Three-year-old Princess Charlotte will be one of six young bridesmaids at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Kensington Palace has said.

Her elder brother, Prince George, aged four, will be a page boy alongside three other young boys.

So far, the details of the bridesmaids’ dresses and the page boys’ uniforms remain under wraps.

Ms Markle, 36, will not have a maid of honour as she wanted to avoid choosing just one of her closest friends.

As well as his niece and nephew, Prince Harry has picked three godchildren – three-year-old Florence van Cutsem, two year-old Zalie Warren and Jasper Dyer, six – to have starring roles on his big day.

Ms Markle’s goddaughters, Remi Litt, six, and her elder sister, Rylan, seven, will also be joining the procession of bridesmaids.

And the three children of one of her best friends, Jessica Mulroney – Ivy, four, and seven-year-old twins Brian and John – will complete the picture.

Jessica, a stylist, is married to Ben Mulroney, a Canadian TV host and son of former Canadian prime minister, Brian Mulroney.

She was photographed arriving at Heathrow Airport with her family on Tuesday night.

Prince George, the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will have experience to lean on – he was page boy at his aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews last year.

His sister, Charlotte, a bridesmaid at her aunt’s wedding, recently showed she was undaunted by the limelight when she visited her little brother, Prince Louis, at hospital after his birth.

With the world’s cameras trained on her, she seemed to enjoy the attention, waving sweetly and smiling at the bank of photographers.
