The kid on the left is clearly as fed up with the wedding as I am.

The bridesmaid, who is Prince William's 3-year-old god daughter, Grace van Custem, looks grumpy or confused in a lot of photos. I would grumpy and confused too if I were a 3-year-old kid in the midst of pomp, circumstance, and an international media circus.
