It’s pretty much guaranteed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding will be the event of 2018. From famous Hollywood friends to royal family members, the couple are sure to invite a spectacular guest list. Here’s a guide to Harry and Markle’s wedding party.
Prince Harry’s Best Man:
Prince William is confirmed to be his brother’s right-hand on the day of the wedding. The announcement just came at the end of April, weeks before the wedding and months after speculation tat the Duke of Cambridge would take on the role.
The appointment makes sense, since Harry served as William’s best man at his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011. According to Kensington Palace, the Duke is “honored to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother” on his wedding day. Naturally, he added in a joke after the news broke: “Revenge is sweet.”
The Maid of Honor:
Meghan will not have a maid of honor or chief bridesmaid, the Palace announced.
“She has a very close-knit circle of friends and she didn’t want to choose one over another,” a palace spokesperson explained, per People. However, Meghan’s friends will still support her leading up to and during her wedding day.
It was always a possibility that Markle wouldn’t have any adult attendees in her bridal party. British and European royalty expert Marlene Koenig previously told Town & Country, “Most royal brides do not have adult bridesmaids.”
Koenig added it was particularly unlikely that Kate Middleton would step in as matron of honor, too. “It would be unusual for a royal bride to have a woman in her late 30s as a maid or matron of honor. The Duchess of Cambridge having her sister, Pippa, was unusual,” she said.
Previous contenders included her friend Lindsay Roth, designer Misha Nonoo, fellow actress Janina Gavankar, her BFF stylist Jessica Mulroney and more celebs.

Having children in the bridal party is custom to royal weddings, royal expert Koenig told Town & Country. “If you look at the royal weddings since Elizabeth‘s, you will find that most of the bridesmaids are early teens or children,” she said. Kate Middleton selected her sister, Pippa, to serve as maid of honor at her own wedding, and had four younger bridesmaids, or flower girls.
