In the previous discussion that started with Gawin's suggestion that Diana's maternal aunts could be invited (as was done at William's wedding), later on explained by the argument provided here: it fits with the importance of family and heritage in Harry's system.

They don't seem to have ring bearers--the boys are designated as page boys.

There have been speculations as to who the page boy(s) might be but nothing has been announced.

It seems customary to have 2 page boys in the BRF weddings. Minimum.

George of course has been 'a definite' in all the tabloids, will see if true. Harry also has a number of godchildren.

But just like bridesmaids, nothing has been confirmed.

William and Kate used one of Tiggy's sons, and the son of William Lower-Pinkerton.

If there is going to be a gaggle of little bridesmaids then there's sure to be a couple of young page boys. I'd almost put money on them being George and Jasper Dyer, who is more or less the same age and Harry's godson, but does Meghan have any friends/relatives with young sons? I'll be a bit disappointed if almost all the attendants come from the groom's side, lovely though all those candidates are!

Of her close friends, kids we know of:

-Ivy (almost 5) who seems a very likely choice for bridesmaid.
-the couple also have twin sons Brian and John who are 8
Pic of all three kids

-we know she has two daughters that Meghan calls her fairy goddaughters

Lindsay Roth-
-has a son but is a newborn, born in January I believe

Heather Dorak-
-like Lindsay she has a little boy but he looks maybe 2 at most so too young

Some of her co-workers have kids. I don't know if she is close enough to her co-workers that she would include their kids though. Gabriel has a son Luca who is 4 (his daughter is 11, a bit old).Sarah has a 4 year old Iris.

We don't know much of her extended family if there is any kids.

Having George and Jasper Dyer as page boys seems likely. Perhaps 2 or 3 bridesmaids from Meghan's side. It doesn't seem Jessica's sons would be used and Ivy. Ivy and one of Benita's daughters, as well as Charlotte and a 4th girl seem likely. Be nice if even 3 from each side, but would settle for 2. Benita's daughters are a bit older, would need a bridesmaid a bit older, to match with her so doesn't stand out. 8 year old Savannah might be a good option.

Unless they choose to do like York wedding and go 4/4. But I don't think we will see that many.

US Weekly did a compilation of what they have regarding details of the wedding. A bit about Obamas and Trudeau at the bottom.

Channel 9, one of the five main free to air channels here in Australia have announced their schedule for the week of Harry and Meghan's wedding, with programmes every day. They are the first, the others won't be far behind.

What do you think of this dress for flower girls?

I am very curious. Do we think she will have one adult female attendant with 4-6 child attendants? Or do we think it will be all adults and just a pair of flower girls or pageboys (like the Queen or Autumn, for example)?

I can definitely see the horrid Media turning it into an American vs. British, Meghan-breaks-tradition-yet-again thing if she does have several adult female attendants a la bridesmaids.

Well, Meghan wouldn’t be without family on her big day as her mother’s side are her blood family just as much and I’m certain a quite a few have been invited. What a day for Doria, her only child getting married and she will be there with her just as before. Obviously her close friends will be there, too. Thomas Markle Sr will probably be there as well. Well come to think of it I’d be surprised if he wasn’t given the honour of walking her down the aisle as he made it quite clear to Mirror reporter Christopher Bucktin he’d love to.

‘Asked if he will be at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle to give away Meghan, 36, Thomas Markle Sr beamed: “Yes. I’d love to.”..’

(Shows he is more than willing to, and not “unwilling”)

Just in case that other thread wasn’t the appropriate place to post this.

It's very sweet but doesn't seem to be Meghan's style. I'm very curious, too, regarding the dresses for the attendants.

Yikes Sorry but it looks like a blue dress with a craft smock over. Something out of a kid's dress up box.

I don't see something like this in a grand cathedral/abbey wedding.

But I am interested as well in what they will wear.

On the flip I hope Meghan doesn't embrace the 'English style' so much we get little costumes like Pippa or military dress like Kate's page boys. Cute little suits and dresses.

There is a new person the designers are lining up to design for, for the wedding

A Canadian teen Faith was one of the kids who was awarded the 1st annual Diana award last year. She has started a charity where she provides individualized blankets to cancer patients. Started in Canada but she sends them to several countries. When she was in the UK to receive her award, she spoke to people there, who are interested in opening a London location.

She is one of the seven Diana award recipients chosen to be at the wedding.

Great experience for her to get to attend. And likely exciting for a young woman to have designers offering to dress her

Okay, not feeling the love for the blue dress. I think it would overwhelm smaller flower girls.

But oh dear, I am afraid we are all risking our Mental Health by our Royal Wedding Obsession. Apparently, we should monitor how all-encompassing our interest becomes - because it could turn into an actual mental illness! A Psychiatrist at New York University (couldn't catch the name) thinks if we spend too much time well we will be taking time from something or someone else.

Okay, we are all apparently parasocial because we are interacting with people we don't know in this fantasy world . . .oops, this is only one thread, soooo dare I say we are all certifiable Royal Fanatics.

I was amused by them bringing out the big name Psychiatrist at the University Medical School to tell us we are all whack jobs, but really, it's a bit redundant when we all know we are crazy on this forum.

So, in the interests of mental health, speak to someone when you have your morning coffee . . . my dog is a really good listener and I'm sure most pet owners find the same. Unfortunately, few of us inhabit homes with a spouse, child or roommate who similarly share our royal interests but most seem to indulge our general nuttiness as long as we are deemed harmless (or the lawn doesn't need mowing).

I wonder why nobody thinks golf isn't harmful to our mental health? Have you ever heard them replaying all eighteen holes, shot by shot, over lunch?

Thank you very much you joyless gits that made and posted that clip on Youtube!

We know that ABC and CBS will be covering the wedding. I’m guessing CNN will be providing Live Coverage too. If they can tear themselves from Trump for a couple of hours. We should be seeing some promotions.

I read the other day NBC and PBS are covering it too. Also PBS will have a series of programs about the Royals on the week of the weeking.

CBS, E! Online, NBC, PBS, BBC America, and CNN have all released schedules. ABC is also covering as they mentioned but haven't announced their official schedule yet.

Good Lord will ITV and Sky. Channel 4 [being tediously 'rebellious' and a bit 'alternative'] usually does something ostentatiously 'not the Royal wedding'...

Given how the engagement interview was covered by all channels, I expect no less from all of them for the wedding.
