Duchess Kate's famously perfect composure came to the fore at her sister Pippa's wedding this weekend.
The mum-of-two deftly wrangled a troupe of flowergirls and pageboys without missing a beat – even when Prince George had a meltdown outside the church.
George's naughty behaviour – nearly stepping on Pippa's dress, and bursting into tears when he was reprimanded – was no doubt the result of extreme overexcitement.
And Kate was perfectly able to settle the little ones when they got a little exuberant outside the church.
Despite being outnumbered six to one, Kate successfully guided the children of the bridal party through the entire wedding.
And she cracked a huge smile when she first saw Pippa in her finery.
It was only moments before Pippa got some of Kate's mum-treatment, with the Duchess tidying her veil ready for the ceremony.
