Meghan’s friend Jessica Mulroney’s two sons will also be page boys – Brian Mulroney and John Mulroney, both seven.

Who will be Prince Harry’s best man?

Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry has asked his older brother William to be his best man at his wedding to Meghan.

Harry served as best man to the Duke of Cambridge’s wedding to Duchess Kate in 2011, so William was bound to return the favour.

The Duke of Cambridge has said he’s “honoured” to be asked to stand with Harry as he marries Markle.

A statement from Kensington Palace said: “Prince Harry has asked his brother The Duke of Cambridge to be his Best Man at his wedding to Ms. Meghan Markle.

“Prince Harry served as best man to The Duke of Cambridge at his wedding to Miss Catherine Middleton in 2011.

“The Duke of Cambridge is honoured to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St George’s Chapel, Windsor on May 19th.”

Who will be giving Meghan Markle away?

The bride’s father traditionally walks his daughter down the aisle which is due to the old-fashioned tradition of “giving his daughter away.”

At the beginning of May, Kensington Palace announced that Meghan’s dad Thomas Markle would be walking her down the aisle.

However, due to health issues Thomas will not be attending the wedding at all.

Meghan released a statement on May 17 via Kensington Palace confirming that her father will not be attending her big day.
