Prince Harry's six-year-old godson Jasper Dyer will be a pageboy. Jasper is the son of Harry's mentor Mark Dyer and his American wife Amanda. You might recall Mark accompanied Meghan to her first polo outing last year. He has been a constant source of support for Harry especially after he lost his mother and during the difficult years that followed.
Jessica Mulroney is not only Meghan's stylist but one of her dearest friends. When she landed the part in Suits and moved to Toronto Jessica was there every step of the way. She is married to Ben Mulroney, a well-known television host and son of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. Harry and Meghan enjoyed many a date night at the couple's Canadian home during the early stages of their relationship. Jessica has been instrumental in assisting Meghan with planning the wedding.
It came as no surprise to learn their seven-year-old twin boys Brian and John will be page boys and their daughter, four-year-old Ivy, a bridesmaid.
Jessica, Ben and the children were photographed arriving at Heathrow airport last night.
People: "Benita runs her own agency as a brand curator, helping companies including Netflix, Samsung, and Jo Malone develop their brand identities. Meghan spends her time with Benita and her daughters crafting, cuddling up, ordering in pizza, and even having a little tree-trimming party. Benita and Meghan also vacationed together in Ibiza last year."
Two of Prince Harry's goddaughters complete the bridal party; Miss Zalie Warren, aged just 2, the daughter of Zoe and Jake Warren and three-year-old Florence van Cutsem, the daughter of Major Nicholas van Cutsem and his wife Alice. Florence's cousin Grace made quite the impression at William and Kate's wedding. Will Florence follow in her footsteps?
Doria Arrives in London... Meghan's mother was photographed leaving her LA home last night and has now arrived in London. Hello! reports "Doria Ragland is thought to have arrived in the UK on Wednesday after she was spotting making her way to Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday for her daughter Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry. The mother-of-the-bride was spotted carrying a Burberry garment bag, which is thought to contain her wedding outfit, as she was collected from her home in a black SUV. According to TMZ, the 61-year-old spent time in the terminal's private suite before taking a first-class flight to the UK."

Thomas Markle Update... Thomas Markle will not be attending the wedding. Last night he told TMZ he will undergo heart surgery today and will be unable to fly to London. I expect Kensington Palace will soon address the situation and likely announce Meghan's mother Doria will walk her down the aisle. It's turned out to be a very saddening series of events for Meghan and an appallingly handled situation. It is a dreadful pity one coordinated statement from KP wasn't organised rather than the media circus which unfolded days from the wedding. Omid Scobie shares his thoughts below.
