The Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, 8, Tom Pettifer, 8, and Lady Louise Windsor, 7, wave as they pull up to Westminster Abbey.
The pageboys and bridesmaids disembark as they reach Westminster Abbey. At 10, pageboy Master William Lowther-Pinkerton (far right) is the oldest of the attendants.
What’s so funny? Tom Pettifer gets a contagious case of the giggles as the Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones and Lady Louise Windsor exit their chauffeured ride.
Alexander McQueen-clad maid of honor (and sister of the bride!) Pippa Middleton holds tight to both 3-year-old attendants, Grace van Cutsem and Eliza Lopes. Each of the bridesmaids’ dresses has her name and the date of the wedding hand-embroidered onto the lining of each frock as a special memento of the day.
GANG OF SIX
All of the attendants process into Westminster Abbey along with Pippa. The pageboys’ striking red uniforms are reminiscent of the Regency era, with its insignia drawn from the Irish Guards, whose Colonel is Prince William.
As the bride glided down the aisle on the arm of her father Michael Middleton, she was followed by her entire bridal party, led by maid of honor Pippa.
After the ceremony ends, Pippa piles into an elegant carriage along with Grace, Margarita and William as the procession wends its way toward Buckingham Palace.
DO THE WAVE
Lady Louise Windsor, daughter of Prince Edward, gets in sync with her cousin Prince Harry as they greet the throngs of gathered royal watchers from the comfort of their carriage.
VIEW TO A KISS
While people around the globe swooned at the romance of two kisses, one little girl was not so impressed! In a gesture getting attention from everyone from CNN to vanityfair.com, Grace van Cutsem (Prince William’s goddaughter) frowned and covered her ears while the crowd roared for the newlyweds’ smooch.
It’s one last shot for the day’s littlest supporting players. The children put their best faces forward for a special moment – an official portrait – with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Say “cheers”!
