Bridesmaids are always children
Royals brides are always accompanied by a group of younger girls—usually between the ages of 10 and 12—as bridemaids. The Queen had eight bridesmaids and Diana had five, ranging in age from 5 to 17. Kate’s bridal party was even younger and included William’s goddaughter toddlers Grace van Cutsem and Camilla’s granddaughter Eliza Lopes (Camilla’s granddaughter).
It has been reported that Princess Charlotte and Prince George will have a role in Meghan and Harry’s wedding, so be prepared for an overdose of royally adorable tykes stealing the spotlight as they walk down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel. There is a possibility Meghan will break with tradition just as Kate did when chose her sister Pippa Middleton as her maid of honor who holds the dubious distinction as the oldest ever royal bridesmaid at the ripe old age of 27. Meghan’s half-sister, publicity-hungry Samantha Grant, isn’t even invited to the wedding, but the duchess-to-be may tap one of her close friends for the honor.
