LONDON (NYTIMES) - None of the bridal party in Saturday's (May 19) royal wedding will be over five feet tall.
Bridesmaids in royal weddings are almost always children, and very rarely adult women. Pippa Middleton's role in William and Catherine's 2011 wedding was a rare exception.
1. PRINCESS CHARLOTTE, AGE 3
The most famous person in Ms Meghan Markle's tiny posse will be the bridegroom's niece and the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Catherine.
2. FLORENCE VAN CUTSEM, AGE 3
Florence is one of Prince Harry's goddaughters. Her parents are his friends Nicholas and Alice van Cutsem.
3. ZALIE WARREN, AGE 2
Zalie is also Prince Harry's goddaughter. Her parents are his friends Zoe and Jake Warren.
4 AND 5. REMI LITT, AGE 6, AND RYAN LITT, AGE 7

6. IVY MULRONEY, AGE 4
Rounding out the group of bridesmaids is Ivy, the daughter of one of Ms Markle's best friends, stylist Jessica Mulroney. Ivy's father is Mr Ben Mulroney, a Canadian television host and son of the former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney.
THE PAGE BOYS
