Royal weddings are the ultimate wedding inspiration. Even if all eyes are on the bride’s wedding dress, little flower girls and ring bearers always steal the spotlight!
Meghan Markle's Flower Girls
The Flower Girls at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding stuck to a traditional color palette. They wore matching white dresses teamed with floral headbands tied with ribbons. The dresses, made from Ivory silk Radzimir, were designed by Givenchy Haute Couture Atelier’s Clare Waight Keller, who also designed Meghan's gown.
They were high-waisted with short puff sleeves and tied with a double silk ribbon bow at the back. Each of the flower girls also wore white leather Aquazurra shoes, monogrammed with their initials and the wedding date.
All eyes were on the three-year-old Princess Charlotte who made everyone smile when she cheekily poked her tongue out at the crowd as she entered the chapel.
Meghan Markel's Flower Girls were :
- Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, 3
- Miss Florence van Cutsem, 3, goddaughter of Prince Harry, daughter of Mrs. Alice van Cutsem and Major Nicholas van Cutsem
- Miss Remi Litt, 6, goddaughter of Ms. Markle, daughter of Mrs. Benita Litt and Mr. Darren Litt

Kate Middleton's Flower Girls
At Kate and William's wedding, the pageboys and bridesmaids were dressed in more traditional fashion, wearing white dresses and traditional British military jackets. British designer Nicki McFarlane created the flower girl dresses. Chosen by the British Royal family, the Ivory ‘Eliza’ ballerina length dress by Nicki Macfarlane has a simply chic and elegant charm. Designed in luxurious silk dupion, the same fabric as Middleton's Alexander McQueen wedding dress, the skirt falls just above the ankle with lace trim and tulle petticoat. It has pretty short puffed sleeves with cloth-covered buttons and is tied with a large royal gold sash.Hand-embroidered into the lining of each dress was the bridesmaid's name and the date, as a 'special momento'.
The little flower girls carried the same flowers as Kate’s bouquet for their own little bouquets and for the floral headbands.
Kate Middleton's Flower Girls were:
- Lady Louise Windsor, daughter of Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex
- Margarita Armstrong-Jones, granddaughter of Princess Margaret and Anthony Armstrong-Jones
- Grace van Cutsem, daughter of William's friends, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh van Cutsem
- Eliza Lopes, granddaughter of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Pippa Middleton's Flower Girls
While Pippa wore a lace dress by Giles Deacon, her flower girls wore cream, knee-length dresses, in a very rustic style, made out of a different material than the bride’s dress. They had special designed collars and puffed out short sleeves. On their heads, they wore traditional flower garlands. They even had a lovely flower crown made from gypsophila.
It's the Spanish designer Peppa Gonzalez (based in London) that created these flower girl outfits. Peppa and Co is a favorite of Princess Kate who often dresses Prince George and Princess Charlotte in this brand.
