Royal Wedding Kiss & Frowning Bridesmaid: YouTube Highlight

Yesterday’s Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was pure delight to many people. It seems though, that one person wasn’t quite so impressed and has gathered a huge amount of media attention. For the Royal Wedding kiss on the balcony one frowning bridesmaid has become a YouTube highlight.

We’ve already told about yesterday’s special Google Doodle for the Royal Wedding, Twitter and Facebook statistics, what the trending terms were on Twitter and also how the YouTube live streaming record was smashed by the Royal Wedding but little Grace van Cutsem is only 3 and has become another hit from the big day, with over 600,000 views of the YouTube video already. The flower girls at the wedding were always going to receive a lot of attention, although little Grace seems to be grabbing more than her fair share and grabbing hearts in the process.

After the wedding when the happy couple made an appearance on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, along with other members of the wedding party, over 2 billion across the world shared the joy of the couple as they kissed. Little Grace though was clearly rather less impressed than the cheering crowds, and stood just in front of the bride scowling and covering her ears. The BBC video of this moment is on YouTube and you can also view it below this story.

It was a moment many will remember and an Associated Press report points out that she was probably completely overwhelmed by the hundreds of thousands of people cheering below and the sheer noise of the occasion. The kiss, or kisses, brought smiles to just about everyone, but Grace was distinctly underwhelmed although Palace officials have since said she was feeling a little poorly. It was a nice touch that on her big day the new Duchess of Cambridge was seen comforting Grace after the kiss and who could blame a 3-year-old for feeling tired and a bit grouchy.

You may also be interested in a truly magical moment of the day when a verger in Westminster Abbey was caught on camera cartwheeling down the aisle after the guests had left, probably with sheer exuberance and relief that the event had passed smoothly. What are your thoughts on the wedding and little Grace’s reaction?
