Royal Children in British Weddings Through the Years

Take a look back at all the adorable royal page boys and bridesmaids through history.

Pippa Middleton may have been the bride, but it was her pageboy Prince George and young bridesmaid Princess Charlotte who really stole the show at the May 2017 nuptials. Fortunately for fans of the royal babies, it looks like the brother-sister team could be reprising their roles at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in just a few weeks.

When asked by the Sunday Times whether young George and Charlotte would be in the wedding party, Kensington Palace responded, "The wedding will be a family event. You can expect the family to be involved."

Nothing is confirmed just yet, but given that Kensington Palace just confirmed that Markle won't have a maid of honor and the whole bridal party will be made up of children, we think the odds are good are we'll see George and Charlotte carrying her train down the aisle at Windsor Castle. In the meantime, take a look back at royal children in weddings throughout the years.
