Prince Harry already has his best man on lockdown (Prince William, of course!), but what about the other wedding party members set to appear at his and Meghan Markle's nuptials? As it turns out, this groom-to-be is expected to recruit his young niece and nephew for the fabulous affair. Yes, Prince George and Princess Charlotte will most likely appear at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. Here's what these pint-sized royals are expected to do.
Princess Charlotte and Prince George have some royal duties to attend to! A spokesperson for the royal family confirmed to The Sunday Times, "The wedding will be a family event." The statement read, "You can expect the family to be involved." Marlene Koenig, a British and European royalty expert, believes that includes the family's children as well, as she told Bazaar.com that she would be "shocked" if Prince George and Princess Charlotte weren't participating in the wedding, serving as an adorable page boy and young bridesmaid at the nuptials.
"George and Charlotte are Harry's only niece and nephew, so it would be a real shocker if they were not included," Koenig told the site. "In Britain, the bride goes down the aisle first, followed by attendants or bridesmaids and page boys holding the train."
Fortunately, these two royal youngsters are old pros at wedding-day duties. At their aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding back in May, Princess Charlotte served as a bridesmaid and Prince George took on page boy duties. We even caught a glimpse of their mom, Kate Middleton, wrangling this baby bridal party before the ceremony took place.
According to Bazaar.com and Koenig, Princess Charlotte is likely to don a flower-girl-style dress at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding, similar to the one she wore for Pippa's, while Prince George's ensemble will probably have more of a "military theme."
Since this is their second time walking down the ol' aisle, the prince and princess are sure to do splendidly. Plus, they have plenty of practice sessions ahead of them. "There will be several rehearsals for this wedding, as there are for all royal weddings, and I can only assume that Catherine or nanny Maria [the royal family's nanny] will spend some time talking to the children about their roles, responsibilities, as a part of the bridal party," continued Koenig. "Young kids in wedding parties will fuss and fidget. If George or Charlotte makes funny faces or does something silly, their antics will be recorded for posterity."
Hear that, kids?
