Royal wedding: Where are Kate Middleton and Princess Diana’s bridesmaids NOW?

The countdown to the royal wedding has begun, with anticipation building. However as we get ready for the biggest royal wedding since Kate and Prince William tied the knot, we look back at the bridesmaids from their wedding and Princess Diana’s big day.

Prince William and the then-Kate Middleton had four bridesmaids and two page boys alongside Pippa Middleton as maid of honour and Prince Harry as best man.

Lady Louise Windsor, the seven-year-old daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Margarita Armstrong-Jones, the eight-year-old daughter of the Viscount and Viscountess Linley; Grace van Cutsem, the three-year-old daughter of the couple’s friend, Hugh van Cutsem and Eliza Lopes, the three-year-old granddaughter of the Duchess of Cornwall joined the couple on their big day.

Where are the Duchess of Cambridge’s bridesmaids?
1. The most famous and memorable bridesmaid at Kate and William’s wedding in 2011 was the little girl with the serious facial expressions.

A grumpy Grace van Cutsem stole the show seven years ago when she seemed less than enthused to be a part of the wedding.

She scowled and covered her ears as the crowds cheered during William and Kate’s first kiss and became a hit with royal fans.

Her dad Hugh van Cutsem is a close friend of Prince William and is also godfather to Grace.

She is likely to be a guest at Harry’s royal wedding on May 19, however she is now 10-years-old and grown up a lot since that day when she upstaged the newly-weds.

2. Lady Louise Windsor – the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie Countess of Wessex – is now 13.

The granddaughter of the Queen and Prince Philip is now 12th in line to the throne and regularly carries out royal duties alongside her mum and dad.

Lady Louise appeared at the Queen’s 92nd birthday concert at Royal Albert Hall in April.

She is now 15 and attends Tudor Hall School in Banbury – the teenager, who is the late Princess Margaret’s granddaughter, is also expected to be in attendance at Harry and Meghan’s wedding.

She cut an adorable figure as flower girl at the royal wedding and will likely appear alongside mother Laura Rose Lopes at Meghan and Harry’s wedding.

The 10-year-old is now big sister to twin brothers, Gus and Louis.

The Queen’s niece is 21st in line to the throne and prefers to maintain a life out of the royal spotlight with her husband Daniel Chatto and their two sons, Samuel and Arthur.

She trained as an artist and became a professional painter and regularly exhibits her work.
