Pic­ture per­fect and full of fun, the scene steal­ers of Wind­sor

Daily Mail - - EUGENIE’S MAGICAL DAY - By Re­becca English Royal Cor­re­spon­dent

While the bride and groom were clearly be­set with nerves, the same can­not be said for their scen­esteal­ing at­ten­dants.

The an­tics of eu­ge­nie and Jack’s eight- strong group of page­boys and brides­maids kept view­ers en­ter­tained from the mo­ment they ar­rived in their Daim­ler DS 420 cars.

Princess Char­lotte, three, dis­played her usual con­fi­dence in pub­lic, wav­ing en­er­get­i­cally to crowds at St Ge­orge’s Chapel.

She and the other girls looked pic­ture per­fect in their dresses by de­signer Amaia Ar­ri­eta, with dis­tinc­tive sashes bear­ing a print by US-based artist Mark Brad­ford.

The de­sign was also on the cum­mer­bunds of the boys – in­clud­ing five-year- old Prince Ge­orge, who wore blue vel­vet trousers and white shirts. Given the age of the group, rang­ing from three to seven, there were bound to be some high jinks.

Char­lotte’s en­thu­si­asm sparked a heart-stop­ping mo­ment as she tripped up the steps to the chapel, drag­ging page­boy louis de Givenchy, six, to his knees. luck­ily there was help from lady louise Mount­bat­ten-Wind­sor, 14, daugh­ter of the earl and Count­ess of Wes­sex.

in­side the chapel Sa­van­nah Phillips, the el­dest daugh­ter of eu­ge­nie’s cousin, Peter Phillips, mim­icked the fan­fare that greeted the Queen. her an­tics left Ge­orge in hys­ter­ics – al­though he quickly slapped his hand over his mouth in mock hor­ror.

Zara Tin­dall’s adorably mis­chievous daugh­ter Mia, four, was the pic­ture of deco­rum and didn’t blink an eye­lid at the fun.

Af­ter the ser­vice, Sa­van­nah sweetly smoothed down Char­lotte’s hair in the wind, while Theodora ‘Teddy’ Wil­liams – the six-year- old daugh­ter of singer Rob­bie Wil­liams – ex­cit­edly waved good­bye to the bride and groom. Then it was back to Wind­sor Cas­tle for lunch, a few games … and plenty of cake.

But­ter wouldn’t melt: Ge­orge and Char­lotte on chapel steps

What nerves? Joy­ous Char­lotte revels in spot­light
