Princess Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank is only a week away, and it looks like she's feeling super nostalgic as the big day approaches. The 28-year-old bride just shared a throwback photo of herself and her big sister, Princess Beatrice, as flower girls in their former nanny's 1993 wedding.

In a sweet Instagram post, the royal bride-to-be shared a shot from Alison Wardley's 1993 nuptials with the caption "#tbt sisterly love." The photo shows the two sisters, who are donned in little white flower girl dresses and holding circular floral arrangements, in a sweet embrace. Wardley was the princesses' nanny from 1988 (when Beatrice was born) until 1993, when she married royal bodyguard Ben Dady at St. Chad's Church in Withington, Manchester.

The two sisters have remained close throughout the years, and Beatrice will reportedly accompany Eugenie down the aisle as her maid of honor next Friday, October 12.

In addition to Beatrice, of course, many members of the royal family are expected to make an appearance at the celebration, including the bride's mother Sarah Ferguson, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Kate Middleton and Prince William, and the Windsor family. We're especially excited to potentially see Prince George and Princess Charlotte take over Eugenie and Beatrice's former roles as itty bitty bridal party members. Just imagine if Charlotte ends up carrying a similar floral hoop down the aisle! We. Will. Lose It.

Besides the royal family and bridal party members, plenty of non-royal A-listers are expected to attend the nuptials of Eugenie and Jack as well, including George and Amal Clooney, Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne, and Cindy Crawford.

Excuse us while we count down the days, minutes, seconds.
