    The bridesmaids include 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, the daughter of Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton. The princess served as a flower girl last year when Kate’s sister, Pippa, got married.

    Two of Prince Harry’s goddaughters were also announced as bridesmaids: 3-year-old Florence van Cutsem and 2-year-old Zalie Warren. Two of Markle’s goddaughters also made the list: 6-year-old Remi Litt and her sister, 7-year-old Rylan Litt, daughters of Benita and Darren Litt. Markle has previously called the girls her “fairy god-daughters,” Vanity Fair reported.

    Ivy Mulroney, the 4-year-old daughter of Markle’s best friend, Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney, and her husband, Ben, will also accompany the bride down the aisle. The Mulroney’s two sons, 7-year-old twins Brian and John, will serve as pageboys for Saturday’s festivities.

    Prince George, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest child, will also be a pageboy Saturday. He held the same role last year during Pippa Middleton’s wedding. Prince Harry’s godson, 6-year-old Jasper Dyer, was also named as a page boy.

    A spokesman for the royal family said earlier this month that Markle decided against having a maid of honor for her big day because she was wary of choosing favorites amongst her close-knit friend group, People reported.

    Prince Harry last month asked his brother to serve as his best man, seven years after he served as best man during Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton. Prince William accepted.
