Maud Windsor is one lucky little lady—the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and Sophie Winkleman can boast playdates with Prince George and having Princess Eugenie as her godmother. Now, earning the 4-year-old further playground cred, Maude is reportedly pegged as one of Eugenie's potential bridesmaids in her upcoming royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank October 12.

Although Palace sources haven't officially confirmed, Hello reports that, as Eugenie's only goddaughter, Maud is practically a shoe-in for the bridal party. Plus, it probably doesn't hurt that she's currently in the same class as Prince George, another likely contender for a page boy within the wedding party, at Thomas's Battersea school. The children originally played together as 2-year-olds once, her mother previously told Hello, saying that the pair "got on very well." Quite the royal network for a 4-year-old.

George's sister, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, is also expected to be a flower girl in Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank's nuptials, which will be held at St. George's Chapel. Both she and George have quite the bridal party experience under their belts, participating in Pippa Middleton's and Prince Harry's weddings, so perhaps they can show Maud the ropes. Although nothing has been verified quite yet, there's also rumors that British singer/songwriter Robbie Williams' daughter Teddy will join the bridal party ranks, along with J.P. Morgan executive Olivier de Givenchy's 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. Casual.

Perhaps most importantly (and least surprising), Eugenie has reportedly called on her older sister, Princess Beatrice, to be her maid of honor. Taking a cue from Pippa Middleton at her sister Kate's 2011 wedding, Beatrice will likely defy British royal bridal party tradition, which typically involves only children, and act as an older chief bridesmaid of sorts. Based on the bridesmaid and page boy predictions, Beatrice will be accompanied by quite the crew.
