According to sources at the palace, Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton is not going to be Meghan Markle’s bridesmaid at the actress’ wedding with Prince Harry. We have also learned why that is the case!
Despite the fact that Meghan and her sister-in-law to be are getting along great, the Suits star is not planning on asking Kate to be by her side during the May 19 ceremony as well as in the weeks leading to it.
Apparently, the reason for that is not that the women secretly hate each other or that royal tradition forbids it.
It’s not even the fact that Meghan has another BFF she wants to be her bridesmaid instead.
The reason is very simple – Kate is set to give birth to her and William’s third child in April which means that she will be very unstable in May.
Going from carrying a baby and taking care of the newborn takes some used to and is super exhausting.
To have her worry about bridesmaid duties on top of that would be way too much to handle!
But one source claims Kate is not going to be snubbed from the ceremony as ‘Meghan will find another role for her.’
Meanwhile, there is no doubt that William will be his brother Harry’s best man.
His and Kate’s kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have roles as well – page boy and flower girl, of course!
That being said, allegedly, Meghan will have her stylist and best friend, Jessica Mulroney as one of her bridesmaids, the second one being Misha Nonoo, the person who actually introduced Prince Harry to her for the first time.
Some reports claim Serena Williams may join them as a third bridesmaid as well, although nothing has been confirmed as of now.
