If you’re anything like us, you’ve been sipping tea while watching the family drama unfold in the days leading up to the Royal Wedding. Earlier this month, the Palace announced that Meghan Markle’s father would be walking her down the aisle on May 19, but after a series of strange publicity stunts, we’re now left to wonder if he will even be attending. As for the rest of the royal wedding party, however, it had remained a mystery until now. The bridesmaids and page boys have finally been announced.
In a statement released earlier today, the Palace revealed the 10 people who will accompany Ms. Markle and Prince Harry at their wedding on Saturday. There will be six bridesmaids and four page boys, all under the age of seven. As expected, Princess Charlotte and Prince George will be front and center. Having already been involved in their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding, everyone is confident they know what they’re doing. Baby brother Louis, who was born on April 23, will not be in attendance.

Her Royal Highness will be joined by two of Prince Harry’s goddaughters, 3-year-old Florence van Cutsem and 2-year-old Zalie Warren, and two goddaughters of Markle, 6-year-old Remi Litt and 7-year-old Rylan Litt. Ivy Mulroney, the 4-year-old daughter of Markle’s close friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney, will also be a bridesmaid. Prince George will be joined 6-year-old Jasper Dyer, godson of Prince Harry, as well as Mulroney’s 7-year-old sons Brian Mulroney and John Mulroney.
While Markle previously announced that she will not have a maid of honor, as she did not want to choose between her very close-knit group of friends, her mother, Doria Ragland, will reportedly escort her to the chapel. Ragland was seen flying out of Los Angeles yesterday. Prince Harry, of course, has chosen his older brother William for his best man, but it is still unknown who his ushers will be.
