Prince Harry 'drove 100 miles to get girlfriend Meghan'

The Duchess instead acted as an assistant by helping her sister with her wedding dress, a lovely custom lace dress by British designer Giles Deacon.

The pictures are too cute to be missed.

As per usual, Prince George, 3, and his younger sister Princess Charlotte, 2, stole the show with roles in the ceremony as pageboy and bridesmaid.

The bride was accompanied by her father, Michael, as they arrived at the church a few miles from the Middleton family home in Bucklebury.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge stands with her daughter Princess Charlotte, a bridesmaid, following the wedding of her sister Pippa Middleton to James Matthews at St Mark's Church in Englefield, west of London, on May 20, 2017.

Middleton and Matthews will tie the knot Saturday at St. Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire.

How wonderful are these pictures?

Pippa Middleton and her new husband James Matthews face their young page boys and bridesmaids. The couple dated in 2012 before subsequently splitting.

Speculation had been rife that Pippa would waive her rumoured "no ring no bring" wedding rule for Meghan, meaning the bride-to-be had requested that guests bring only fiances or spouses. Who designed Pippa Middleton's wedding dress, you ask?

Tennis star Roger Federer and his wife Mirka were among the guests, as was reality TV personality Spencer Matthews, the groom's well-known brother and one of the stars of "Made in Chelsea".

Britain's Prince Harry (R) and Prince William attend the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews. He was also seen with his sister Princess Charlotte.

After dating a string of high-society men, Pippa made a decision to settle down with 41-year-old Matthews, who popped the question last summer after nearly two years of dating. Prince William and Kate Middleton were there, of course, as was Princess Eugenie.

Middleton wore a handsome, custom lace dress, while Matthews donned pinstriped trousers, a light blue vest and a long, black blazer. She is said to be preparing for Saturday evening's festivities. Pippa did not marry into royalty, but she is expected to inherit a Scottish title someday.

The bride's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, have had an elaborate glass marquee built on the grounds of their estate for the reception.

Kate, who was deemed "mummy for the day", was snapped shushing the gaggle of children before heading inside for the 11:30 a.m. ceremony, a source told E News.

"It is a bit startling to achieve global recognition (if that's the right word) before the age of 30 on account of your sister, your brother-in-law and your bottom", she once wrote.
