Unlike in the US, where bridesmaids represent the bride's closest friends, attendants in British royal weddings tend to be children. "If you look at the royal weddings since [Queen] Elizabeth's, you will find that most of the bridesmaids are early teens or children," royals expert Marlene Koenig told T&C back in December.
Here's who served as Meghan Markle's bridesmaids:
On the bride's side, Ivy Mulroney, the four-year-old daughter of Markle's good friend Jessica Mulroney, served as a wedding attendant. When Markle was still living in Canada, she and Prince Harry reportedly attended discreet dinner parties at the Mulroneys.
"When Harry first started going to Toronto to visit Meghan, it was Ben and Jessica who had them over at their house for dinners because it wasn't easy for them to go out in public without the risk of getting spotted," an anonymous source (so take it with a grain of salt) told E! News.
"Harry's become close with their children Brian, John, and Ivy. Ivy especially is a big fan." Ivy's brothers, Brian and John Mulroney will serve as page boys.
Benita Litt's Daughters, Remi and Rylan
Of all the little girls on this list, we know the least about Benita Litt's daughters, Remi and Rylan. Litt has been friends with Markle for years, and according to her now-deleted Instagram account, Markle spent Christmas with the Litt family in 2016, calling her friend's two young children her "fairy god-daughters."
Just two years old, Zalie is the baby of the bridesmaids. She is Prince Harry's goddaughter, and the daughter of Mrs. Zoe Warren and Mr. Jake Warren.
Florence van Cutsem
Florence, the three-year-old goddaughter of Prince Harry, and daughter of Mrs. Alice van Cutsem and Major Nicholas van Cutsem also served as a bridesmaid.
