Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and Kensington Palace have all been pretty tight-lipped about the Royal Wedding so far—we know the cake, the florist, and the music, and that's about it—but now that it's just two weeks away, more details are finally emerging.
On Friday, May 4, according to The Telegraph, a palace spokesperson revealed a lot of news, including confirmation that Meghan won't have a maid of honor. She'll have support from her closest friends on the big day—she just couldn't play favorites.
“She has a very close-knit circle of friends, and she didn’t want to choose one over another,” the spokesperson said. “All have been actively involved in helping her prepare for the day and will be there in the days beforehand. She’s very happy to have their support.”

How diplomatic! This news comes after much speculation of who her maid of honor would be. Many thought the role might go to her longtime friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney or to actress Priyanka Chopra. As for the rest of the bridal party, we won't learn the final list of names until the week of the wedding.
Page boys and flower girls will also have a role, though it remains unclear exactly who they'll be. But it seems likely that Princess Charlotte and Prince George are on the short list, no?
As for Harry, his brother Prince William will be his best man. The palace spokesperson said via a press release that Harry is "keen" to involve his mother's side of the family at his wedding and has invited Princess Diana's three siblings. Her older sister, Lady Jane Fellowes, will give a reading. "Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day," the spokesperson added.
“This wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes royal weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle."
We'll have to wait and see how it all turns out until May 19.
