Cheeky! Royal cuties lead day of fun with play­mates

Daily Express - - NEWS - By David Pilditch

KATE and Wil­liam’s chil­dren led the way when it came to hav­ing fun on Eu­ge­nie’s big day.

Prince Ge­orge, five, and sis­ter Princess Char­lotte, three, were at the cen­tre of cel­e­bra­tions as soon as the bridal party set foot in St Ge­orge’s Chapel.

The older chil­dren of the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge are old hands at play­ing the roles of page boy and bridesmaid and now know ex­actly what it’s all about.

The young­sters waved en­thu­si­as­ti­cally to cheer­ing crowds as they were driven to the chapel.

Char­lotte took a tum­ble as she ar­rived along with page boy Louis de Givenchy, six, who also took a tum­ble in the blowy con­di­tions.

But she was soon back on her feet and bounded up the rest of the steps. As the group waited for the bride, cheeky seven-year-old Sa­van­nah Phillips, daugh­ter of the Queen’s grand­son Peter Phillips, kept Ge­orge en­ter­tained as she pre­tended to play a trum­pet fan­fare to her­ald the princess’s ar­rival.

Pop star Rob­bie Wil­liams’ daugh­ter Teddy, six, was also a bridesmaid.

The 44-year-old X Fac­tor judge and his wife Ayda Field, 39, have be­come good friends with the York fam­ily af­ter meet­ing on a Caribbean hol­i­day seven years ago.

Sa­van­nah’s six-year-old sis­ter Isla was also a bridesmaid, with Mia Tin­dall, four-year-old daugh­ter of Zara and Mike Tin­dall, and Maud Wind­sor, five, god­daugh­ter of Princess Eu­ge­nie and grand­daugh­ter of Princess Michael of Kent.

Their out­fits were de­signed by Amaia Ar­ri­eta of Amaia Kids, and the de­sign in­cor­po­rated the Mark Brad­ford art­work in­cluded in the Order of Ser­vice.

Lady Louise Mount­bat­tenWind­sor, 14, and James, Vis­count Sev­ern, aged 10, the chil­dren of Prince Ed­ward and So­phie Count­ess of Wes­sex, were spe­cial at­ten­dants.
