The roar of the crowd at the Buckingham Palace proves to be too much for 3-year-old flower girl Grace Van Cutsem as she frowned and covered her ears when William and Kate shared their kiss.

All eyes were on Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday, April 29, but one flower girl has come out as the star of the royal wedding. Amidst the joyous atmosphere, 3-year-old Grace Van Cutsem won many over after she was captured on camera looking to be overwhelmed by the hysteria of the estimated one million people gathering at the Buckingham Palace.

The Goddaughter of William covered her ears with her hands and frowned as the roar of the crowd grew even louder when William and his new wife Kate shared their kiss on the balcony of the palace. After the kiss, the little girl was seen being comforted by the new Duchess of Cambridge, but it didn't take long for her to hold her hands over her ears again as the Royal Air Force made their ceremonial flypast.

Grace, who is tall enough to peek over the balcony, seemed to be on the verge of tears before she was ushered back into the Buckingham Palace. According to palace officials, the toddler felt poorly when she was on the balcony.

Grace is the daughter of Lady Rose Astor and Hugh van Cutsem, and is the great-great-great-granddaughter of William Waldorf Astor. She was one of the youngest bridesmaids at the wedding. The other one was Eliza Lopes, the 3-year-old granddaughter of the Duchess of Cornwall.

She is sooo ugly! Does she scare the other children at pre-school? She should wear a mask to cover her face!

She kind of looks like the Gollum. A walking advertisement against inbreeding.

spiceangele - Some children are ugly. Fact of life. Grace Van Cutsem is definitely one of them. How can you be sure she hasn't got downs? You are not her family doctor.

She is just a young beautiful child covering her ears since the air show is extremely loud. Shame on you Anne & Mike for saying she has Down syndrome or is ugly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She's still growing and not use to such a loud gathering.

I think youíll find she covered her ears during the fly past, most kids would cover their eyes if they didnít want to see the kiss, possibly the ugliest kid Iíve ever seen.
