All eyes will no doubt be on the bride when Princess Eugenie marries Jack Brooksbank at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in October. But there's another group of attendees who could steal the show: the page boys.

Unlike in American wedding parties, royal bridal attendants are typically kids, usually young relatives or children of the bride and groom's close friends. With that in mind, we can expect Eugenie and Jack to choose a few youngsters to serve in their wedding party this fall.

Names have yet to be announced, but here's who we think could accompany Eugenie down the aisle:

PRINCE GEORGE

Prince George has a lot of page boy experience for a four-year-old. George first served as a page boy in his aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding back in May 2017, and then reprised his role in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding in May. As the son of Princess Eugenie's cousin, Prince William, George is a close relative of the bride, so giving the little prince a role in the wedding would be a meaningful gesture for the entire royal family.

ARTIE ANDREWES

Artie Andrewes is the son of Princess Eugenie's longtime friend Holly Branson (Richard Brandon's daughter) and her husband Fred Andrewes.

While it's unclear how well Princess Eugenie knows three-year-old Artie, he is a great contender for page boy on Eugenie and Jack's big day.

First, Holly is no stranger to the royal wedding circuit: she and Fred attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding back in May. Plus, Princess Eugenie attended Holly's wedding back in 2012, indicating just how close the two women are.

JAMES, VISCOUNT SEVERN

James, Viscount Severn is the son of Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex and a cousin of Princess Eugenie's. As a fellow grandchild of Queen Elizabeth, 10-year-old James would be another great choice for Eugenie and Jack to include in their wedding party.

ALBERT, LEOPOLD, AND LOUIS WINDSOR

Albert, Leopold, and Louis Windsor are the sons of Lord Nicholas Windsor, a relative of Princess Eugenie. The son of Prince Edward, the Duke of York, Nicholas is a great-grandson of King George V and a first cousin once removed of Queen Elizabeth. Although Eugenie is only distantly related to Nicholas, the Windsor family attends royal events throughout the year alongside Eugenie and her immediate family. The Windsors were photographed just in front of Eugenie and Beatrice at the Trooping the Colour celebration at Buckingham Palace in June. And Albert, 10, Leopold, eight, and four-year-old Louis could make an appearance in Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding party.
