The bridesmaids who helped with the train of Princess Nina at Prince Philippos of Greece's wedding were Anna and Amelia Morales.   
I especially like the design of the yellow flowers.

That's the first childhood photo of Camilla I've ever seen.  I've seen photos of her as a young woman in the 1960's but never as a child.

Zara's bridesmaids are my favorite - mostly for the simplicity of their dresses, and that they could actually be worn again by the bridesmaids!  (The peril of being an adult bridesmaid is being stuck with a fussy, long, unwearable-to-any-other-function or place, dress).

You are correct.....I was too quick:

Capt. Eric Grounds served as the groom's best man. Princess Anne's bridesmaid was her nine-year-old cousin, Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, the daughter of Princess Margaret, while her page boy was her nine-year-old brother, Prince Edward.

At the time Anne married Mark, who knew that someday she would be Lady Laurence?

Princess Beatrix had six adult bridesmaids:

Princess Christina of the Netherlands

While living in New York as Christina van Oranje, the Princess started a relationship with Cuban exile Jorge Guillermo The couple were married on 28 June 1975, civilly in Baarn and then religiously in an ecumenical ceremony in the Cathedral of Saint Martin, Utrecht. They had 3 children. In June 2018, it was announced that Princess Christina had been diagnosed with bone cancer. She died on 16 August 2019, aged 72.

Christina von Amsberg
Youngest sister of the groom, who whas born in 1945. She married Hans Hubertus Baron von der Recke (1942) in 1972 and had issue.

When I look at the photos of the weddings of the various UK and European royals, I wonder how the various little boys felt in some of the -- to my eyes, at least -- ridiculous getups they had to wear. I think here in the US, little girls who are in a wedding party have lovely frocks, but there is seldom the impetus to put boys into any sort of period costume.  There certainly have been some over-the-top outfits for boys in various royal weddings.
