It’s been five years since the biggest royal wedding of our generation, and while Prince William and Kate Middleton are surely celebrating in style (maybe on another royal vacation with their little ones), we’re looking back at their wedding day and fondly remembering one little face that just couldn’t be ignored: the grumpy little flower girl.
After the joyous ceremony back in 2011, Wills and Kate made their public appearance up on a balcony, waving to the excited crowd. Beside them were two of their flower girls, in fancy tiny dresses and adorable flower crowns. While the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge waved to the people below and shared a kiss, little Grace van Cutsem was not feeling the cheers from the crowd.
The daughter of William’s close friend Hugh van Cutsem, Grace is also the Prince’s goddaughter. At the time of the wedding, three-year-old Grace expressed her displeasure by clapping her hands over her ears and wearing an expression that would make anyone cower. Coming from grumpy-faced little Grace, the pic was as adorable as it was viral-worthy.
Now, Grace van Cutsem is eight-years-old and the big sister to two little brothers, Rafe and Charlie, who hopefully make her happier than she was during that now-famous royal wedding day moment.
