Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally confirmed their engagement, the world is waiting for more details on what their upcoming spring 2018 nuptials will entail. One wedding detail that will be particularly fascinating - apart from her dress, of course - is who the former Suits star decides to choose as her bridesmaids.

Estranged from her only sister, half-sibling Samantha, for a decade, it is perhaps unlikely that she will be involved in any big way. So in lieu of a Pippa Middleton-esque scene-stealing moment, here are the women who might be involved on Meghan's big-day. From long-term friends to fellow actresses and even a Wimbledon star, here are the front-runners for Meghan's bridal party...

Lindsay Roth

The front-runner for maid of honour is almost certainly Lindsay Roth, who chose Meghan for the same role at her own wedding last August. The Suits actress and producer and author have been friends for 15 years, with Lindsay recently telling People magazine that Meghan is 'the same girl I met years ago'. The two met at a Toni Morrison literature class during their first year of college at Northwestern University.

As well as being her unofficial stylist, Jessica Mulroney is also one of Meghan's closest friends, after the two met when the actress relocated to Toronto to begin filming Suits. She is heavily present on Meghan's Instagram account, as is her daughter, Ivy, so we think it's highly likely that she'll have a role.

Janina Gavankar

Fellow actress Janina Gavankar has known Meghan for 15 years, with the Suits star recently gushing about their friendship in an Instagram post that read: 'Couldn't be prouder of how far we've come, and couldn't be more grateful for being able to share every step of it with you.' As a long-term pal and as someone in the same industry as her, she's got a good chance of being in the bridal party.

Priyanka Chopra4 of 6

Another actress that Meghan is good friends with is Priyanka Chopra, who she met at a dinner celebrating women in Hollywood a few years ago. After Vanity Fair ran their cover story with Meghan pegged to her relationship with Prince Harry, Priyanka defended her friend, saying she was more than just 'Harry's girlfriend'.

Serena Williams5 of 6

Someone with an outside shot at being Meghan's bridesmaid is tennis ace Serena Williams. Meghan and the Wimbledon-champion have been friends since 2014 when they met at a charity football game. Despite their reported closeness, Meghan didn't attend Serena's own nuptials earlier this year, so it might be that she doesn't have a role at the royal wedding.

Princess Charlotte6 of 6

Princess Charlotte

As the niece of Prince Harry, it would be a pretty adorable touch if Princess Charlotte was included in the bridal party. After all, she was part of her aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding earlier this year to James Middleton, so it's not like she hasn't had any practice.
