The Cutest Photos of Prince William and Prince Harry in Royal Weddings: See the Adorable Throwbacks! – PEOPLE

2 minutes, 59 seconds Read

Anyone who saw the royal weddings of Prince William and Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, knows that the littlest royals serving as bridesmaids and page boys have a way of stealing the spotlight away from even the most radiant tiara-clad bride.

But it’s hardly a surprise that the young wedding party members get so much attention; after all, Prince William and Prince Harry had some seriously memorable moments serving in wedding parties in the 1980s, wearing some very fancy attire (and occasionally pulling a silly face for the cameras). And now, Prince George is keeping that tradition going!

Look back at their adorable outfits in these cute wedding throwback photos.

Though Prince William (far right, alongside Seamus Luedecke and Laura Fellowes at Westminster Abbey in July 1986) was dressed like the little prince he was in a sailor suit and straw hat, he had the wiggles throughout the ceremony just like any other four year old — memorably pulling faces at his fellow pageboys and bridesmaids and, at one point, yawning.

Prince Harry was five years old when he served as a page boy for his uncle Charles Spencer, the 9th Earl Spencer (and younger brother of Princess Diana), when he wed first wife Victoria Lockwood in September 1989.

The memorable outfits —which included, for the boys, a ruffled, gilt-trimmed double-breasted one-piece suit with wide crimson sash and matching hat — was based upon a portrait of the 3rd Earl Spencer.

William clearly had his royal wave from a carriage down to an art, well before assuming full-time royal duty. (His uncle Prince Edward joined him and the other wedding attendants for what was sure to have been a fun ride to Buckingham Palace.)

If you didn’t already know this was the 1980s, those baby pink suspenders and matching bridesmaids’ headband might have given it away.

Prince Harry (between his cousins Eleanor and Alexander Fellowes, at the Althorp family estate in Northamptonshire) also clearly wasn’t immune from getting a little silly during the photos.

It wasn’t just William’s little sailor suit that caused a stir that day: He also got a little too close to a carriage in the processional, causing the normally unflappable Queen Elizabeth II (or Gan-Gan, as William called her) to pick up the pace and pull him out of harm’s way.

William chatted with the pink-attired bridesmaids outside of Hereford Cathedral, where the wedding took place in October 1988.

Though he did not serve in the wedding party, William looked equally sharp in his double-breasted blazer with gold buttons alongside his mother, the sister of the groom.

Bonus photo! Though neither prince was in the wedding party, their adorable pint-sized formal attire was too cute not too include. (They’re pictured alongside their parents, the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles, in 1989.)
