Here’s why Prince George was told off at Pippa Middleton’s wedding

Oh George...

Oh George...

Pippa Middleton wed multi-millionaire hedge fund manager, James Matthews, on Saturday, with the couple tying the knot in St Marks Church, Inglefield, and heading back to the Middleton family home for the reception - attended by everyone from Meghan Markle to Roger Federer.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte stole the show, taking on the roles of page boy and bridesmaid in the bridal party, alongside Countess Philippa Hoyos, Lily French, Avia Horner, Casimir Tatos, Edward Sebire and William Ward – all dressed in Pepa & Co.

While Kate Middleton wasn’t officially the Maid of Honour due to royal etiquette, she still took on the role's responsibilities, staying at Pippa's side, fluffing her dress and keeping the bridal party (all under five) under control.

The Duchess of Cambridge can be seen telling the bridesmaids and page boys to be quiet as they entered the church and Prince George was seen later, being told off by his mother, after he stood on Pippa's wedding dress.

Seeing as how the dress in question was a bespoke Giles Deacon gown, expected to cost around £40,000, we’re not surprised – especially seeing how many times the gown was altered to fit her perfectly.

Luckily for everyone, there were no noticeable markings and Pippa still looked radiant, teaming her bespoke dress with a custom Stephen Jones veil, Maidenhair Fern tiara and a pair of Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes.
