The dapper young twins were tasked with holding up the end of the bride’s spectacular train
The Mulroney twins and their little sister – whose mother is Meghan’s best friend Jessica Mulroney, and father is Ben Mulroney, son of the former Canadian prime minister Brian – were among 10 page boys and flower girls supporting Meghan on her big day.
Also given special roles were the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s two eldest children, Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, three and Prince Harry’s godson Jasper Dyer, six, and goddaughters Florence Van Custem, three, and Zalie Warren, two.
Completing the set are Remi and Rylan Litt, aged six and seven respectively, who are the daughters of one of Miss Markle’s oldest (and most discreet) friends, Benita Litt, and are also Meghan’s goddaughters.
The six little girls, including three-year-old Princess Charlotte, were dressed in all white and had flowers adorning their hair as they giggled and walked behind the beaming bride.
The page boys were smart in mini morning suits.

When Kensington Palace revealed details of the young bridal party, it became clear that the bride was determined to include her close circle of friends in her special day – by giving some of her best friends’ children key roles.
It is a far cry from the last royal wedding in 2011 – when Kate married William, she was not accompanied by any children from her own side of the aisle.
Her young bridal party included the offspring of an Earl and Princess Margaret’s granddaughter, while the children of a glossy celebrity stylist and an LA handbag designer were among the adorable crew seen clambering up the steps of St George’s Chapel today.

Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge (aged three)
The middle child and only daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has made a name for herself for her royal confidence despite being just three years old.
It was Charlotte – Harry’s niece – who led the way into the Lindo Wing to meet new baby brother Prince Louis, giving a regal wave as she went.
Her parents have told how the fourth in line to the throne rules the roost, saying she is ‘very sweet’ but also feisty.
Miss Florence van Cutsem (aged three – goddaughter of Prince Harry, daughter of Mrs Alice van Cutsem and Major Nicholas van Cutsem)
Three-year-old Florence is Prince Harry’s goddaughter, and the daughter of his long-standing family friend Major Nicholas van Cutsem and Alice van Cutsem.

Benita runs her own brand agency under her name where she helps others to start businesses.

Prince George, who is four, is third in line to the throne and a future king.
William and Kate’s eldest child is said to be shyer than his younger sister Charlotte, and the duke has told how his son loves helicopters, flying and is obsessed with all things police-related.
Like Charlotte, George is rarely seen in public. The duke and duchess try to ensure their children are protected from media intrusion.
But the pair have appeared at key royal events such as the annual Trooping the Colour parade, and have joined William and Kate on official overseas tours.
Jasper Dyer is a godson of Prince Harry’s
Master Jasper Dyer (aged six – godson of Prince Harry, son of Mrs Amanda Dyer and Mr Mark Dyer MVO)
Six-year-old Jasper Dyer is also a godson of Harry’s and the son of his trusted mentor Mark Dyer and Mr Dyer’s wife Amanda.
Former Welsh Guards office Mr Dyer has been a key father figure to the prince since childhood.
A former equerry to the Prince of Wales, he was entrusted by Charles to keep an eye on Harry.
The pair travelled together in Harry’s gap year and he inspired the prince’s charity work in Lesotho, southern Africa, after arranging Harry’s first ever stay in the country.
Master Brian Mulroney and Master John Mulroney (both aged seven – sons of Mrs Jessica Mulroney and Mr Benedict Mulroney)
The fraternal twin sons of Jessica and Ben Mulroney are seven years old – and older siblings to Ivy Mulroney.
In an interview with thestar.com in 2014, Mrs Mulroney described how the boys were best friends.
‘Ben was at the MMVAs (iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards) and John did something really sweet,’ she said. ‘He hugged Brian from behind and said, ‘Brian, you make me great’. ‘
The article described the children, who had two nannies, as ‘incredibly well-behaved’.
