Royal wedding ceremony: Princess Beatrice did little to help Prince Eugenie

PRINCESS Beatrice seemed to be a very laxidasical as her sister’s maid of honour but there is speculation that she was given another task on the big day.

The maid of honour is usually the one fixing the bride’s dress but that job was left to Princess Eugenie’s father, Prince Andrew, and Jack Brooksbank’s best man.

The head bridesmaid is also usually in charge of corralling the flower girls and page boys, but Lady Louise Windsor was given that task.

Even when Eugenie hoped out of the carriage it was Prince Andrew who helped her out and fixed her train.

However, it has been suggested that Princess Eugenie wanted her sister to take car of their mother, the Duchess of York.

Sarah Ferguson has had a rocky relationship with the royals since she and Prince Andrew divorced. She was caught getting her toes sucked by her financial adviser and was also outed for accepting money to provide access to her former husband.

It would make sense that her daughters would feel protective of her walking alone into the church alone.

Beatrice also delivered a beautiful reading, a passage from The Great Gatsby.

Beatrice did step up at the end of the ceremony, holding Eugenie’s train and she climbed in an Aston Martin.

The two sisters are very close so it is hard to imagine Princess Eugenie having anyone else as her maid of honour.

It was a world away from when Kate Middleton got married and her sister, Pippa, stole the show during her stint as maid of honour.

She not only took care of her sister’s long train but also kept the flower girls and page boys in line.
