We’re now mere days away from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry marrying. While very few weddings will be as grand and as closely watched as their affair there is one in particular that will inevitably draw similarities: the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s.

When Prince William wed Catherine there was the inevitable slew of stories about the bride’s gown and the groom’s handsome suit, however, one person, in particular, came very close to overshadowing their spotlight. The person? Maid-of-honor and sister to the bride, Pippa Middleton. Pippa wore a white Alexander McQueen dress designed by Sarah Burton that spoke to the royal’s grand tradition of picking white for the bridal party. More than that, she became part of the historical canon of bridesmaids and page boys to British royalty that have been as noteworthy as the aristocrats themselves - Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles are all guilty of this charge.

Meghan and Harry may have negated the normal route of picking adult-aged bridesmaids and groomsmen, but they won’t be without a full wedding party. Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, Miss Florence van Cutsem, Miss Remi and Miss Rylan Litt, Miss Ivy Mulroney, Miss Zalie Warren, Master Jasper Dyer and Master Brian and Master John Mulroney will all be taking part in the ceremony.
