Any avid royal fan would agree that the moment Kensington Palace confirmed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's two cherubs, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were going to have very special roles in Pippa's wedding, we were all destined to see something great unfold.
While they're ridiculously cute, putting young kids in a bridal party always makes for some very amusing moments. And the royal siblings delivered so many hilarious moments during their double-act, we almost forgot we were watching the wedding of the year.
Prince George was the sweetest looking pageboy on his aunt's big day. The growing three-year-old looked adorable in gold pants and a Peter Pan collared white shirt, and knee-high socks.
But weddings are very long—especially when you're a kid with better things to do—and George was less than impressed by the hour-long church ceremony. By the time he and his bridal party pals walked outside with the newly crowned Mr. and Mrs. James Matthews, Prince George had had enough! (See what he did that caused him to cry in the video below.)
Footage from the bridal party leaving the church appears to show Prince George getting a bit naughty, but Duchess Catherine wasn't having any of it. Kate had admitted prior to the wedding that Prince George and Princess Charlotte's behavior had her "worried" that her little ones would act up.

The talking-to from mom didn't take too long and soon enough, our favorite Prince resumed his unimpressed stance.
And George wasn't the only pageboy acting out.
One of his fellow pageboys was snapped making a rather rude finger gesture and poking his tongue out, while Duchess Catherine stood behind him. By the look on Kate's face, we're guessing it didn't go down very well.
Princess Charlotte, however, was simply divine as a bridesmaid.
In her custom-made Pepa & Co outfit, 2-year-old Charlotte stole her Pippa's thunder, winning hearts around the world. Charlotte was a vision in a sweet ivory dress with a dusty pink bow detail, completed with the most perfect flower crown.
While the youngster was on her best behavior during the ceremony, she did have a moment where it all became a bit too much.
Prince George quickly came to his crying sister's aid, distracting her with a floral wreath.
This is the first time we've seen the siblings this year, and it appears George's boisterous nature has rubbed off on Charlotte.
Kate, who revealed the siblings are “really good friends", was in stitches from her daughter's antics before entering the church.
And the Duchess' description of Charlotte being the “one in charge” shone through.
The sassy two-year-old clearly was vying for head bridesmaid, showing up everyone else with her sweet smiles and adorable poses.
Princess Charlotte proved that she may be fourth in line to the throne but nothing—including licking her flower basket—is beneath her.
It will come as no surprise that many comparisons have been made of the next generation of royal kids looking just like their famous parents.
Charlotte has inherited her mommy's signature brunette locks and delicate features, while Prince George is the spitting image of his famous dad.
And it turns out he's following in his footsteps too!
Three decades ago, a young Prince William stepped into the role of pageboy for his uncle Prince Andrew's nuptials to Sarah Ferguson.
The year was 1986, dressed in a sailor's outfit, the young chap showed us where George gets his bemused expression from.
Reports from the time revealed that Prince William was especially naughty, pulling faces, poking out his tongue and yawning throughout the proceedings.
David Dimbleby commented during the live broadcast that Wills looked "rather doubtful and rather cross".
William got a do-over in 1988 where he was the perfect gentlemen stepping into his role at the wedding of Camilla Dunne and Rupert Soames, a grandson of former U.K. Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
