All eyes are obviously fixated on royal bride Princess Eugenie as she makes her way down the aisle at St. George's chapel, but her sister and maid of honor, Princess Beatrice, also has a starring role in the big day.

Outfitted in a royal blue, Ralph & Russo boatneck top with a matching blue and purple headband, Beatrice, 30, arrived to St. George's Chapel with her mother, Sarah Ferguson. She will stand out as the maid of honor/chief bridesmaid in Eugenie's mini, eight-person wedding party, of which Prince George and Princess Charlotte are members. She also helped escort her cousin's children, Savannah and Isla Phillips and Mia Tindall, as well as Eugenie's goddaughter, Maud Windsor; Theodora Williams, daughter of singer-songwriter Robbie Williams; and Louis de Givenchy, son of J.P.

Morgan exec Olivier De Givenchy.

Additionally, Beatrice read an excerpt from The Great Gatsby during the ceremony.

Eugenie's decision to have a maid of honor defies British bridal party tradition—typically only young girls and boys step in as mini bridesmaids and page boys, respectively (hence why George and Charlotte have made frequent appearances lately). However, taking a cue from Kate and Pippa Middleton, Eugenie declared her older sister as her chief bridesmaid. The Royal Family confirmed Beatrice's role just two days before the wedding, and, given the pair's close relationship, the decision was only natural.

"Euge is amazing," Princess Beatrice formerly gushed to British Vogue during a joint interview with her sister. "She's a very modern bride."
