The Princess Bridesmaid

Today's wedding between Philippa "Pippa" Middleton, sister of The Duchess of Cambridge, and James Matthews is not a royal wedding, but it does have many royal guests and two little royal attendants. While Pippa's nephew Prince George took up pageboy duties in light green pants, her niece two-year-old Princess Charlotte charmed in a traditional ivory dress with dusty pink sash and a crown of flowers.



Little Charlotte of Cambridge, however, is not the first princess to take on the role of bridesmaid. Here is a look back at a few of these cuties.
