Prince George and Princess Charlotte are back in familiar roles — pageboy and bridesmaid!

On Saturday afternoon, members of the royal family stepped out for the wedding of one of Kate Middleton’s closest friends, Sophie Carter, who married Robert Snuggs at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk.

The country wedding was attended by Prince William, Princess Kate and their two eldest children.

For the weekend affair, both children wore traditional bridal attendant outfits in white and blue. Charlotte, 3, was one of three bridesmaids, while George, 5, was among the chosen four pageboys.

Dressed in a traditional tailcoat and vest, 36-year-old William arrived with some friends. Kate, also 36, wore a striking blue coatdress by Catherine Walker & Co as she arrived with the children in a decorated farmer’s truck, which might usually be used for carrying people to a shoot or hunt.

Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton were also in attendance, as was their son James. However, Pippa Middleton, who’s expecting her first child next month, was not present.

During the ceremony, locals joined in the celebration by watching in the churchyard and taking pictures of the occasion.

Later, George was seen dashing around the churchyard while little Charlotte headed to her mother, who picked her up and held her as they posed for pictures with Sophie’s family.

“George is a real star, quite the little chap,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He was having a great time, running around like the leader of the pack.”

George and Charlotte both completed their wedding hat-trick, after having previously had roles in both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May and Pippa and James Matthews’ wedding in 2017.

Kate has been friends with Sophie for many years, with the two enjoying birthday celebrations together as well as more public events such as the Wimbledon. Sophie, who is one of Charlotte’s godparents, has previously joined the Cambridges on ski vacations and has even accompanied Kate to church with the Queen at Sandringham.

Another pair of Charlotte’s godparents were at the wedding: Thomas van Straubenzee and James Meade.

Sophie, who grew up in the village of Letheringsett, Norfolk — not far from Kate and William’s country house Anmer Hall — has long been in the same social circle as not only Kate but William too.

Sophie once dated one of William’s closest friends, Thomas van Straubenzee, while Sophie’s brother, Robert Carter, is married to Kate’s old school pal, Hannah Gillingham.
