The world is majorly anticipating the royal wedding on May 19, but on this side of the pond, there is another high-profile wedding to look forward to this year: Paris Hilton's. It's not totally clear when the American heiress will walk down the aisle, but now, we do know that she'll be preceded by an adorable flower girl in her niece, Lily-Grace.

“I think Lily-Grace definitely will be [a flower girl],” Paris's sister, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, told PEOPLE of her 10-month-old daughter's role in the event. “I don’t think Teddy will be walking yet," she said of her 11-week-old, who will likely get to hang out and watch the wedding in what's bound to be a gorgeous party dress.

Though the details haven't been confirmed by Paris herself, it would make certainly make sense that her niece took part in the wedding given how close they are. “Lily-Grace gets excited when Aunt Paris comes over because she loves animals and Paris always has her dogs with her,” said Nicky, noting that Paris flew in to be with her when Teddy was born. “Every time Paris is in New York, she makes a point to come visit the girls every day. It’s very sweet.”

The eldest Hilton sister got engaged to actor Chris Zylka in Aspen over the holidays. He popped the question while the two were on the ski slopes with a 20-karat, $20 million ring. In true Paris Hilton fashion, she plans to wear at least three dresses to her wedding, where Kim Kardashian West is expected to be a guest.

In addition to Lily-Grace earning the honor of flower girl, the role of ring bearer has also been filled—by one of Paris's dogs, of course. Last month, Paris mentioned that she'd like to include her dogs in the ceremony — as long as one of them can learn to carry a ring down the aisle.
