OBV they've had to fire the location manager after he failed to secure St Paul's Cathedral and the Transatlantic movie will now be shot in 'Windserr Cassel'..

You men the Crown Princess of Greece, don't you? The Greek RF is very close to the British RF.

The eldest was 10, the youngest was 3.

It seems likely that George and Charlotte will be attendants, and just based on age the Phillips girls or Mia Tindall might be chosen (1 of the three of them, not all). William and Harry don't seem particularly close to Charles Spencer, so I wouldn't expect one of his younger children to be an attendant, but it does seem like both William and Harry are close with their maternal aunts, so it's possible that they could go with one of either Sarah or Jane's grandchildren (Sarah's eldest grandchild was born in 2014, Jane's eldest in 2015).

Camilla's grandchildren range in age from 10 to 7. So, on the older side but within the same range as William and Kate's attendants. It would be nice to see one of Camilla's grandchildren be an attendant.

Harry has 2 godchildren, Fred Pettifer (16) and Jasper Galloway Dyer (5). Fred's too old, but Jasper's in that age range.

For Megan's friends... it seems like Meghan is very close with Benita Litt's children, although I don't know how old they are. Meghan's co-stars Sarah Rafferty and Gabriel Macht both have younger children. And, of course, Brian and Jessica Mulroney's children are all within that 10 - 3 age range.
I wonder if there are any children on her mother's side of the family that Meghan is close to? Does she have any cousins, etc with kids she's close to?

Those could be options as well.

I hadn’t realised Kate’s bridal party ranged from 3-10, I didn’t realise one of the boys was as old as 10. I had taken James, Viscount Severn out of the possible options for page boy as he will be 10 this December so I had him down as “too old”. He is a possibility if they need another page boy as I’m not sure how many younger godsons Harry has.

I think Meghan’s two little god daughters are a given, as are George and Charlotte and Harry’s god son Jasper.

They do have a lot of candidates to pick from. Ivy Mulroney is also very close to Meghan. I remember there were a lot of pictures of Ivy with Auntie Meghan on both Meghan and Jessica's IG before and around the time the relationship news broke and the social media stopped. I think Jessica even had to delete a few photos with her daughter and Meghan.

I was writing James off at first because of age too, until I looked at the age of William and Catherine’s attendants.

That said, given that there are more younger Windsor cousins now (and a few Spencer cousins), I think James is unlikely - Savannah, Isla, and Mia are more likely, in my opinion.

There are so many little Windsor girls, the boys are becoming outnumbered!

James is unlikely if harry and Meghan have enough young boys to add.

She goes by Ivy. Jessica and Ben Mulroney has always referred to her as Ivy on social media as has Meghan. I'm just going to write Ivy.

You know, weddings, even those in the family of QEII, don't always have a ton of quite small children for attendants. That's just one possible model we might see.

The Queen had girls quite close to her in age, including her sister and Margaret Rhodes. Sarah Chatto had teenagers. Autumn Philips had (gasp) more adults than children. Princess Margaret's were all kids, but most were in the 7-12 age range. Princess Anne only had little kids, but she also only had two of them. I think Zara just had one pageboy.

Since the wedding location was announced, there has been a "bookings bonanza" for Windsor hotels, says The Guardian. And it's mostly international and national broadcasters making the inquiries. Of course this is no surprise.

This is all great news for Windsor and the surrounding towns. I’m sure local businesses will welcome an influx of royal watchers!

Most of the guessing for the actual day has been Friday the 18th or Saturday the 19th.

Right after the Royal Horse Show.

People (Americans) are already booking rooms for May in London.

I just hope that the onslaught of bookings by the media doesn't drown out the chances for the actual royal watchers to be able to book a room and participate.

Fortunately, Windsor is surrounded by smaller villages which regularly depend on tourism for much of their income so even if the media do take over Windsor hotels, there’ll be plenty on offer in the surrounding villages such as Datchet or Wraysbury.

A train journey from London to Windsor would probably cost the same as two nights in a b&b fifteen minutes out of Windsor. Far better to stay local if anyone is thinking of visiting for the nuptials.

I’ve seen plenty of US coverage and have had many American friends asking questions about the wedding. I think it’s a generalisation to suggest that every single American is indifferent. I don’t suggest every American is agog either but to be frank, this isn’t an American event. It’s an occasion for the British people. We would love to welcome anyone from any country who wants to come and wish the couple well but really it’s about our Prince, his future wife and our Royal Family.
