Are we allowed to say that the above picture from the official portraits of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (now, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) wedding is our favourite of them all? While the portrait the newly-wedded royals took with their Bridesmaids and Page Boys are beyond adorable, it also warms our hearts that the Duke and Duchess have personal relationships with their parents and therefore made these little ones part of their big day.
Other than Prince George and Princess Charlotte, here’s a rundown on the other eight lovable tots:
You may recognise them as the two boys who grinned ever-so-widely while holding Meghan Markle’s train down the aisle. 7-year-old twin brothers, Brian and John Mulroney are sons of Meghan Markle’s best friend, Jessica Mulroney. They’re also the grandsons of former Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney.
4-year-old Ivy is the little sister of Brian and John Mulroney, daughter of Canadian host, Ben Mulroney, and stylist, Jessica Mulroney,
The Mulroneys allegedly hosted Harry and Meghan for dinners in the home in Canada while the Prince visited Meghan Markle in their early dating days when they didn’t want to risk being spotted out in public. It was then when the kids got close to the royals.
Godson to the Prince, 6-year-old Jasper Dyer is the son of Mark Dyer and Amanda Kline.
Mark Dyer and Prince Harry go way back—ready? For starters, Mark was a former Welsh Guards officer and equerry to Prince Charles. He was then appointed by Prince Charles to keep an eye on his boys (more so, Harry) when Princess Diana passed away in 1997. He has since been and still is a mentor, father-figure, and friend to Prince Harry.
Remember Grace van Cutsem, the little girl who stole the show at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011 when she covered her ears as the couple kissed? Well, this is her cousin, Florence van Cutsem.
While Grace looked less than pleased, 3-year-old Florence won the hearts of many with her sweet smile in the official portrait with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Florence is the daughter of Nicholas and Alice van Cutsem, who are very close friends with Prince Harry. The little girl is also the Prince’s goddaughter.
The youngest of the bridal party, and also Prince Harry’s goddaughter, is 2-year-old Zalie Warren.
The tiny tot is the daughter of Jake and Zoe Warren. While Jake grew up with Prince Harry and went to school together, he was also one of Princess Diana’s godsons.
Remi, 6, and Rylan, 7, are affectionately referred by Meghan Markle as her “fairy goddaughters” in an Instagram post (now deleted by former Suits actress).
The gorgeous sisters are daughters of one of Meghan Markle’s longest and closest friends, Benita Litt, co-founder of Legend of Lido. The Duchess have spent family holidays, and been on various vacations with Benita Litt.
