Unfazed by all the fuss, how the bridesmaids and pageboys stole the show at the royal wedding

Unfazed by all the fuss, how the bridesmaids and pageboys stole the show at the royal weddingIt 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, Princess Charlotte 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 gathered together by their mothers and herded up the steps to the chapel. The Duchess of Cambridge took charge and – holding her daughter’s hand, and that of three-year-old Florence van Cutsem – led the way into the chapel, while Ms 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 Prince Harry’s close friend Jake Warren) brought up the rear with two-year-old Zalie.

Twins Brian and John Mulroney, seven, had the important job of accompanying Meghan up the aisle. The boys, wearing frock-coats made to look like miniature versions of the Blues and Royals worn uniform by Prince Harry, proudly held a corner each of Meghan’s train, as designer Clare Waight Keller adjusted it on the steps.

Once inside the church, the children were ushered asid

Hawaii lava flow engulfs more homes as ash plume ascends

Hawaii lava flow engulfs more homes as ash plume ascendsBy Terray Sylvester PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) - New, fast-moving lava poured from the flank of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano on Saturday, destroying four more homes on the Big Island after a second explosive eruption shot a nearly two-mile-high (10,000 foot) ash plume from the crater. Molten rock from two huge cracks formed a single channel and traveled 1,000 feet in under an hour, twice the speed of previous flows of older lava that have torn through homes, roads and tropical forest for over two weeks, the County of Hawaii's Civil Defense Agency said. The new lava, which is flowing east underground from the sinking lava lake at Kilauea's summit, is expected to create more voluminous flows that travel further, threatening homes and a coastal road that is a key exit route for around 2,000 residents.
