Having opted not to bring the newest addition of the Royal family to the big day, the mother-of-three ensured her two older children were on their best behaviour as they prepared  to undertake pageboy and bridesmaid duties.  The Duchess switched seamlessly to chaperone mode, as she clutched the hands of the little flower girls – which included her own daughter Princess Charlotte – guiding them up the steps and readying them for the ceremony.
