That makes us a little sad …

A marriage between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is fast approaching, with Kensington Palace announcing that the couple will marry at Windsor Castle in May 2018.
With the wedding of the royal couple in sight, many have wondered what we can expect from the big day – who will be the creator of the wedding dress of Meghan Markle at the choice of Prince Harry's best man.
Now the focus is on Meghan Markle – with people taking bets on who will be chosen for the Suits Actress wedding party.
It was revealed last week that Kate Middleton would have no role in the upcoming marriage – quite understandable given that she will have given birth to her third child just a month ago. The Duchess of Cambridge will of course attend the ceremony but according to sources, she will be in the pews.
While she would have been a natural fit for the maid of honor, since she became close to the bride, it seems that Meghan will not have any of her friends to walk in the driveway with her.
There were rumors that celebrities Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra and Sarah Lafferty might wear bridesmaids dresses for the occasion, but according to Marlene Koenig, a British and European expert of royalty, party members are rarely in royal weddings.
"Most royal brides do not have adult bridesmaids," says Marlene Koenig in an interview with Town & Country. "It would be unusual for a royal bride to have a wife in her late thirties as a maid or matron of honor. The Duchess of Cambridge having her sister, Pippa, was unusual. I would be less surprised, though, if any of [Meghan’s] friends read a lesson during the service. "
With only six months before the wedding, we will not have to wait too long to see.
Wedding bells can not come soon enough.
