Prince George and Princess Charlotte always look royally adorable, but we especially love seeing them get dressed up for special occasions such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding on May 19. As you might remember, this isn’t the first major wedding in which Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children have played an important part.
When the kids’ aunt Pippa Middleton got hitched back in May 2017, Prince George and Princess Charlotte took on the major roles of page boy and bridesmaid. And then on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day, the tiny royals reprised those same roles in adorable royal wedding outfits. But royal fans might have noticed a big change in Prince George and Princess Charlotte today while they were part of yet another big wedding party: They’ve grown up quite a bit since Pippa Middleton's wedding! And no, we’re not just talking about the obvious bit about them being one year older (although that’s always exciting, too).
At Pippa Middleton’s wedding, Prince George and Princess Charlotte stole the show with some silly antics, such as making funny facial expressions and playing too much when it was time to be serious and take nice professional photos. Both the kids even ended up having minor meltdowns at certain points during all the excitement. Clearly, it was a little too much for the young ones! Unsurprisingly, mom Kate Middleton swooped in to save the day — she’s obviously not afraid to give her kiddos a talking-to when they need one! And we think it seriously paid off.
Although Prince George and Princess Charlotte are still just as cute as they were at Pippa Middleton’s wedding, it’s safe to say that both of them were much more well-behaved this time around for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. And the new pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the royal wedding prove it. To illustrate how much the kids behavior has matured, we put snapshots of the kids at both weddings side by side. Once you take a close look at each one, you’ll probably want to applaud both Kate Middleton and Prince William for their expert parenting.
