It was a happy and joyous day in Windsor today. As we expected, Charlotte and George looked just charming for their Uncle Harry’s wedding to Ms. Meghan Markle.
Below we see the young bridesmaids arrive on the front steps of St. George’s Chapel with the help of the bride’s best friend and stylist, Jessica Mulroney. Ms. Mulroney is in blue and holding the hand of her daughter, Ivy (4); Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is tucked just behind Jessica, with Charlotte and Florence van Cutsem (3); Zalie Warren (2) is with her mother in bright pink; and Benita Litt is seen to the right, with her daughters, Rylan (7) and Remi (6).
The Princess, along with the girls, is not shy and turns to wave at the adoring crowd outside the chapel.
We can just see Prince George beyond Charlotte above on the stairs.
Below, twins Brian and John Mulroney hold the end of Meghan’s 16.5 foot train as she enters the chapel.
In the screenshots below from the BBC News we see the girls, Florence, Charlotte and Zalie and their bouquets that match the brides.

We now take a closer look at what the Pageboys and Bridesmaids wore.
The page boys wore the Blues and Royals frockcoat, made to emulate the uniforms that Harry and William wore.
The mini-uniforms were cut and made by tailor Dege & Skinner in Savile Row. They were made from blue doeskin, a soft, medium-weight wool fabric with a short, soft nap; the boys initials were monogrammed on the shoulder straps. Below a close-up of the shoulder straps showing the monograms of Brian and John Mulroney.
Details of the embroidery sleeves, ruffles on the front and tassels along with fringe on the back of the coats shown in these close-up images:
Each of the trousers are made from a blue/black wool with three-quarter scarlet stripes; they are fastened with a leather strap. But perhaps the most important thing about the trousers? They were full-length, George wasn’t in shorts! Thank you to Hannah for her comment pointing this out!
The six bridesmaids dresses were also designed by Meghan’s dress designer, Givenchy Haute Couture Atelier’s Clare Waight Keller.
According to the Royal UK website:
“The dresses were designed to have the same timeless purity as Ms. Markle’s dress.”
Each of the dresses is made of ivory silk Radzimir, a luxurious mid-weight sculptured silk fabric made in Italy. They feature short puff sleeves and high waists; they are hand-finished with a silk ribbon bow in the back. The dresses also include pockets and pleated skirts.
The girls’ shoes are by Aquazzura, made in white leather and monogrammed with the wedding date and each of the girls’ initials on the sole of the shoe. Meghan gifted the shoes to each bridesmaid as a keepsake of the special day.
Each bridesmaid wore a crown of flowers selected by Harry and Meghan. Their bouquets mimicked that of the bride’s. Both the floral crowns and bouquets were designed by florist Philippa Craddock.
