Who are King Charles's Pages of Honour?

Prince George of Wales

Prince William and Kate Middleton's oldest son has been chosen for the important role, especially as second in line to the throne.

George has always confidently taken part in royal ceremonies and its expected he will play the most prominent role out of the eight.

It's believed siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will also join the royal procession back to Buckingham Palace.

Lord Oliver Cholmondeley

Not an official family member, Lord Oliver Cholmondeley is the 13-year-old son of close family friends 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley (Lord Cholmondeley) and Rose Hanbury.

Their royal connections are strong with Lord Cholmondeley acting as Lord Great Chamberlain of the UK from 1990 to 2022. He has also recently been appointed as Lord-in-Waiting to the King.

His wife Rose's maternal grandmother was the late Lady Elizabeth Lambart, who was one of the late Queen's bridesmaids.

Ralph Tollemache

Ralph, aged 12, is the eldest son of Edward and Sophie Tollemache. Ralph's father Edward is an aristocrat, banker and heir apparent of Timothy Tollemache, 5th Baron Tollemache.

King Charles is also Edward's godfather and also served the Page of Honour role for the late Queen Elizabeth.

Nicholas Barclay

Aged 13, Nicholas is the son of Rose Trouton, the King's goddaughter, and solicitor Piers Barclay.

Rose is also the daughter of Colman Mustard's heir, Sarah Troughton who is Charles's second cousin.

Gus and Louis are Camilla's grandsons, the twin sons of her only daughter Laura Lopes and her husband Harry.
