While the world is waiting with bated breath to see what Meghan Markle will wear for her wedding to Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel on Saturday, May 19, we’d be lying if we said we aren’t equally excited to see what the couple’s wedding party will be sporting for the big day. With Prince William set to serve as Harry’s best man and Prince George and Princess Charlotte starring as page boy (or what we might refer to in the States as a ringbearer) and bridesmaid respectively, there will be no lack of sweet style on display.
When it comes to royal weddings, there is plenty of fashion protocol to follow for all those involved. For their April 2011 nuptials at Westminster Abbey, Prince William and Kate Middleton chose their siblings for best man and maid of honor duties, while youngsters like the then-seven-year-old Lady Louise Windsor and 10-year-old William Lowther-Pinkerton rounded out the wedding party. Pippa Middleton stunned in the now infamous Sarah Burton x Alexander McQueen gown (the same house responsible for Kate’s dress) and Harry looked dapper in his military uniform. The four bridesmaids, meanwhile, wore frocks by London-based occaisonwear designer Nicki Macfarlane, and the two page boys were handsome in throwback Kashket and Partners designs.
But Will and Kate weren’t the only royal duo with a fashionable wedding party. From Queen Elizabeth II’s big day to the ladies who stood by OG American royal Grace Kelly, we’re taking a look back at some of the most stylish royal bridesmaids and groomsmen. Keep scrolling to see our favorites!
