‘Frowning Flower Girl’ Saves the Day

For those more interested in pints of Boddingtons than royal-nuptial pomp, little Grace van Cutsem came to the rescue.

It’s no wonder Prince William’s cranky three-year-old goddaughter – and great-great-great-granddaughter of William Waldorf Astor — became an instant Internet sensation: As Aaron Morrisey at DCist.com noted, with a single pose, the blogger-dubbed “frowning flower girl” summed up how “most of us feel about the whirlwind, nonstop royal wedding coverage that has filled the airwaves over the past few days, weeks and months.”

Though clearly a toddler in need of a snack and a nap, young Grace looks to be far from her nursery. As might be expected, she’s now showing up to wordlessly comment on irksome everyones across the Web, from Katy Perry to Aleister Crowley to possible U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump. Especially Donald Trump.

Actually a bridesmaid – traditional British weddings don’t have “flower girls” – Miss van Cutsem is no one-trick heiress. She in fact has mastered numerous expressions of crankiness, many of which she displayed during the day’s ceremonies.
