Kate Middleton's special role at friend Sophie Carter's wedding revealed

The Duchess' decision to be off duty comes after she was given the responsibility of keeping a watchful eye on her sister Pippa Middleton's bridal party during her wedding to James Matthews back in May past year.

As Carter, who has been known to join the royals on vacation and was in fact present at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding in May, is Princess Charlotte's godmother, it comes as no surprise that both her goddaughter and Prince George reprised their well-versed roles as bridesmaid and pageboy for the nuptials.

Kate looked radiant in a recycled cornflower blue Catherine Walker coat with a lace dress underneath, and a attractive flower crown to match.

Sophie Carter, one of Kate's closest friends, married Robert Suggs in a quintessential English wedding at St Andrew's church in Letheringsett, near Holt.

Robert, the groom, wore a blue tie and blue waistcoat and Kate was dressed in the exact same shade of blue, wearing a Catherine Walker coat dress and a floral headband. Pippa, who is expecting her first child anytime soon, did not attend.

Kate will no doubt have her trusty nanny, Maria Borrallo, on hand to help with baby Prince Louis, who turned five months old at the weekend, and Prince George and Princess Charlotte's school runs.

Kate and Sophie go way back and have been pictured at various events together, from Wimbledon to Christmas Day church services in Norfolk.

Upstaging the happy couple at weddings is par for the course for Prince George. Prince William also attended, opting for a traditional tailcoat.

Make sure you never miss a ROYAL story!
