He also used to walk out of doors three steps ahead of her you can find it in alot of photos of them.. like I said before I always thought it was to insure that pictures of them were harder to get....

Grace Van Cutsem is only three! I hope Kate knows what she is doing; I wouldn't rely on a three year-old to manage as a bridesmaid!
Pippa is no surprise; and Lady Louise Windsor and Margarita Armstrong-Jones will be a good match, they're about the same age.

But I would be very leery of the three year-old, that's too young!

So Lady Louise and Margarita are bridesmaids?? Aww...that would be very cute if they are! You don't really see either of them so that would be a treat!

I agree with you though, three is too young for a bridesmaid!!

Royal wedding: Queen's youngest grandddaughter to be bridesmaid - mirror.co.uk

Kate Middleton has chosen the Queen’s youngest granddaughter Louise as one of her bridesmaids.

Kate is thought to have chosen four bridesmaids. As well as Louise and her sister Pippa, 27, it is expected that Viscount Linley’s daughter Margarita Armstrong-Jones, eight, and three-year-old Grace van Cutsem will accompany the bride.

Sophie¿s little Lady Louise picked as royal bridesmaid | Mail Online

I like the choices but I must question the need for the following comment: 'They don’t want to offend anyone and don’t want to leave anyone out.’ They are including Wessex, Linley and Chatto along with Pippa's family - fine but let's not make a comment like not wanting to leave anyone out when one branch of the family are being left out apparently. The Yorks - I know they are older and I am not surprised but it is the comment in the article I am taking issue with and not the apparent decision of William and Kate.

If true, I am a little surprised by the people. Not by the actual names but the fact that there aren't more people in the bridal party...no Spencers (which isn't a biggie IMO) but more importantly, no representation from the Middleton side other than Pippa. They have no little cousins or family friends?

I guess we shall see if its true.

ETA: Margarita is 8! Gosh has it been eight years already since Princess Margaret died?

It has actually been 9 years. She died in 2002 a few days after the 50th anniversary of the death of her father - 9th February, 2002.

Margarita will be 9 on 14th May this year.

We can compile a list when we hear who has confirmed their attendance. We won't know a full list until the actual day.

I was a bridesmaid for my Uncle when I was 3. No idea if I was good or if I caused havoc as I can't remember it at all!

The announcement of the children who will be in the wedding got me thinking again about William's uniform. I do think he should wear the uniform of the service in which he is actively serving even though it's a bit plain. But if the girls wear sashes of the same green and perhaps Catherine carries alot of green in her flowers, it can be made to look stunning.

This announcement makes me wondering - will there be any role left for Catherine's brother James? It gives me sort of a 'left out' feeling, but that could be just me.

Green? I thought the RAF uniform is a sort of blue-gray color.

According to me it is blue-gray. I can't find an ounce of green in it.

Can you explain what you meant, csw?

Perhaps James will be one of William's Supporters?

But I'm pleased about Lady Louise and the fact that she is said to be so ecstatic about being a bridesmaid.
(It's fine for her parents to be protective, but I think it's a mistake to keep her from being photographed because of a slight defect; that's the way to make her self-conscious and uncomfortable, imo.)

I hope she has a wonderful experience at the wedding!

Systematically? There are a few clips and/or pictures where William is walking ahead of Catherine out of hundreds of photographs and a few dozen videos of them walking together. The bottom line is that in most of these photos and video's they are either walking side by side or with other people in proximity to each other. You can say it's rude or disrespectful that he did it a few times, however to use those few instances as the summation of his disregard or disrespect to Catherine or to claim that there is a void in their relationship is a profound exaggeration IMO.

The Queen and Princess Ann did not get married in a time where the media crossed the boundaries and would go to any length to get photos and details about the dress. The fact that she wants to keep the designer a secret until the big day is understandable and what is best for the person she chose. The Emmanuel's were bombarded by the media and had to go to extreme lengths to keep the design a secret when it was leaked that they were the designers of Diana's dress. It has nothing to do with "snobbery". It's practical and necessary considering the intense media interest on this wedding.

It's irrational to accuse her of lacking "charm" and "warmth" simply because she isn't giving personal interviews to divulge more about herself and releasing details about the designer, receptions, etc... The question shouldn't be "why isn't she?" but rather, "why WOULD she?" We will all have plenty of opportunities to get to know Catherine after she is married. No bride or groom marrying into the RF has given personal interviews prior to ther wedding day. Therefore, why is Catherine obligated to?

You want to know if she knows the arts? She graduated with a 2:1 Honors degree in the History of Art. I imagine she knows more than you may about the subject. As for her philanthropic and humanitarian leanings, has there been any other bride/groom marrying into the Royal family who has been required to state those prior to the marriage? Again, why is there such unreasonable expectations for Catherine?

In what way was Camilla more exciting at the same point leading up to her wedding than Catherine? I don't understand this statement unless you are referring to her scandalous past with PoW. Please explain.

Do you think this shows that William and Louise have a close relationship? IMO it does as stated obviously in the Mail, if they didn't I am sure Prince Edward would have convinced Will and Kate otherwise to choose someone else, with Edwards obvious dislike of the media shine on Louise.

Maybe I am just silly, I don't know. Haha.
