Pippa Middleton Brings Part of the Royal Wedding to Her Own Wedding

Pippa Middleton may have graduated from the world‘s most famous bridesmaid to a bride, but she still brought a piece of the royal wedding to her own big day.

Pippa wore something old and sentimental—the same pear-cut diamond drop floral motif Robinson Pelham earrings she wore to sister Kate Middleton‘s 2011 nuptials, in which she served as her maid of honor.

The Duchess of Cambridge had also worn earrings by the designer when she married Prince William. Hers featured an acorn and an oak leaf, which are part of the Middleton family’s coat of arms.

The jewelry pieces were gifts from the sisters’ parents, Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton, and were commissioned for the royal wedding.

Kate did not wear her royal wedding earrings or other Robinson Pelham jewelry at Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews Saturday. She sported pink Kiki McDonough earrings, which matched her blush Alexander McQueen dress.

Both sisters wore dresses by the late designer’s label at the duchess’ royal wedding.

While Kate was not part of Pippa’s bridal party, she did help escort the flower girls and page boys, which included her and Williams’ kids Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 2, and also helped her sister adjust her dress—returning the favor from her wedding.

Prince George Was an Adorable Page Boy Just Like Dad Prince William Was as a Child

He gets it from his daddy!

Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s eldest child, son Prince George, was just as cute as his father was some 30 years ago when he served as a page boy at his aunt Pippa Middleton‘s wedding to James Matthews Saturday. The 3-year-old’s sister Princess Charlotte, 2, was also part of the bridal party.

George wore a bespoke long-sleeve buttoned white shirt with gold silk breeches and white tights by Spanish retailer Pepa & Co. Charlotte and the other bridesmaids wore dresses by the brand. All the outfits were custom-made.

When he was a kid, William served as a page boy at his uncle Prince Andrew‘s wedding to Sarah Ferguson in 1986, wearing a sailor outfit, in true ’80s style. And like many boys at weddings, he did not seem very excited to be there.

William also served as a page boy at the 1988 wedding of Camilla Dunne and Rupert Soames, a grandson of former U.K. Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The prince wore a white button-down shirt, high-waist cream pants and pastel pink suspenders to match the bridesmaids’ dresses.
