It’s been five years since Prince William married the Duchess of Cambridge… but who could forget their little flower girl Grace.

All the formalities and attention obviously proved too much for little Grace Van Cutsem, who was just three at the time. 

Because what young kid wants to be standing around for that long while the adults get all the attention!

She immediately became an internet sensation – largely due to photos of her upstaging the royals’ grand kiss on the public balcony.

With her hands covering her ears to block out the RAF flyover and no doubt a bustling crowd below, her facial expression tells it all… 

Well she’s growing up quickly – she’s now eight!

And apparently she’s also been dragged into 10 more wedding ceremonies so far… Who knew she’d become a professional flower girl!
