Prince George and Princess Charlotte will reportedly reprise their roles as page boy and flower girl later this month, as they are set to play a very important part in their uncle Prince Harry's wedding day.
Prince Harry’s Press Secretary has confirmed that Meghan Markle will be accompanied by bridesmaids and page boys on their wedding day on May 19.
A source has also revealed that the former actress had found it too tricky to choose just one of her close friends to be her Maid of Honour – so has chosen not to have one.
‘The Bridesmaids and Page Boys are all children. Ms Markle will not have a maid of honour. She has a very close group of friends and didn’t want to choose one over the other,’ they said.
‘They have been actively involved in helping her prepare for the day and will be there with her the day before in London. She will be pleased to have their support on the day but they have no official role.’
Although Kensington Palace has not yet announced who the bridesmaids and page boys are that will join Meghan as she walks down the aisle in Windsor, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are most likely to be a shoe-in for the roles.
The young royals have obviously hit it off with their uncle’s wife-to-be, and they are his only niece and nephew, along with newborn Prince Louis.
While Meghan and Harry revealed their plans to start a family ‘in the near future’, it seems that in the mean time Meghan has been getting to know her future little niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte since moving to the UK.
At the time of the wedding announcement, a Kensington Palace spokesperson told the paper: ‘The wedding will be a family event. You can expect the family to be involved.’
Prince George and Princess Charlotte first took on the important wedding party roles in May 2017, when the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton chose the two little ones to play a part in her wedding to James Matthews.
Prince George and his sister Charlotte were snapped outside the church looking very sweet in their smart page boy and bridesmaid outfits that matched the rest of the wedding party.
At the time, Kate admitted she was worried about her children having such a big role in her sister’s special day, as ‘you never know what her children might do’.

Kate made the confession at Buckingham Palace’s first garden party of the season earlier this year, but there is no sign yet as to whether the Duchess has similar fears for Prince Harry and Meghan’s big day.
Kate will certainly have her hands full on May 19 as she has just given birth to her third child, Prince Louis Arthur Charles, who arrived on April 23.
