Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding is only a few short months away, but we’re still obsessing over the UK’s last royal wedding — the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, which took place on April 29, 2011. In the years since Kate and William’s “I Dos,” we’ve been fixated on every last detail of their big day, including, for starters, the wedding party. Who exactly were William’s Best Man and page boys, you ask? And who were Kate Middleton’s Maid of Honor and bridesmaids? We’ve got the answers!
About 1,900 guests attended Kate and William’s historic wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey, an estimated one million people lined the streets of London to try to catch a glimpse of the happy couple, and more than 100 million people watched coverage of the event on TV. But only eight people were lucky enough to serve in the future King and Queen’s wedding party! The wedding party included a certain brother and a certain sister — both of whom you definitely know — as well as a first cousin, a second cousin, a step-niece, and children of William and Kate’s friends and employees. (You may remember Grace van Cutsem, the scene-stealing three-year-old bridesmaid who grumpily covered her ears as the crowd cheered on the bride and groom’s first public kiss!)
