Last weekend saw yet another royal wedding take place at Windsor Castle - the marriage of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston.
And plenty of senior royals attended, including the Queen, Prince Harry, Prince Philip and Princess Beatrice.
Of course, actress Sophie Winkleman - Claudia's sister - was there too, as sister-in-law to the bride. Sophie is married to Lady Gabriella's brother, Lord Frederick Windsor.
But while it was a very special day for the entire family, Sophie has admitted that she was actually relieved when it was all over - for a very relatable reason.
Sophie and Lord Frederick's daughters, Maud, who is five, and Isabella, 3, were bridesmaids on the big day, following their auntie up the alter at St. George's Chapel.

And Sophie admitted that seeing her children play such a big role on such a public stage was so nerve-wracking, that she was glad when it was over.
She told the Daily Mail, "It’s nerve-racking being the mother of bridesmaids because you have no clue what they are going to feel like doing while they’re walking up the aisle.
"So while I enjoyed every minute of my sister-in-law’s day, I was incredibly relieved as a mother that it’s all over."
We're sure many mum's can identify with that statement!
Sophie - otherwise known as Lady Frederick Windsor - also revealed that she too paid a special tribute to the newlyweds at the royal wedding reception.
Whilst opening the London Art Biennale in aid of Age UK, she told Sebastian Shakespeare, "I sang one of my sister-in-law’s favourite songs, Will You Love Me Tomorrow,
"There were a few tears, but I’m not sure if it was because they were moved or wanted me to stop!"
It's been around a year and a half since Sophie was badly injured in a car crash, which saw her face weeks of recovery at home.
Following the accident, Prince Charles kindly shared his personal chef with Sophie, Frederick and their children, in order to make life easier while she recuperated.
