And in that moment, we were all Prince Harry.
All eyes were on Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank at their nuptials last week and with good reason: the pair were absolutely adorable. From Jack Brooksbank putting on his glasses, just to see her in all her beauty gliding down the aisle, to the powerful statement she made sharing her scoliosis scars with the world, they were absolutely lovely to watch.
Now that time has passed however, keen royalists have pored over the footage and uncovered a little gem we hadn’t previously noticed before. One Twitter account honed in on Kate Middleton’s reaction to her children walking down the aisle and honestly, it made our hearts melt.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were both given the important task of being in Princess Eugenie’s bridal party. Decked out in stylish threads and bumbling behind the bride, it was impossible not to smile the moment they stepped into the church.
We weren’t the only ones however as Kate was the proudest mum ever, breaking out into a massive grin and leaning forwards to get a good look at them. A Twitter account called RoyalSourceFR luckily caught the moment and we’ve been playing the GIF on repeat since we spotted it.
We’re here for this lovely, wholesome content. We’re also totally here for the way Prince Harry snaps right to her with a big old grin on his own face as well, proving he’s just as proud of his niece and nephew as she is.
There’s a few other gems in the GIF, including the way that Princess Beatrice sticks a couple of big thumbs up at the bridal party as they trail along behind Eugenie.
And then there’s also Prince William’s reaction - or rather, his total non-reaction - which we find pretty hilarious.
We get it, Wills. Eugenie and Jack were beautiful to watch and we found it hard to look away too.
