Sweet photos of Kate Middleton as a bridesmaid have been revealed to the public for the first time.
However, much to her many fans dismay, the photos are not from her sister Pippa’s wedding!
The photos date back to 1991, and were taken when Kate and Pippa were bridesmaids at their Uncle Gary’s wedding.
Kate is aged just nine years old in the photos, and her sister Pippa is seven. Smiling in pink bridesmaid dresses, the sisters cuddle up to their mum, Carole. The photographs were taken twenty years before Kate was to become The Duchess of Cambridge in a wedding ceremony watched all over the world.
The snaps from the low-key Middleton family affair are a far cry from the 2011 royal wedding at Westminster Abbey.
A guest at the June 1991 ceremony told The Sun, “It is amazing to think this is the first footage of both Kate and Pippa walking up the aisle at a wedding.”
“You would not have thought that one of them would go on to become a Princess, with the other one also about to get married and become a Lady.”
“Back then they were just normal Berkshire girls, from a middle class family.”
“I will be watching Pippa’s wedding with interest later this year and remembering them as they were in 1991 in Burnham.”
Pippa, now 33, is engaged to her hedge-fund manager boyfriend James Matthews, 41. The couple are set to wed in May this year.
Kate won’t be taking on bridesmaid duties again, or returning the favour as Pippa’s maid of honour. It is thought that the Duchess wants to avoid overshadowing her sister on her big day.
