Royal wedding video: Lady Louise Windsor almost BLOWN OVER by winds as page boy FALLS
LadyLouise Windsor suffered in the strong Storm Callum winds as a page boy she was charged with looking after tumbled on the steps while entering the chapel.
The gusts proved too strong for Pageboy Louis de Givenchy, 6, who was knocked to the ground by strong winds.
The six-year-old is the son of Zoe De Givenchy and Olivier De Givenchy.
Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, 14, daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex and James, Viscount Severn, aged 10, the children of Prince Edward and Sophie Countess of Wessex, were both given the role of special attendants.
Lady Louise greeted the bridal party at the West Steps before they entered the chapel, and the team of youngsters were kept in check by the Cambridges’ nanny as they waited to follow the bride down the aisle.
Royal insider James Brookes originally predicted that Kate would take care of the pageboys and bridesmaids.
Mr Brookes exclusively told Express.co.uk: “We saw that with Harry and Meghan, Kate did step up and take a role there.
“So I wouldn’t be surprised if we do see her play the role of guardian as much to not only George and Charlotte to make sure they behave, but also to make sure any of the other pageboys and flower girls are on their best behaviour too.
“So fingers crossed there’s no childcare issues on the day.”

Eugenie and Jack’s wedding carriage procession was made in the Scottish State Coach, a carriage with a roof rather than opened topped, as rain and strong winds were forecast for the wedding day, Buckingham Palace has said.
The carriage was pulled by four Windsor Grey horses – Plymouth, Milford Haven, Tyrone and Storm – the same horses that pulled the carriage the Duke and Duchess of Sussex travelled in for their wedding day carriage procession.
Windsor Grey horses play an important role in the ceremonial life of the royal family and the nation and have been drawing the carriages of successive monarchs and members of the monarchy since Queen Victoria’s reign.
Asked if Prime Minister Theresa May had any message for the couple, a Downing Street spokeswoman said: “She wishes them the best for the future and hopes they have a lovely day.”
The Queen and Prince Philip and Prince Charles – without his wife Camilla – arrived together in Windsor.
The monarch was wearing an ice blue Angela Kelly coat, dress and hat – with large gold and diamond buttons and an ice blue and peach scalloped lame dress.
Other royals in attendance included Princess Anne, Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Prince Edward, Zara Tindall and her husband Mike Tindall.
Princess Eugenie, who is ninth in line to the throne, stunned in an ivory dress, designed by British-based Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.
The 28-year-old’s dress featured a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full-length train.
The dress also included a number of symbols meaningful to Princess Eugenie as motifs, including a thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, a Shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the bride’s Ferguson family, and the York Rose and ivy representing the couple’s home.
Emotional groom Jack Brooksbank was filmed playing with Princess Eugenie’s hands shortly after the couple exchanged rings at St. George’s Chapel.
Jack could be seen reaching for Eugenie’s right hand as his cousin Charles Brooksbank delivered his speech in front of the congregation.
Princess Eugenie could also be seen lovingly holding her husband’s hand while adoringly smiling at him.
