The little girl who stole our hearts.
For years to come she will always be the little darling that captured the exhiliration, the tenacity and of course the agitation (from a little girl’s point of view who just doesn’t understand quite the fuss is about) that so often comes about large glossy gatherings. Especially if those gatherings come to be eagerly anticipated royal weddings. That said- who exactly is the little bridesmaid in the best picture?
npr: It’s 3-year-old Grace van Cutsem, a goddaughter of the prince’s. Her family, as Britain’s EDP24 reports, had several “key roles in the royal wedding.” Grace’s father, Hugh, has known William since they were boys. An uncle of hers is in the Household Cavalry’s Life Guards and was in command of the Captain’s Escort yesterday.
Not bad work if you can get it- except this little bridesmaid wasn’t necessarily so pleased that she had this plum little job to contend with- not with all those screaming admirers outside the balcony windows, the fighter jets roaring above and the ‘stench’ of two grown ups kissing on the lips. Ugh.
Unseen though is the class and compassion of the bride- Kate Middleton who has the good grace to tend to young Grace whom she senses is all too piqued by that days festivities.
Oh dear- aren’t you glad you didn’t have to be one of the royal bridesmaids?
