I suppose we may treat this declaration as official?
Kid wrangling was my immediate thought. Thatís going to be adorable.

I think she has all of her (Windsor) cousins children included plus 2 who are children of friends. Nice big party.

It is supposed to be very windy the day of the wedding and a decent possibility of rain, hopefully it will not be raining during arrivals and departures. If Prince Philip is a no show, my guess is that the weather will be the main reason.

With so many cute royal kiddies I suspect the BBC is regretting not covering this live. Big coup for ITV.

I love the list of attendants. Cousins can have such special relationships and sharing family adventures like this can be wonderful shared memories. I'm doubly looking forward to it now.

I had extra attendants at my wedding that helped seat guests and such, Eugenie clearly wanted to include her younger cousins.

This is my guess. So on that note, I predict that it will be Viscount Severn who will walk Sarah, Duchess of York to her seat, heck maybe even the Queen, and if Camilla is absent then Lady Louise will do the honors with Prince Charles.

Oh I love this! Whatever is said about the Windsor family, it is really fantastic when you see the family together.

I hope this wedding is a turning point for the York family and that they will be viewed more positively.

Eugenie will have a beautiful wedding!

Wow. Savannah, Isla, George, Mia, Charlotte, Maud, Louise and James. This is a royal watcher's dream line-up.

Though it's a little strange she only picked paternal relatives. There are some little kids on her maternal side. I think her 1st cousin Amara is about 6 years old.

The Bridal Party is interesting - now I'm excited about watching the wedding on TV

Maybe, maybe not. No doubt they suspected this bridal party as many thought the Cambridges would be involved and they still declined for whatever reason. Itís their lost. Good for ITV and I hope the weather cooperates. Looks to be a lovely wedding.

How nice of Eugenie to include all the queen's great-grandchildren -who are old enough for this duty- and to make sure the Wessexes aren't excluded by making their children/Eugenie's younger cousins special attendants. The input from Jack's side is rather limited however.

I really don't see why James and Louise would be walking with anyone down the aisle.

I've just watched videos back from Henry and Meghans wedding and the only people to actually walk up the aisle were Henry and William, followed by Meghan. The Queen didn't walk up, neither did Charles or Camilla. They all entered through the side door and immediately took their seats so I would expect everyone to do the same, including Sarah.

I did not say they were coming down the aisle. I know the Queen comes in through the side door and was not sure about the others but neither scenario precludes them from being escorted to their seats.

My apologise, I seemed to have mixed up my posts!

I had thought they would more likely seat and potentially hand out to those sitting in the main chapel. Then take their seats or move up to the naive when required, however that does mean they'll be there pretty early.

Eugenie might have an entirely different role for them!

OH! Maybe they're reading something?

My guess is that they are referred to as "special attendants" because they are older than the other children in the bridal party.

Just thinking about it; isn’t this the first born Princess of the United Kingdom royal wedding since Princess Anne’s wedding right?

Doubt it. Reality is, other than George and Charlotte, the other kids don't really generate that much interest either. Most people don't tune in to a wedding to see kids walking for a minute. It still depends on the couple.

Eh, I just think how people see royals have changed. In Anne's day, it'd never be imaginable for rightful HRHs (James and Louise) to not have their title. Obviously, times have changed. In fact, Angus Ogilvy was troubled by the fact that he and Princess Alexandria set a precedent that eventually led to grandchildren of the Queen not be titled. I don't think anyone would be troubled by that today.
