Prince George and Princess Charlotte will reportedly reprise their roles as page boy and flower girl in 2018, as they are set to play a very important part in their uncle Prince Harry’s wedding day.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement with a surprise photocall and a very sweet televised interview with the BBC last week.
While Meghan and Harry revealed their plans to start a family ‘in the near future’, it seems that in the mean time Meghan has been getting to know her future little niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The young royals have obviously hit it off with their uncle’s wife-to-be, as it has been reported that both Prince George and Princess Charlotte will play important roles in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding next year.
Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married in May 2018, and the ceremony will take place at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
The Sunday Times have now reported that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be part of the wedding party on the big day, likely walking down the aisle with Meghan as a pageboy and flower girl.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson told the paper: ‘The wedding will be a family event. You can expect the family to be involved.’
Prince George and Princess Charlotte first took on the important wedding party roles in May 2017, when the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton chose the two little ones to play a part in her wedding to James Matthews.
Prince George and his sister Charlotte were snapped outside the church looking very sweet in their smart page boy and bridesmaid outfits that matched the rest of the wedding party.
At the time, Kate admitted she was worried about her children having such a big role in her sister’s special day, as ‘you never know what her children might do’.
Kate made the confession at Buckingham Palace’s first garden party of the season earlier this year, but there is no sign yet as to whether the Duchess has similar fears for Prince Harry and Meghan’s big day.
By the time the wedding day comes round, Kate will have just given birth to her third child, which the Palace revealed is due in April 2018.
So with three children to keep an eye on instead of two, Kate is certainly going to have her hands full when Meghan and Harry tie-the-knot!
