Ten kids set to steal royal show

The Southland Times - - News -

When the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge mar­ried, one lit­tle brides­maid stole the show, crossly cov­er­ing her ears from the noise of the crowd.

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot on Satur­day, they will have no such wor­ries af­ter choos­ing chil­dren who are more than used to bask­ing in the lime­light.

Ten girls and boys take a star­ring role in the royal wed­ding, from Prince Ge­orge and Princess Char­lotte to a host of Amer­i­cans who are al­ready so­cial-me­dia stars.

Jes­sica Mul­roney and

Benita Litt, Markle’s friends, will watch on proudly as five of their chil­dren take roles in

the bridal party, join­ing Prince Harry’s god­chil­dren for the big day.

Not only are the three Mul­roneys al­ready Instagram stars, their moth­ers – a stylist and a hand­bag de­signer – bring im­pres­sive fash­ion cre­den­tials to the day.

Their in­volve­ment, as well as Markle’s, could en­sure that the brides­maids and page­boys are dressed in mod­ern out­fits, un­like royal wed­dings in re­cent his­tory.

Prince Harry has pre­vi­ously told of his be­muse­ment at be­ing dressed up in ‘‘bizarre’’ out­fits as a child, and ap­peared at the wed­ding of Earl Spencer, his un­cle, in a wide­brimmed hat, frilly shirt and satin sash.

The three chil­dren of Meghan Markle’s friends Jes­sica and Bene­dict Mul­roney have roles to play in this week­end’s royal wed­ding.
