Newlyweds Pippa Middleton and James Matthews weren’t the only ones turning heads today. Eyes also fell on Prince George and Princess Charlotte as they played integral parts in their aunt’s intimate wedding at St. Mark’s Church in England. While mom Kate Middleton kept a close eye on the royal siblings, the pair couldn’t have been more adorable in the bridal party as a page boy and bridesmaid!

Proud parents Prince William and Princess Kate doted on their two children as they made their way down the aisle during the service. 3-year-old George was smartly dressed for his page boy duties, wearing a white shirt, golden satin knickerbockers, long white socks and matching shoes. Meanwhile, his 2-year-old sister was ever the bridesmaid in an ivory silk dress adorned with a pink sash, and a sweet flower headband. Charlotte completed her sugary ensemble with opaque tights and a pair of nude-colored shoes.

All of the cream-colored bridesmaid and pageboy outfits were bespoke commissions by Pepa & Co, complimenting Pippa’s stunning Giles Deacon dress beautifully. The Duchess of Cambridge took charge of the well-dressed youngsters, in addition to assisting her sister on the special day. This not only included her two little ones, but six other children who were also involved in the high-society event. Accompanying George and Charlotte were flower girls: Countess Philippa Hoyos, Lily French and Avia Horner, and pageboys: Casimir Tatos, Edward Sebire William and Ward.

Prior to the wedding, Kate was seen shepherding the delightful group down a church path. Pippa’s older sister did a wonderful job at keeping the little ones in line as they waited patiently. In an incredibly relatable mom moment, the Alexander McQueen clad royal turned around to calmly 'shush' the children just before walking into St. Mark’s. While the 35-year-old mom had her hands pretty full, she steadied a smile on her face the entire time.

Guests told reporters that the children were “very” well-behaved during the ceremony. This must have been a relief to the Duchess who, earlier this week, had expressed concerns about George and Charlotte. While attending the Queen's garden party at Buckingham Palace, Kate told one of the guests that she was "a bit worried" of how they would behave at the wedding. Partygoer Andrew Bates said: "[Kate] said that they were all really looking forward to her sister's wedding at the weekend but she was a bit worried about how her children might behave. She said she was hopeful that they would be good but you never know at that age."
