Dinosaurs are often depicted as fierce creatures, baring their teeth, with tongues wildly stretching from their mouths like giant, deranged lizards. But new research reveals a major problem with this classic image: Dinosaurs couldn’t stick out their tongues like lizards. Instead, their tongues were probably rooted to the bottoms of their mouths in a manner akin to alligators.

It was the merest flash of mischief in what was otherwise an impressively poised performance from the youngest members of the bridal party. As three vintage Rolls Royces carrying the troop of six beautifully dressed bridesmaids and two of the four pageboys rolled towards St George’s Chapel, little Princess Charlotte (who at just three is already becoming an expert performer) cheekily stuck her tongue out and waved at the crowd. The children appeared to take it all in their stride as they hopped out of the car and were quickly gathered together by their mothers and herded up the steps to the chapel, going as fast as their little legs could carry them. The Duchess of Cambridge took charge and – holding her daughter’s hand, and that of three-year-old Florence van Cutsem – lead the way into the chapel, while Meghan Markle’s best friends Jessica Mulroney and Benita Litt followed with their daughters Ivy, four, Remi, six and Rylan, seven, and Zoe Warren (wife of Harry’s close friend Jake Warren) brought up the rear with the youngest member of the brood, two-year-old Zalie. As the bride’s car pulled up, two more little faces peered out, eager to see the crowds. Twins Brian and John Mulroney, seven, had the important job of accompanying Meghan down the aisle. The boys, wearing frockcoats made to look like miniature versions of the Blues and Royals worn by Prince Harry, proudly held a corner each of Meghan’s train, as designer Claire Waight Keller carefully adjusted it on the steps. Each Page boy had their initials embroidered in gold on their shoulder straps, while the bridesmaids wore ivory silk dresses with little puffed sleeves, hand finished with a double silk ribbon tied in a bow. As a keepsake for the special day, each of the girls wore leather shoes monogrammed with their initials and the wedding date. Once inside the church, the children were quickly ushered aside by the Duchess of Cambridge, who then – with the other mothers – took her seat alongside the Duchess of Cornwall. As the bride arrived at the threshold of the chapel, the excitement grew too much for one of the Mulroney twins, who couldn’t contain his awe when he saw the hundreds of people waiting for him to perform his big moment inside. Peeking around Meghan, his mouth open wide in amazement as he took it all in. The bride made her way gracefully down the aisle towards her father in law, on what could have been a rather lonely walk had it not been for the band of bridesmaids and page boys behind her, holding each other’s hands and diligently following in her wake.

One bridesmaid had a final job to do. Meghan looked over her shoulder and held her bouquet out for Ivy Mulroney, daughter of her best friend Jessica, who proudly took it and marched off. Their mothers, looking on proudly from their seats, breathed a sigh of relief, their little darlings had pulled it off.
