The Duchess of Cambridge watched her best friend Sophie Carter tie the knot this weekend.
Together with husband Prince William, the royal couple brought their two eldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to attend the nuptials.
The royals saw Sophie Carter marry Robert Snuggs at St Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk on Saturday.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte took on a very special role for the big day and were chosen to be one of three bridesmaids and one of four page boys taking part in the ceremony.
A royal insider told People magazine of the Prince: “George is a real star, quite the little chap.
“Afterward, George was seen dashing around the churchyard while little Charlotte headed towards her mother, who picked her up and held her as they posed for pictures with Sophie’s family.
“He was having a great time, running around like the leader of the pack.”
This is the second time the young royals have taken on central roles during a wedding this year, as they acted as a bridesmaid and page boy during the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in May.
