The countdown is on for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's royal wedding, and the couple have now confirmed who will be playing major roles in their Friday nuptials at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. Princess Eugenie has called upon big sister Princess Beatrice to serve as her maid of honor, while the groom’s brother, Thomas Brooksbank, will be best man. Of course, one thing we’re really looking forward to is seeing the adorable page boys and flower girls – and it has been confirmed that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George, five, and Princess Charlotte, three, will be playing starring roles!
