The daughter of Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex was seven at the time when she celebrated her cousin's wedding. The 18-year-old, who is now 16th in line to the throne, is a student at St. Mary's School in Ascot. Lady Louise will be among the thousands of students to sit her exams this summer and she will have an important decision to make later this year once she receives her results in August.

In 2014, HELLO! magazine exclusively learnt that Louise had undergone successful eye surgery to correct her squint. The royal was born prematurely which resulted in the schoolgirl developing early sight problems - something that Sophie described as a "profound squint".

Lady Louise and her brother, James, Viscount Severn participated in their first overseas engagement during a trip to South Africa in 2015. It has since been revealed that she has inherited her grandmother and late grandfather's fondness for horses.

She is currently 25th in the line of succession to the British throne. A student at Tudor Hall School in Banbury, the teenager has already had a taste of the fashion world, having attended the Dior Cruise show at Blenheim Palace last year and has modelled for a fashion show in aid of Kids Company, organised by Chelsea Ballet Schools.

Eliza, now 14, is the granddaughter of the Duchess of Cornwall and her ex-husband Andrew Parker Bowles. She was just three when she took on the role of flower girl at the royal wedding.

Her parents are Laura and Harry Lopes, who are also parents to 12-year-old twin boys Gus and Louis. Although Laura and her family keep a low-profile, Camilla's daughter clearly enjoys a good relationship with Prince William and Prince Harry.

Of being a grandma, Camilla previously said: "It's very nice because you haven’t got the full responsibility. You can give them a wonderful time, spoil them, give them all the things their parents won't allow, then give them back again."

Little Grace became an internet sensation when she appeared on the balcony with a scowl on her face, covering her ears while the newlyweds shared their first public kiss. Just three at the time, the young flower girl - now 13 - certainly managed to steal 4some of the limelight.

She is the daughter of the royal couple's friend Hugh van Cutsem - with Prince William taking on the role of her godfather. Grace has largely kept out of the public eye since her shining moment, however, her mother Rose Astor, has been keeping her Instagram followers updated on her life. She also now attends a private school near the family home in Oxfordshire.

William is the son of Prince William and Kate's former aide, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who stepped down from his role in 2013. The page boy, who was ten at the time of the wedding, is now 21. The former SAS officer is one of Prince George's godfathers, and has no doubt remained close to the royal family despite his resignation.

Tom was just eight when he sat in the carriage alongside Prince Harry in the carriage. He is the son of Princes William and Harry's former nanny, Tiggy Legge-Bourke. Tiggy, who now lives on Glanusk Estate in Wales, cared for Princes William and Harry in the nineties and retired from her royal role in 1999 when she married former British army officer Charles Pettifer. The 57-year-old joined Prince Charles' household while he and Princess Diana were separating so was a strong source of emotional support for the boys.
