As the days tick down to Saturday’s much-anticipated royal wedding, Kensington Palace has revealed the official roles that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will play during their uncle Prince Harry’s nuptials with Meghan Markle.
The palace this morning released a statement announcing that 3-year-old Charlotte will serve as a bridesmaid and 4-year-old George will serve as a page boy during the ceremony at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, England. These are the same roles that the siblings performed during maternal aunt Pippa Middleton’s 2017 marriage to financier James Matthews. As expected, their newborn brother, Prince Louis — who will be just shy of a month old on Saturday — reportedly will not be at the wedding.
Other children joining them in the bridal party include the three offspring of Markle’s best friend, Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney: Brian and John, both 7, and Ivy, 4. The Toronto-based family was spotted this morning arriving at London’s Heathrow Airport ahead of this weekend’s festivities. Markle’s goddaughters, Remi (6) and Rylan Litt (7), and Harry’s goddaughters, Florence van Custom (3) and Zalie Warren (2), will join Charlotte as bridesmaids. Harry’s 6-year-old godson, Jasper Dyer, will round out the page boys.
Just like at Middleton’s wedding, the youngest Windsors are sure to steal some of the spotlight. As the world waits to see what the famous siblings wear on the big day, click here to see our suggestions for snazzy shoes for the ceremony.
