Prince George and Princess Charlotte are set to be the stars of their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding next month. The older sibling will be the page boy and his younger sister will be a bridesmaid, Kensington Palace announced today. (Looks like she’s too cool to be a flower girl.)
Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, is set to wed financier James Matthews on May 20. The ceremony will take place at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, near the Middletons’ hometown of Bucklebury, England, People reports. It’s the same place where the royal family went to church on Christmas Day.

The palace announced that family and close friends are on the guest list. George and Charlotte’s parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, will be in attendance, and so will Prince Harry. There’s not word yet whether his much buzzed-about girlfriend Meghan Markle will also attend.
News of Middleton and Matthews’ engagement broke in July 2016. The groom-to-be reportedly proposed to his longtime girlfriend during a weekend trip in England’s Lake District. The diamond ring is said to be worth over $250,000.

While Kate’s children will have a big role the wedding, she might not. Royal author Judy Wade speculates that the Duchess might decline being Maid of Honour to avoid “stealing the spotlight” when Pippa ties the knot. (Pippa was famously Kate’s Maid of Honour in 2011.) Kate was, however, at her sibling’s “low-key” bachelorette party in the French Alps last month.
