Prince George & Princess Charlotte totally stole the show at Eugenie’s wedding

Princess Eugenie wedding

One thing I do envy about British royal weddings is that the kids always get a starring role, especially for the walk down the aisle and the arrival, but then the kids end up behaving themselves throughout the long-ass wedding. So it was with Princess Eugenie’s Windsor wedding – she asked every one of her royal-relative kids to be the pages and bridesmaids. Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge were there, as were Savannah Phillips, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor (who was special attendant to the bride), Mia Tindall and more.

Lady Louise got to wear a special dress made by Claudie Pierlot, while the rest of the kids wore outfits by Amaia Arrieta Kids. Allegedly, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex’s son James (Viscount Severn) was supposed to be a special attendant too, but I saw him enter the church with his parents and I didn’t see him at all during the wedding, but it’s possible that I missed him.

Anyway, the kids were totally adorable. It’s clear that Savannah and George are super-close, and their relationship probably mimics the friendship Zara Phillips always had with Harry and William. Plus, George got a day off from school. Charlotte too. They were so happy! And Charlotte is SO GOOD at royal-waving. It’s in her blood.

The wind knocked over some of the kids, poor babies.

    ahh adorable. Best part of the royal weddings!

    Cute little stinkers!

  3. W1hatever1 says:

    James escorted Fergie and Beatrice up the asile when they arrived at the church. I think that was his only ‘job’ in the ceremony.

  4. Des says:

    I really love that Savannah and George are such partners in crime.

    • Mumbles says:

      The happiest that I’ve seen George at these public events is when he’s with her. She cracks him up. She seems like a pistol.

  5. Loopy says:

    OMG that lady in blues dress blew up right at the top of the stairs. I mean they knew it was going to be windy but a lot of them didn’t bother putting weights in there dresses.

    • Milla says:

      Isn’t she like 13?

    • W1hatever1 says:

      That was 14-year-old Lady Louise Windsor (Eugenie’s cousin)…poor girl that has to be really embarrassing for her!

    • Sarah Joanne says:

      Loopy, nothing short of sewing five kilogram weights to a dress would have stopped it from blowing up. It’s incredibly stormy today. She’s a child and was hardly after attention. She must be mortified. Don’t be a jerk.

      • Danielle says:

        I was screaming at the TV “Please don’t let her skirt blow up!”. The poor girl. She was trying to hold it down but let go of it to help the little boy who fell down. I felt so bad for her.

      • Loopy says:

        Excuse me I didn’t even know it was a child,i felt mortified for her….you need to calm down.

    • Hannah Maguire says:

      You guys banging on about weights in dresses. It was a STORM!

    • PrincessK says:

      Why don’t women wear petticoats or underslips anymore? I do.

      • MissM says:

        Shes 13. I’m usually prepared for wind nowadays when I wear skirts and dresses but I certainly want when I was 13. Poor Louise, she probably wanted to crawl into a hole a die.

      • Lex says:

        Because it isn’t 1960?

  6. Becks1 says:

    The kids were so stinking cute!

  7. Jegede says:

    Princess Charlotte looks more and more like William.

    Adorable.

    Even when there’s chaos in the background Char hams it up with her waving. Adorable. :) )

    I’m not prone to sap, but considering how Princess Di loved stoking flames plus her filthy sense of humour, Charlotte’s paternal grandmother is probably smiling at her right now.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I think Charlotte looks so much like TQ now.

    • Jan90067 says:

      @Jegede, I agree! Every time I see Char now, all I see is a young William. It seems more and more apparent to me. Whatever you say about the parents, they make beautiful kids 😊

    • Natalie S says:

      I saw a side-by-side comparison on Instagram a while back and Charlotte and William looked nearly identical. Seeing how strongly William resembles Diana, Charlotte, while brunette, is unfortunately going to have some stuff to deal with when she’s older.

  8. minx says:

    Those two! They should rent them out for weddings, those little kids know the drill.

  9. SWP says:

    Could they be any cuter?? I’ve never been a fan of kids in weddings (I feel like they become the focus instead of the couple) but these are the cutest.!

  10. elvie says:

    The Charlotte side-eye is strong.

    George and Savannah definitely have a hilarious dynamic, just like at the trooping of the colour. Those kids play and mess about. It’s great.

