Who can forget the grumpy flower girl who became the breakout star of William and Kate's wedding? When we weren't being wowed by the celebrity guestlist, frame-worthy photos, and that newlyweds kiss, all eyes were on young Grace and her now-famous pained expression that had us all saying "me".

So naturally, the adorable Grace was called in to be a flower girl on the Duke and Duchess's big day.
