With just four days to go until the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, excitement is at an all-time high across the globe. And there’s been no shortage of news surrounding what is sure to be the wedding of the year.
Sadly, Meghan Markle’s father has pulled out of the wedding, announcing the news to TMZ, after it was revealed he willingly participated in staged paparazzi images and then subsequently had a heart attack.
However, in happier news, Kensington Palace has just announced the names of the six bridesmaids and four page boys who will be part of the official wedding party this coming Saturday.
Princess Charlotte will be by her future Aunty’s side on the day, and will be joined by Florence van Cutsem, 3, and Zalie Warren, 2, Prince Harry’s goddaughters, as well as Remi and Rylan Litt, 6 and 7 respectively, who are Meghan’s goddaughters and Ivy Mulroney, 4, the daughter of Meghan’s best friend Jessica Mulroney.
On the page boy front, Prince George, 4, has been named, alongside Prince Harry’s godson Jasper Dyer, 6, and Jessica Mulroney’s sons Brian and John, both 7.
Last month it was announced that Prince William had been asked to be Prince Harry’s best man, whilst back in March a spokesperson for Kensington Palace confirmed that Meghan would not have a maid of honour as “she has a very close-knit circle of friends and she didn’t want to choose one over another. All have been actively involved in helping her prepare for the big day and will be there in the days beforehand.”
Can it be Saturday already?!
Ahead of the big day, see the Instrument of Consent signed by Queen Elizabeth which formally indicates her approval of the marriage.
