Even though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are ostensibly the stars of the royal wedding, two pint-sized members of the royal family who completely stole the show on Saturday, May 19: Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Four days before the nuptials, Kensington Palace confirmed that the young royals would have key roles in the wedding processions, as a page boy and bridesmaid, respectively. And the brother-sister duo definitely delivered! Prince George wore a dapper tux for the big day, while Princess Charlotte donned a little white dress fit for a princess.
Charlotte gave a charming wave to the crowd as she made her way down the aisle, while Prince George kept a more stoic expression on his face.
Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, previously served as pageboy and bridesmaid at their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding to hedge fund manager James Matthews last May. It should be noted that British royal weddings rarely feature adults in these traditional bridal parties.
Other bridesmaids who were represented at Saturday’s nuptials include 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 Jasper Dyer were Jasper Dyer (6, Harry’s godson); Brian Mulroney (7); and John Mulroney (7).
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s youngest child, baby Louis was not in attendance. According to the Palace in the weeks leading up to the wedding, he was “too young” to make an appearance, which is fair, considering that he was born on April 23.
