The bridesmaids are Lady Louise Windsor, 7, William’s first cousin on his father’s side; the Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, 8, William’s second cousin; Eliza Lopes, 3, granddaughter of Prince Charles’ wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall; and Grace van Cutsem, 3, godchild of Prince William.

The page boys are William Lowther-Pinkerton, 10, the son of Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who has been William and Harry’s private secretary since 2005; and Tom Pettifer, 8, another of William’s godchildren and the son of his former nanny, Tiggy Legge-Bourke.

Prince Harry is the best man, and Kate’s sister, Pippa, is the maid of honor. She was with the bride-to-be when she gave a wave to the crowd Thursday, as she arrived for her final night as simply Kate Middleton at the Goring Hotel.

Wartski made Kate Middleton’s wedding band (people.com). Prince William will not be wearing a wedding band, something that has caused a bit of a stir. Kate’s ring is made from a piece of Welsh gold given to Prince William by the Queen.

Prince William will be wearing the uniform of Colonel of the Irish Guards. “The mounted officer’s uniform features a scarlet jacket, a gold and crimson sash, gold sword slings (without an actual sword inside) and a forage cap. He will also wear the Garter Sash with the Wings of the Royal Air Force, the Garter Star and the Golden Jubilee Medal. William, 28, is commissioned in all three armed services, but the Army’s honorary Irish Guards position, which he earned in February, is his highest military title.”

“Prince Harry, meanwhile, will wear the uniform of Captain of the Household Cavalry (Blues and Royals). He will wear aiguillettes, a cross-belt and gold waist belt with sword slings, but no sword, and a forage cap. He will also wear the Wings of the Army Air Corps and Golden Jubilee and Afghanistan campaign medals.”

“William and Harry’s father, Prince Charles, will wear the Royal Navy Number One Dress (Ceremonial). Charles has held the rank of Admiral of the Royal Navy since 2006.”
