She didn’t have a maid of honor, but Meghan Markle still managed to pay tribute to the little ladies closest to her on her wedding day.
The Duchess of Sussex gave each of her six bridesmaids a personalized keepsake that quite literally marked the special occasion on May 19, when Markle tied the knot with Prince Harry at Windsor Castle.
Monogrammed with the date of her nuptials, the white leather Aquazzura shoes with bow closures additionally feature the recipient’s initials.
The youngsters coordinated in Givenchy dresses in ivory silk, which came with a high waist, short puff sleeves and a ribbon detail at the back. Pockets and pleated skirts completed the relaxed silhouette.
Kensington Palace explained that the frocks were designed to capture the same timeless purity as Markle’s wedding gown, also by the historic French house’s creative director, Clare Waight Keller.
Along with the shoes, the bridesmaids wore flower crowns put together by florist Philippa Craddock, with the flowers replicating those used in the bridal bouquet itself.
With their ages ranging from 3 to 7, Markle’s bridesmaids included Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, Florence van Cutsem, siblings Remi and Rylan Litt, Ivy Mulroney and Zalie Warren.
