When it comes to weddings of close friends and family, there are no rules as far as rank, protocol or status. That's the public life of William and Kate and their children. None of that mattered when it came to being asked to be page boy and bridesmaid. What mattered was the close relationship between the bride and Kate.

At this wedding, I think it would be appropriate to say that the kids attended as George Cambridge and Charlotte Cambridge.

It's nice that the Cambridges were able to attend the wedding as a regular family. Catherine looked lovely and I'm sure that George and Charlotte were adorable in their outfits. They probably enjoyed a break from the cameras and it was sweet to hear the anecdotes about George running around and leading the other children.

I am fully with @Fijiro #550! The little Prince is the future King. That should be not forgotten. And if he gets tired and mum gets angry at him, like she did at Pippa's wedding - this is inappropriate...

Your words bring something to mind, victor. Would you then think its appropriate then to bring back the whipping boy? When the little future King acts up, so as not to infringe on his royal personage, punishment would be sentenced and applied to the whipping boy.

I believe that is how it was done in ages long, long ago.

Nah, but little Princes have a life hard to cope with... Sure, also a Prince has to learn about manners and boundaries. But not all has to be public, even in the public life of the royals.

I don't know about that. Little princes, little truck drivers, little policemen and little soldier boys all have to start at the same place learning the basics from mommy and daddy. It gives them the tools they need to be the big King, the big truck driver, the big policeman and the big soldier man.

Kids at George's age still do not have any kind of an understanding just what their future roles are to be and most won't have any kind of an idea until they make that decision themselves when they're older. No matter what, George is a child and for now, should be treated as a child of his age needs to be treated. With love, discipline and setting boundaries.

Just my opinion.

It sure didn't hurt William any when his mother swatted him in public. George getting a stern word didn't hurt him either.

I was intrigued by an interview given by the twins father at H&M wedding. He said the most important thing was that the kids were having fun and not stressing. And that seemed to work well.

That wedding was a bigger event than all of the kids will probably ever be part of again, except George and Charlotte. But, nobody worried how they came up the aisle. They were children grinning at anyone they knew or perhaps smiling at strangers who smiled at them.

All of the children were experiencing the full attention of the media but they were cool with that, even a future King and maybe Princess Royal? That made me think, what a wonderful introduction to "duties" for the royal pair and this latest wedding is probably not the last they will participate in.

For the royal children it is a chance to be merely one of the gaggle and they are all learning how to behave in public. So yes, they have to learn to behave in an acceptable way, just like all the kids around them. But they are learning things that are essential to them in their future lives. Life lessons that are merely by-products of a fun experience.

W&C are smart people who are training them up in the way they should go in such a way that they don't really know that they are learning . . . what they have to wear, how they are expected to behave and what is not acceptable behaviour. It is just the same for all the kids around them, not just them.

They are, and will continue to be, expected to learn age-appropriate behaviour as they grow and what better way to learn than with other kids that may become lifelong friends.

That's just silly. Sophie is a longtime, close friend of Kate's. Nothing wrong with your children being in one of your best friends' wedding (and Charlotte is Sophie's goddaughter.)

For heaven's sake-George was not even 4 years old at Pippa's wedding. If he misbehaved it is perfectly appropriate for his mother to correct him-future king or not.

George is a human child, future king or not. The times where reasonable people actually believed royals were anointed by God or whatever is way gone. George should be raised as any other little boy although hopefully with a recognition of the huge amount of unearned privilege he has; and a sense of duty to serve and give back as a result, whether the monarchy is still around or not when he is older. I sense this is the practical approach the Cambridges are taking with their children.

Being in a family friend's wedding is a normal part of life and will hardly make him "too common" or whatever. And a child should be corrected when acting out in public. That is good parenting. Future king or not.

George future king or not is a child. The last thing we need is a spoiled best who terrorizes everyone as no one will correct the future king.

The kids are too young they dint have any idea of their future role. Their parents have said that they want the kids to be normal. Part if that is being involved in family events. This wasn't a public wedding, a private event.

When these photos first showed up in People, GFY noted that they are uncredited, which is highly unusual. Now that the DM has them, I notice they also don’t show a photo credit. And evidently none of the usual photos services, like Getty, have them. Which seems to suggest only one photographer managed to get shots, but for some reason doesn’t want his or her name out there. Which raises certain questions about whether all of the pertinent laws were followed (and the DM taking some time to ask those questions may explain why, for a little bit, it did look like People was going to have an exclusive).

Now, legalities and oddities of the overall situation aside, it does underline that neither People nor DM were actually there. They don’t have video. The pictures of the children seem to come exclusively in what appears to be the period of time after the ceremony when everyone was relaxed and milling about. My point being that they have absolutely no idea whether or not George and Charlotte actually “stole the show” or acted out. Those are just words taken from purely speculative articles that were extrapolated from a handful of photos that may or may not have come from a dodgy source.

Mark Stewart, @regaleyes, took the photos. He’s an accredited royal photographer. He takes polo pics, pics from other society weddings and the like.

The pics are also in the Telegraph with credit to Mark Stewart. I’m not sure why the DM doesn’t give credit.

The photos were taken by Regal Eyes, aka Mark Stewart.
No idea why they weren’t credited.

I agree. George is a very well behaved young man but naturally, like all children his age, he'll have his 'moments' and it's at times like this where parents step in (or should). Otherwise children will carry on thinking that this is the correct way to behave when tired or bored etc, and that goes for all children and not just royal children or children in the public spotlight.

From Reese Witherspoon’s new book, Whiskey in a Teacup, per Marie Claire

Quote:
She was just lovely and warm, elegant and composed,” Witherspoon writes.

“She also told a joke, and I immediately fell under her spell. She’s just as magnificent as she seems to be. She’s a very compassionate, socially conscious, deeply caring person.”

Witherspoon also recognized that Kate’s place in the public eye isn’t easy.

“It takes a very special person to decide to commit to that kind of life, to choose to be under public scrutiny every moment,” writes the actress. “Now that she’s in that position, her entire life is in service, forever. I am so in awe of that kind of dedication.”

Hello guys, I am a new member on this forum. I really love Will and Kate and their three little angels. They are an amazing couple, so down to Earth. I love that they are trying to keep their children's privacy as more as possible. George, Charlotte and I believe Louis will be, polite and well behaved kids. They have grown up so fast. I have noticed that Charlotte just like any other girl is looking up to her mom. There was a funny news I read:
One Detail In This Photo Shows Charlotte Is Copying Mum Kate

Aww, those kids are a true blessing!

Keira Kneightely accuses the Duchess of Cambridge of hiding the ‘bloody, screaming’ reality of giving birth by posing for photos hours after having Princess Charlotte.

Nonsense. Everyone should act and dress as they feel.
If the Duchess feels fine 12 hours after labour.
Should she have come out in a wheelchair, dressed in a pyamasuit?
Only if she felt she needed it.
