The Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly offered to play nanny at the wedding of her sister, Pippa Middleton - in order to avoid 'overshadowing' the bride.
According to reports, Catherine feels her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are too young to play page boy and flower girl at the wedding.
The Sun quotes a source as saying: "Kate wants her sister to be in the spotlight so is taking a step back. Pippa has invited everyone's children to her wedding but Kate is going to babysit all the little ones on the big day, including her own two".
The insider added: "No one is taking their nannies as Kate has offered. She wants the whole day to be all about Pippa and as smooth as possible. Pippa is quite stressed with all the wedding planning so Kate thinks this will be the best way to help. They're even thinking of not having George as a page boy or Charlotte as a flower girl as Kate feels they're too young".
The wedding of Pippa to James Matthews is due to take place on May 20, with the reception taking place at the home of the bride's parents.
Designer Giles Deacon is hotly-tipped to be creating Pippa's wedding gown, whilst iconic beauty expert Charlotte Tilbury is reportedly in charge of her bridal make-up.
Catherine's brother-in-law, Prince Harry, is reportedly planning to make his public debut with girlfriend Meghan Markle at the nuptials.
