Prince George and Princess Charlotte are regular pros at the royal wedding game by now, even though they’re just 5 and 3, respectively.

The pair, once again, served as a page boy and a junior bridesmaid in Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday, October 12, returning to a familiar venue, St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, for their latest wedding party stint. Princess Charlotte adorably waved as the car pulled up to the chapel Friday morning.

Prior to the second royal wedding of the year, George and Charlotte had already served in multiple junior bridal parties. Below, The Knot rounds up all the other times the brother-sister duo have captivated the spotlight at nuptials over the years.

Sophie Carter and Robert Snuggs

The youngest members of the royal family once again took part in a wedding last month as a page boy and junior bridesmaid for Sophie Carter, a good friend of the Duchess of Cambridge (and godmother to Charlotte).

George looked dapper in a white-and-blue linen pageboy outfit, complete with white tights and matching shoes. In photos released from the wedding, George can be seen grinning and making faces with the rest of the pageboys as they line up and wait for their cue to enter the venue.

Charlotte, meanwhile, wore a simple white dress for her role, with a blue pouch in one hand and a bouquet in the other. She wore her long hair down with a flower wreath perched on top of her head to compliment her outfit.In several photos taken of little Charlotte, she can be seen grabbing onto her mother’s arm or being carried for formal photos.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews

In May 2017, George and Charlotte got all gussied up for their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews, which was held at St. Mark’s in Berkshire. George donned an adorable white dress shirt tucked into tan knee-length shorts for the occasion, while Charlotte, as a bridesmaid, donned a simple white dress with a blush-colored sash and short sleeves, with a flower crown to boot.

Prior to the wedding the Duchess of Cambridge expressed to a fellow Buckingham Palace garden party attendee that she was a little nervous about how her little ones would hold up during the wedding. “She said that they were all really looking forward to her sister’s wedding at the weekend, but she was a bit worried about how her children might behave,” the attendee Andrew Bates told reporters at the time. “She said she was hopeful that they would be good but you never know at that age.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Then, earlier this year, George and Charlotte stole the show as members of the wedding party for their uncle Prince Harry and new aunt Meghan Markle’s much-anticipated wedding in May. Prince George wore a dapper black outfit for the big day, while Princess Charlotte donned a little white dress fit for a princess. (Charlotte also, memorably, gave a charming wave to the crowd as she made her way down the aisle, while usually playful George was a lot more stoic for the occasion.)

Other bridesmaids who were represented at Harry and Markle’s nuptials included Florence van Cutsem (3, Harry’s goddaughter); Remi Litt (6, Markle’s goddaughter); Rylan Litt (7, Markle’s goddaughter); Ivy Mulroney (4); and Zalie Warren (2, Harry’s goddaughter). The pageboys who joined George were Jasper Dyer (6, Harry’s godson); Brian Mulroney (7); and John Mulroney (7).

The official portraits taken by Alexi Lubomirski, however, showed Prince George with an exceptionally wide grin while posing alongside his uncle Harry and new aunt Meghan. The smiling tactic was simple from Lubomirski’s end: he simply bribed the kids with candy.

“They were being bribed with one Smartie here, one Smartie there,” Lubomirski revealed in a subsequent interview. “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.”
