Princess Charlotte Will Be a Bridesmaid at Pippa Middleton’s Wedding

Princess Charlotte Will Be a Bridesmaid at Pippa Middleton’s Wedding

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Royality
Our hearts are already melting at the thought. Royal-in-law Pippa Middleton is set to marry her financier fiancé James Matthews on May 20, 2017, and although Kate Middleton won't be walking down the aisle as one of her sister's bridesmaids due to a longtime British tradition, that doesn't mean her and Prince William's two children won't play an adorable role in the ceremony.

But she won't be the only Cambridge in the mix. Her older brother, Prince George, 3, is expected to be a page boy in the ceremony.

She most recently climbed into the driver's seat to attend the Royal Windsor Horse Show last week, where she was pictured perfectly at ease in her Range Rover. As part of the "royal prerogative" – powers and rights that the sovereign alone possesses – Her Majesty is the only person in the UK who can drive without a license, even though driving licenses are issued in her name. Among her many privileges, she has never needed to take a driving test and is allowed to drive without a nu

Be more like Granddad! Queen tells Princes William and Harry to stop ‘soul-baring’ The Queen has reportedly told Princes William and Harry it is time for them to stop “soul-baring” and be more like their grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh. Sources suggest she instructed the younger royals to place more emphasis on their state duties, just days after Prince Philip announced he will be stepping down from the public eye in the autumn. The news comes just weeks after both princes spoke out about the struggle of coming to terms with the death of their mother, Princess Diana, as part of the Heads Together mental health campaign.   Speaking to the Sunday Times, a royal insider said: "As successful as that campaign was, it might be that soul-baring isn't what Buckingham Pal
