Millions of monarchy-loving royal watchers the world over have their alarm clocks and DVRs set for the wee hours of the morning so they don't miss a minute of the royal wedding festivities across the pond. While I myself am a true die-hard fan of all royal pageantry, I'm a fan of the old guard. (Give me a Princess Alexandra, the Lady Ogilvy or the Duke of Edinburgh -- who is a bit of a douche but he has a fascinating family lineage). I'll still be tuned in, however, to try and get a glimpse of my favorite lesser-known young cuties from the extended royal family. Here's Mr. Mickey's Guide to Blue-Blooded Cuties at the Royal Wedding.

Edward, Baron Downpatrick and His Sisters Lady Amelia and Lady Marina-Charlotte Windsor

These great-great-grandchildren of King George V are the children of the Earl of St. Andrews and are the perfect age for royal watchers to get worked up about. The Eton-educated Edward, Baron Downpatrick is 21 and a graduate of Oxford and was the godson of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. His sister Marina (named after her supremely glamorous great-grandmother Princess Marina of Greece) is 18 and is a friend of Princess Eugenie of York. She studies at St. Mary's Ascot boarding school where drama is her favorite subject. 15-year-old Amelia is the youngest and joined her older siblings for a photo shoot in last November's issue of Tatler (see photo above). All three are good-looking and well-behaved which we royal watchers love. No tabloid scandals for us!

The Honourable Margarita Armstrong-Jones


At almost nine years of age, little Margarita Armstrong-Jones is at an in-between age for royal wedding watchers -- she's too old to be a cute cuddly toddler and too young to be an ingénue suitable for matchmaking! Nonetheless, this granddaughter of the late Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon is adorable and will be a bridesmaid in the wedding. For now she's the Honourable Margarita Armstrong-Jones but in the future when her father, Viscount Linley succeeds his father the Earl of Snowdon, little Margarita will become the Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones.

Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor

Lady Louise is the 7-year-old daughter of  Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex will also be a bridesmaid. She is a student at St George's School, Windsor Castle and is ninth in line of succession to the throne.

Prince Constantine Alexios of Greece

The eldest son of Crown Prince Pavlos and Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of the Hellenes, Prince Constantine is the godson of Prince William and will be attending the wedding with his parents. He's thirteen and has one sister and three brothers, all j'adorable!

Lady Tatiana Mountbatten, Daughter of the Marquess of Milford Haven

The first Marquess and Marchioness of Milford Haven were Prince Louis of Battenberg and Princess Victoria of Hesse, a favorite granddaughter of Queen Victoria (and grandmother of the Duke of Edinburgh). In WW I King George V anglicized the Germanic names in the royal family and the Battenbergs became the Mountbattens and Prince Louis became the Marquess of Milford Haven. Tatiana Mountbatten is their great-great granddaughter and a 20-year-old stunner. Her 19-year-old brother Henry is Earl of Medina.

Edward Ines-Kerr, son of the Duke of Roxburghe

Edward has been linked to Kate Middleton's sister Pippa and is the son of the Duke of Roxburghe and his first wife, Lady Jane Grosvenor. Edward's grandfather is the Duke of Westminster and is one of the richest men in England. He's 26 and pretty adorable for an upper cruster. Edward's older sister Rose (pictured with him above) is Viscountess Grimston and was a bridesmaid at the wedding of William's uncle, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

George Percy, Son of the Duke of Northumberlund

The cute blonde son of the Duke of Northumberland was flat mates with Kate's sister Pippa and is heir to a title that's been in the Percy family since the 1760s.
