  • Princess Charlotte proved she’s a absolute wedding pro in Princess Eugenie’s official wedding photographs and mum Kate’s signature move massively helped.

    Princess Charlotte and Prince George looked adorable as a bridesmaid and pageboy at Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday (12 October).

    It was the little royal’s fourth go at the special role and their third wedding this year! It’s no surprise therefore that everything ran according to plan and all of the young bridal party were on their best behaviour.

    In fact, Charlotte looked like a complete pro sat between her older brother Prince George and Robbie Williams’ daughter Teddy who was standing next to Princess Eugenie’s new husband Jack Brooksbank.

    Princess Charlotte took a leaf out of her mum’s book and went for Kate’s signature slant posture with her legs crossed at the ankle and her hands placed on her lap.

    Pregnant Kate using her signature slant and Meghan Markle, who has just announced she is expecting, is also using the pose too 

    Kate often uses this sitting position and it’s especially good when you’re sat for a long time.

    Myka Meier, royal etiquette expert and founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette, explained to People: ‘Typically the “Duchess Slant” is used when a lady has to sit for an extended amount of time while keeping poise and posture.’

    But despite her royal pose in the pictures, Princess Charlotte did have one embarrassing moment where she tripped up the stairs on the way into St George’s Chapel.

    She was waving so enthusiastically in the car as she approached and on her way up the stairs that she must have just got a little distracted.

    Little Charlotte quickly recovered and in the official portraits from the wedding there are no signs of any ripped tights or scuffed knees.

    The Cambridge’s nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo was on-hand quickly and looked after the young bridal party throughout the day to make sure they didn’t have any mishaps.

    Kate and William were able to watch their children from a distance and must have been proud at how well they did. Although the wedding could have landed them in a little bit of trouble, the couple looked relaxed and even shared a rare touching moment!
