Meghan Markle likely won’t have a traditional American-style bridal party — royal weddings usually have younger attendants who serve as page boys and bridesmaids.
But who would Meghan choose for the coveted role of maid of honour given the choice?
Here's a run down of who is in Meghan Markle's inner circle of friends - from Jessica Mulroney to Priyanka Chopra.
One of the most likely candidates is Mulroney, who is among Meghan’s closest friends from Toronto. A stylist who is married to the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, she has become Meghan’s go-to gal for all things fashion, coordinating her pre and post-Harry looks. We also know she already has Harry’s stamp of approval: The trio hung out in a private box (along with pal Markus Anderson and Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland) at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.
Roth and Meghan met as students at Northwestern University and have been friends for over a decade. “We’re the kind of friends who can be 3,000 miles away and still be talking about or thinking the same thing, and even texting each other the same thing at the same time miles away,” Roth told PEOPLE of her friendship with Markle in March 2017. Another major point in Roth’s favour? Meghan was Roth’s own maid of honour a few years back.
The fashion designer, who was previously married to Alexander Gilkes, a friend of Harry’s, is rumoured to have been the mystery matchmaker who set up Meghan and Harry on a blind date in July 2016. (The other woman who reportedly introduced the pair is mutual friend Violet von Westenholz.) She first met Meghan at a lunch in Miami, and they quickly became fast friends. “I love her to death,” Nonoo told the Evening Standard. “She is the coolest girl in the world.”
The two stars met at an Elle Women in Television event and bonded over their shared careers as actors. They even took in a performance of Hamilton together. But Chopra herself isn’t spilling any details until the big day. When asked by Harper’s Bazaar Arabia if she would be a bridesmaid in Meghan and Harry’s wedding, she played coy: “If you see me there, you’ll know.”
Rafferty and Meghan co-starred on Suits for seven seasons, playing close in-office pals Donna Paulsen and Rachel Zane. They seemed to have been friends off-set, too, posting selfies together on Instagram (back when Meghan had one!), but it’s more likely that Rafferty will be on the guest list rather than serving as Meghan’s maid of honour.
Considering Kate didn’t serve as the matron of honour for her own sister’s wedding last May, it’s safe to say that she won’t be acting as Meghan’s come May 19. However, her two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will probably be a page boy and bridesmaid, representing their family in the wedding party.
Let’s face it: It would be shocking if we saw Meghan’s estranged half-sister anywhere near St. George’s Chapel on the big day. The half-siblings are not close, and by Samantha’s own admission, haven’t spoken much since 2008. And since Meghan started dating Harry, she hasn’t hesitated to speak out about her half-sister and is even penning a tell-all book, The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister. So no — despite family ties, this one is a non-starter.
