It's confirmed! Meghan Markle won't be having a maid of honor for her wedding
Meghan Markle will not be having a maid of honor for her royal wedding which is set to take place on May 19.
For a long time, there has been a debate on who would be the maid of honor for Meghan Markle during her royal wedding to Prince Harry and now we finally have an answer! To everyone's surprise, Meghan has decided to not have a maid of honor for the wedding even though her fiancé, Harry has already asked his brother, Prince William to be the best man.
“She has a very close-knit circle of friends and she didn’t want to choose one over another,” a palace spokesman of the couple 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.” Unlike the traditional American-style wedding, things are a bit different when it comes to the royal wedding.
Usually, they have younger attendants who serve as page boys and bridesmaids. The palace revealed that Meghan will be joined by Prince George and Princess Charlotte on her big day before she walks into the chapel. The names of her page boys and bridesmaids will be released in the days before the wedding.
Many thought that there was a possibility Meghan would ask Kate Middleton to be her maid of honor as the two seemed to have made a strong bond in the few months they had known each other. On the other hand, there were quite a few contenders who stood out to be chosen as the maid of honor for her royal wedding.
Among this, Jessica Mulroney, her friend from Toronto, who also played the part of Cupid in the love story of Harry and Meghan was the first pick by people. While others thought that Meghan's celebrity friends like Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, or one of her 'Suits' costars, Sarah Rafferty or Gina Torres could possibly take on the role. Looking at the long list it does not come as a surprise that Meghan would choose to not have a maid of honor than to upset any one of them.
The news comes after the palace announced that Prince Harry had asked Prince William to be his best man, just like Harry was at Prince William's wedding. "The Duke of Cambridge is honored to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St George's Chapel, Windsor on May 19th," the tweet by palace read.
