Prince George and Princess Charlotte Stole the Show at the Royal Wedding
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were adorable attendants at Pippa Middleton's 2017 wedding to husband James Matthews, and they just reprised those roles for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. The royal siblings served as page boy and bridesmaids, respectively, in the highly-anticipated bash and stole the show thanks to their picture-perfect attire and cute antics.
Charlotte was one of six bridesmaids at the wedding. Like the rest of the young girls, she wore a custom Givenchy dress (just like Aunt Meghan!) and a white flower crown. While the royal is only three, her involvement in the wedding party wasn't surprising. In the U.K., young children frequently join the bridal party, so it's totally normal that she filled the position. Meanwhile, four-year-old George reprised his role as page boy, which was also largely expected. He and his three other page boys all wore black.
Princess Charlotte and Prince George fulfilled their roles alongside several other important kids. Six-year-old Jasper Dyer, and seven-year-olds Brian and John Mulroney, the twin sons of Markle's best friend, Jessica Mulroney, were page boys. The other bridesmaids include Harry's two goddaughters, three-year-old Florence van Cutsem and two-year-old Zalie Warren, Markle's two goddaughters, six-year-old and seven-year-old Remi and Rylan Litt, and Mulroney's four-year-old daughter, Ivy.
While entering the ceremony, Charlotte turned around to wave to the crowds. Inside the chapel, George chatted with his fellow page boy the entire way down the aisle.
Even without the influence of tradition, it's no wonder the little royals had roles in the event. Their uncle Harry is known for his love of children. He's been very involved in George and Charlotte's childhood, and he was "delighted" with the arrival of brother William's third baby in April. He's also excited about starting a family of his own. After announcing his engagement, he expressed his interest in having kids with Markle "in the near future." With the amount of space in their new 21-room apartment, they'll have more than enough room to nest.
