Grace Van Cutsem Steals the Show

Three-year-old covers ears during royal kiss.

Hopefully one day Grace Van Cutsem will write a tell-all about what was on her mind during the royal wedding. The three-year-old bridesmaid, Prince William’s goddaughter, covered her ears during the long-awaited balcony kiss—and standing directly in front of bride Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Van Cutsem was in every shot. Within minutes, Van Cutsem became an Internet meme. Either the bride didn’t notice Van Cutsem’s annoyed face or didn’t care, because Catherine bent over only seconds later to point out to Van Cutsem the Royal Air Force jets flying above.
