The Royal Wedding Bridal Party


In the end, Charlotte almost stole the show. The little princess was the star of the bridal party that accompanied Meghan Markle to St. George's Chapel, Windsor for the Royal Wedding on May 19th 2018. Charlotte, one of six bridesmaids and four pageboys, showed again what a natural she is at the whole royal wave thing . Let's take a look at this very sweet royal wedding bridal party....

Meghan chose a very young crew to accompany her down the aisle on her big day. The youngest of the group was just two years old while the eldest were seven. But they were impeccably behaved throughout, arriving at the chapel with mums on hand to help with the rather daunting staircase. Among those juggling pre schoolers on the steps of St. George's were the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan's great friend, Jessica Mulroney.

The bridesmaids wore dresses designed by Claire Waight Kellor of Givenchy who had created Meghan's wedding dress and who came up with pretty outfits that mirrored the bride's own gown in many ways.

The girls, all aged between 2 and 7, wore bright white dresses with scoop necks and small puff sleeves. The gowns had full, mid length flared skirts with sashes. Now let's talk flowers.

 Charlotte and her companions each wore a crown of flowers in their hair featuring cream coloured roses with deep green foliage. Their posies were a mix of white and cream garden flowers and foliage, little versions of the bouquet carried by the bride.

The pageboys were in miniature versions of the Blues and Royals uniform worn by the groom, the brand new Duke of Sussex, and his best man and big brother, the Duke of Cambridge. Prince George and Jasper Dyer walked with the bridesmaids while John and Brian Mulroney carried Meghan's veil as she made her way down the aisle.

George and Charlotte joined their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and their grandfather, the Prince of Wales, as well as the Duchess of Cornwall, Doria Ragland and Lady Janes Fellowes on the steps of St. George's Chapel to waive the happy couple off on their carriage procession giving us once last chance to enjoy this bridal party. And rather lovely it all was, too.
