And William and Kate will be solid middle-aged people, and you’re going to have the swinging trio of these three very attractive kids.”

Brown also discussed the Prince and Princess of Wales and how they will likely support their children, no matter what they decide to do with their futures. “And unlike the preceding royals, I really do believe that William and Kate will say, ‘If you don't want to do it, you should not do it,’” Brown added. “I don’t think they’re going to force their kids into the royal way if they don’t want it.”

We can’t wait to see what the future holds for the Wales family.
