Prince George and Princess Charlotte are set to reprise their roles in a royal wedding party.
On Wednesday, Buckingham Palace announced that the little royals, who last served royal duties during Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 19th ceremony, would be among the eight bridesmaids and page boys, all youngsters, to serve in Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Friday, Oct. 12.
Prince George, 5, will join one other page boy for the ceremony – Mr. Louis de Givenchy, the 6-year-old son of Zoe De Givenchy and Olivier De Givenchy.
Along with Princess Charlotte, 3, the five other bridesmaids include Savannah, 7, and Isla Phillips, 6, the daughters of Autumn and Peter Phillips; Zara and Mike Tindall's 4-year-old daughter Mia; Princess Eugenie’s goddaughter, 5-year-old Maud Windsor; and 6-year-old Thoedora Williams, the daughter of Adya Field and Robbie Williams.
Queen Elizabeth’s youngest grandchildren, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, 14, and Viscount Severn, 10, will serve as “special attendants.”
Princess Beatrice will be Eugenie’s maid of honor, while groom-to-be Jack Brooksbank has asked his brother, Thomas, to be best man.

The couple, who initially met after being introduced by friends while Eugenie was still at Newcastle University in Verbier, Switzerland, will walk down the aisle at St George’s Chapel, the very spot where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot in May.0comments