  11. AnnaKist says:

    The images of these darlings, particularly of Charlotte waving, are enough to melt even my icy, cynical heart. Just beautiful. 😊

  12. notasugarhere says:

    They really didn’t steal the show, which was nice, because they were seen very little. The camera crew focused on Eugenie and Jack and didn’t waste a lot of time on members of the BRF, Philip vs. Fergie, or even the celebrity guests. Crew was good at focusing on the thing at hand (bridal couple, speaker, readers, performers) and not the guests or members of the wedding party.

  13. Lightpurple says:

    They’re adorable but nothing was going to steal the show from that tiara

    • notasugarhere says:

      That is one amazing piece isn’t it? The splendoristas over on Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor are in heaven.

  14. Skylark says:

    I’m only here for Charlotte and Mia.

  15. SJhere says:

    Those are some cute little kids, all dressed up they are adorable.
    I liked the fashion. The BRF do pomp very well. I think it’s their best quality. :)

  16. Amelie says:

    People had some great pics of Savannah Phillips imitating the trumpet players inside the church and making Prince George laugh. Then he seemed to notice the cameras and promptly covered his mouth with his hands. I love the friendship those two have, they are as thick as thieves.

    But yeah the kids were never going to steal the show from Eugenie. She looked radiant.

  17. Vava says:

    The kids are so cute. I think the ensembles would have looked better with solid colored sashes. The print isn’t classy like the rest of the costumes.

  18. Ladyb says:

    Sorry but I must be the only one who thinks Savannah Phillips is a right little madam who needs teaching how to behave at formal occasions.

    • homeslice says:

      I love her…I hope they don’t tamp down her spunk!! She is doing no harm, she is a little girl…from the looks of it, a happy one. These are the moments this family will look back fondly on.

      • MeghanNotMarkle says:

        Agreed. No need to beat the spirit out of children. They’re not causing a ruckus or distracting from the wedding. Leave them be.

    • A says:

      Children are the highlights at these types of events though. They’re the ones that create the family lore going forward by their antics. Look back on your own family and think about what you remember the most from them. It’s not the stodgy old adults, that’s for sure.

      • Nikki says:

        Actually, I was terribly sad at my mom’s funeral, but then my little nieces and nephews did something that still makes me smile decades later. They were excited by the limo, and asked my dad (their grandpa) if they could ride in it. After the graveyard ceremony, he let them all pile inside for a ride to the reception. At a red light, my sassy nephew rolled down the window, motioned to the car in the lane beside them, and shouted, “Got any Grey Poupon??” in a British accent, like a popular commercial at the time! Yes, kids live in the moment, so they can drag us out of the past or future, and let us appreciate our present. :)

      • PrincessK says:

        Yes, the kids cheered us all up at my Mum’s funeral. They complained that there were no cupcakes because they had watched funerals on TV where they always served cupcakes.

    • Natalie S says:

      Let the kids be kids. She’s not hurting anyone.

    • aang says:

      I like her spirit and she has a gorgeous head of hair.

    • Veronica S. says:

      lol, good luck with that. Some kids just have lots of personality to spare. As long as they aren’t hurting anybody or being seriously disruptive, it’s ususally fine. Adults should know better than to expect young children to have the same discipline and emotional control as they do, anyhow.

  19. TheOriginalMia says:

    Best wedding attire this season. They are so cute. All of them. Happy to see George happy and laughing with Savannah.

  20. homeslice says:

    I love all these kids! I’m glad they have each other, hope they remain good friends through their lives. Charlotte just kills me, I love that little girl!

  21. sunshine cookie says:

    charlotte gives me princess anne vibes. bit reserved and calm under pressure.

  22. A says:

    The children are all absolute fire crackers, haha. I’m glad George has a friend who can be trusted to put him at ease on public occasions. Savannah is a bit older and a little more carefree and I think she’s a good influence on George who’s otherwise kind of shy in front of crowds. Whoever thought to include the both of them deserves a thumbs up.

    Ahhh, Charlotte. My favorite almost-birthday twin. I love her, although I worry for her in equal measure growing up. I wonder how long it’ll be before people bring their claws out and start up with their criticism. Given the fact that she’s Kate’s only daughter, she likely doesn’t stand much of a chance I feel. :/ Ah well.

    Love all the littles, and special mention to Lady Louise-Windsor for doing a good job looking after all of them and wrangling them in spite of the wind. It’s not an easy job and there are a lot of them with their own little minds, and she kept it together in spite of everything. Good fo r her.

    Savannah is the naughty one..always larking around and making George laugh…so natural..love it xx
