Ten kids set to steal royal show
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.
