Prince George on best behaviour for Harry

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had 10 bridesmaids and pageboys for their wedding

Prince George made sure he was on his best behaviour for his uncle Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle.

A year ago the young prince received a royal telling off from his mum, the Duchess of Cambridge, after having a tantrum while on pageboy duties at the wedding of her sister Pippa Middleton.

But four-year-old George was in fine form for uncle Harry's nuptials at Windsor Castle on Saturday, where he joined nine other youngsters including his little sister Princess Charlotte in a team of mini pageboys and bridesmaids.

When the six bridesmaids and four pageboys arrived at the chapel, George and Charlotte's mum the Duchess of Cambridge was on hand to help usher the 10 children inside moments before Ms Markle arrived.

As the children were handed flowers, one of the little bridesmaids began to cry.

The Cambridges' nanny, Maria, lifted the child up to comfort her, as Prince George looked up at the tearful girl.

When Meghan appeared through the doors of the chapel, sunlight streaming in behind her, she turned to smile and wave at the children who were standing to her right behind the door.

Holding up the delicate end of her five-metre long veil were seven-year-old twin sons Brian and John Mulroney, the sons of the bride's close friend and Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney.

The twin's sister four-year-old Ivy Mulroney was among the bridesmaids, who also included Harry's goddaughters Zalie Warren, two, and three-year-old Florence van Cutsem, Ms Markle's goddaughters, sisters Remi and Rylan Litt, aged six and seven respectively.

The fourth pageboy was Harry's six-year-old godson Jasper Dyer - the son of Harry's mentor Mark Dyer.

As Ms Markle made her way down the aisle, the bridesmaids held hands as Prince George and Jasper followed behind.

Like the bride, the bridesmaids were dressed by British designer Clare Waight Keller, artistic director at French fashion house Givenchy, while the pageboys wore miniature versions of the Blues and Royals frockcoat, an old regiment of Harry's and his brother Prince William.

Each of the high-waisted dresses was sculpted in ivory silk Radzimir and featured short puffed sleeves with a double silk ribbon detail tied at the back in a bow.

After the ceremony, George huddled next to his dad Prince William at the chapel's entrance while Charlotte waved enthusiastically to the waiting crowds who were farewelling the newlyweds.
