Prince Harry Gave the Flower Girls a Surprise at Kate & Will's Wedding (That, Oops, Ended Up in the Pics)
During this week’s episode of PureWow’s Royally Obsessed podcast, co-hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito sat down to chat with Elizabeth Holmes, journalist and author of HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style, and Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette and author of Modern Etiquette Made Easy. Of course, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 10th wedding anniversary taking place this week, the co-hosts used the opportunity to reminisce about the royal wedding at Windsor Castle.
During the chat, the group discussed the sweet moment when bridesmaid, Grace Van Cutsem, was spotted with her hands covering her ears due to the volume of the mass crowd. At one point, she was even seen holding a toy.
Turns out, Prince Harry apparently gave out stuffed animals (including a pink worm) to help the kids with their nerves during the royal wedding. However, Van Cutsem held onto it for the formal wedding pics.
“Because the crowds were so loud, Harry brought stuffed animals and one of them was a little pink worm,” Meier said during the interview. “And the children were supposed to leave it before they had any pictures or were in public. But she was so taken by the crowds that she brought out the pink worm. So, you can spot the little pink worm in some of the photos which is just another human sweet moment.”
What a great (and incredibly sweet) idea.
