OWEN HUMPHREYS/AFP/Getty Images Bridesmaids and page boys, including John and Brian Mulroney, walk behind Meghan Markle during her wedding to Britain's Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, in Windsor, on Saturday. The latter wore a mini-military attire to match his uncle, while Princess Charlotte was clad in a dress designed by Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller, who also made Meghan's gown. It was a day on which Meghan Markle married her prince charming.
Per British tradition, royal brides and grooms are usually accompanied by young bridesmaids and pageboys at their ceremonies.
All the youngsters were ushered into a side room for the service, but when they came out Charlotte and George - both circled in the "before" photo - seemed to be missing.

In addition to Charlotte, 4-year-old Ivy Mulroney, the daughter of Markle's stylist friend Jessica Mulroney, served as a bridesmaid, as did pal Benita Litt's little girls, Remi, 6, and Rylan, 7.
Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra, US television personality Oprah Winfrey, actor George Clooney and lawyer wife Amal Clooney, footballer David Beckham and designer wife Victoria Beckham, and tennis star Serena Williams were among the first group of wedding guests to arrive and mingled in the crowd as they made their way to their seats inside St. George's Chapel.
At times it seemed as though nearly everywhere Meghan Markle went on her wedding day, a little band of helpers followed. "As a special memento, each Page has their initials embroidered in gold on their shoulder straps".More news: VK Singh holds talks in North Korea, first trip in 20 years
