London: Britainâs Prince Harry and his U.S. fiancee Meghan Markle have chosen George and Charlotte, the children of the royalâs elder brother Prince William, to be among the bridesmaids and page boys for their wedding, his office said on Wednesday.
Also selected for the much-anticipated event at Windsor Castle on Saturday are the coupleâs goddaughters and godson, and the children of one of her best friends.
Harryâs office said last week that all the bridesmaids would be children and that Markle had decided not to have a maid of honour because she could not choose between her friends.
Princess Charlotte, 3, will be joined as a bridesmaid by Florence van Cutsem, 3, and Zalie Warren, 2, Harryâs goddaughters; Remi and Rylan Litt, 6 and 7, who are Markleâs goddaughters; and Ivy Mulroney, the 4-year-old daughter of her friend Jessica Mulroney.
Mulroneyâs sons Brian and John Mulroney, both 7, will also join Prince George as a page boy along with Harryâs godson Jasper Dyer, 6.
While George, 4, and Charlotte will have roles in the ceremony at St Georgeâs Chapel at Windsor, their younger brother Prince Louis, who was born last month, will not be attending, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
George and Charlotte also acted as page boy and flower girl at last yearâs wedding of Pippa Middleton, sister of his mother Kate, to financier James Matthews.
Bridesmaid Florence van Cutsem also provides a link to William and Kateâs own wedding. Van Cutsemâs cousin Grace, Williamâs goddaughter, was a bridesmaid at their ceremony in 2011.
