Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have prominent roles in Saturday's royal wedding. Kensington Palace said Wednesday that 4-year-old George will be a page boy and 3-year-old Charlotte will be a bridesmaid at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, per the AP. The third child of Prince William and his wife Kate, Prince Louis, was born last month and won't be attending. The palace says there will be six bridesmaids, ranging from 2 to 7 years old, and four page boys, ranging from 4 to 7.

Per the BBC, the youngest members of the bridal party will also include several of the couple's godchildren, as well as the three kids of one of Markle's best friends. There's no word on what the children will be wearing for the big day. William will be Harry's best man, while Markle has chosen not to have a maid of honor for the ceremony in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, reportedly so she didn't have to choose from among her good friends.
