The details regarding who will be part of Meghan Markle and Prince Harrys bridal part were released on Wednesday.

The bridal party will consist of 10 little children, including Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, the 3-year-old daughter of Kate Middleton and Prince William and Prince George of Cambridge, the 4-year-old son of the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge.
The news comes following reports revolving around Markles father, Thomas Markle, first admitting he staged photos for the paparazzi to improve his image and backing out of the wedding only to reverse course and say he would be attending. That news was soon followed up by the fact that he would indeed miss his daughters big day as he was scheduled to have major heart surgery, after suffering a heart attack last week.
Kensington Palace has not commented on the gossip sites reports, only said Monday that the soon to be royal couple ask for “understanding and respect” during this time.
“This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace told CNN. “She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.”
The royal wedding will take place Saturday at St. Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle.
