Meghan Markle will not have a maid of honour when she marries Prince Harry today. While Harry will be accompanied by his best man and brother Prince William, Meghan has instead opted for a number of bridesmaids.

Jason Knauf, communications secretary to Prince Harry said: “She has a very close-knit group of friends and did not want to choose one over the other.”

Megan’s bridesmaids include three-year-old Princess Charlotte, while 4-year-old Prince George is set to be one of Harry’s page boys.
