Following in the tradition of royal brides before her, Meghan Markle will not have a bridal party filled with her nearest and dearest family and friends.
Rather, those closest to her on the day she weds Prince Harry will be a group of children close to the family that will serve as page boys and flower girls.
Those included in the wedding party are her soon-to-be niece and nephew Princess Charlotte and Prince George; Florence van Cutsem, Prince Harry’s goddaughter and Remi and Rylan Litt, Meghan’s goddaughters.
Also standing alongside Meghan are Brian, John and Ivy Mulroney, and Zalie Warren.
The Sun reported that Meghan would also not have a maid of honor to stand alongside her at the altar.
Those in the running for the job were reportedly Meghan’s best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney, actress Priyanka Chopra, Suits co-star Sarah Rafferty and actress friend Janina Gavankar.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said Meghan was having difficulty choosing one friend over the other, so she chose to not have a maid of honor at all.
The Sun reported a palace spokesman stated, “She has a very close-knit group of friends and did not want to choose one over the other.”
On the other hand, Prince Harry has asked his brother Prince William to be his best man at his wedding, returning the honor William bestowed on him when he married Kate Middleton in 2011.
CNN reported that Meghan will also break royal tradition with this bold move.
