Move over Harry and Meghan, now your day is done and dusted, it’s time to focus on the next royal wedding of 2018.
Princess Eugenie and her fiance Jack Brooksbank will tie the knot on October 12th at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and as the date draws ever closer, we’re getting a few more details, including who will be walking up the aisle with the bride.
While Princess Eugenie has some very famous friends including singer Ellie Goulding and actress/Prince Harry’s ex Cressida Bonas, we doubt they’ll be in her bridal party. That’s because unlike us commoners, royals typically have a bridal party made up of children as the page boys, bridesmaids and flower girls rather than their adult friends and family members.
While we expect Princess Beatrice will have a featuring role in the wedding much like Pippa Middleton did on Duchess Catherine’s big day, here’s a cheat sheet on the little ones escorting Princess Eugenie up the aisle. And one has a very famous, musical dad.
Theodora Rose Williams
The five year-old daughter of singer Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field, nicknamed Teddy, will be one of the bridesmaids at the wedding ceremony. Well that’s one celebrity guest we’ve definitely heard of.
According to The Mail on Sunday, Robbie and Ayda have been friends with both Princess Eugenie, 28, and her sister Princess Beatrice, 29, for some years.
Now to wait and see if Robbie say, “Let Me Entertain You” and perform at the reception.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte
The two eldest children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are well-rehearsed at this whole bridal party thing. Not only did they escort Aunty Pippa down the aisle at her wedding to James Matthews in 2017, but Prince George and Princess Charlotte stole the show at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May.
In fact, Charlotte is a good bridesmaid to have on hand. According to People, a royal wedding guest said that she kept the other children in line at Harry and Meghan’s wedding.
“There was one girl who wanted to go and she said, ‘No you can’t go yet. We have to wait until we are asked.’ She was really organised!”
“She looked very happy and content to be there!”
Four-year-old Maud, the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and his actress wife Sophie Winkleman will also be one of the bridesmaids. Maud’s grandparents are Prince and Princess Michael of Kent (yes, the one who wore THAT brooch), and as Prince Michael is the Queen’s cousin, Maud is a distant relation of Princess Eugenie’s.
And Maud have a familiar face with her, she is in the same class as Prince George at Thomas’s School in Battersea. We thought we recognised that school uniform!
Louis de Givenchy
Prince Louis may be a bit young for the wedding, but there will be another little one with the same name in attendance.
Six year-old Louis is the son of Olivier de Givenchy, a French senior banker at JP Morgan, and his Australian wife Zoe. This couple are also friends with Robbie and Ayda so everyone will be in good company.
Only three months until the big day!
