Is there anything that the Duchess of Cambridge can’t do?

Pippa Middleton wed multi-millionaire hedge fund manager, James Matthews, last Saturday, with the couple tying the knot in St Marks Church, Inglefield, attended by everyone from Prince Harry to Roger Federer.

While Kate Middleton wasn’t formally a bridesmaid due to royal etiquette, she still took on a lot of the role’s responsibilities: planning the luxurious hen do, fluffing Pippa’s dress and of course keeping the bridesmaids and page boys (all under five-years-old) under control. The Duchess of Cambridge was seen quietening the group before they entered the church and giving Prince George a ticking off later after he stood on Pippa’s dress.

It has recently emerged however, that Kate also played a key role in the creative side of the wedding, lending a hand in designing the order of service.

Kate reportedly designed the front of the wedding programs, sketching the church that Pippa and James got married in.

As if that wasn’t enough, Kate also performed a reading during the ceremony, something that James is said to have praised her for in his ‘groom’ speech at the reception.

‘And to Pippa’s sister Kate, such ability – a beautiful drawing of St Mark’s church in the order of service’, he reportedly announced to his guests, according to the Sun. ‘A flawless reading and a kind loan of two adorable little ones.’
