Here's everything you need to know...

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge never fail to make viral news, and with their roles elevated this year, the royal couple are all anyone can talk about.

Prince William and Kate Middleton certainly spend the most time in front of the cameras, but it is the Cambridge children that get the most attention from Prince George knowing he’s different from his siblings to Prince Louis’ love of cuddling.

This week however, it was all about Princess Charlotte, as exciting news was announced that affected the five-year-old in particular.

Princess Charlotte had two reasons to celebrate this week as her Godfather Thomas van Straubenzee married her school teacher Lucy Lanigan-O’Keeffe.

According to The Sunday Times, the couple were reportedly set to wed in April, with Princess Charlotte originally set to play bridesmaid, with her father Prince William asked to be an usher. Due to the coronavirus outbreak however, they instead chose to tie the knot in a small ceremony at the Chelsea Old Church in late July.

If this wasn’t exciting enough for the Cambridge family, Thomas van Straubenzee and Lucy Lanigan-O’Keeffe are also expecting a child together, so there will soon be a playmate for George, Charlotte and Louis.

This is lovely.

Congratulations to Thomas and Lucy!
