Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Mulroney children to be featured in royal wedding
Harry and Meghan Markle, who will wed Saturday, also chose their godchildren for prominent roles
Britain's Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle have chosen George and Charlotte, the children of the royal's elder brother Prince William, to be among the bridesmaids and page boys for their wedding, Harry's office said on Wednesday.
Also selected for the much-anticipated event at Windsor Castle on Saturday are the couple's goddaughters and godson, and the children of one of her best friends.
Harry's office said last week that all the bridesmaids would be children and that Markle had decided not to have a maid of honour because she could not choose between her friends.

Princess Charlotte, 3, will be joined as a bridesmaid by:
- Florence van Cutsem, 3, and Zalie Warren, 2, Harry's goddaughters.
- Remi and Rylan Litt, 6 and 7, Meghan's goddaughters.
- Ivy Mulroney, the four-year-old daughter of her friend Jessica Mulroney.
Mulroney's sons Brian and John Mulroney, both 7, will also join Prince George as a page boy along with Harry's godson Jasper Dyer, 6.
While George, 4, and Charlotte will have roles in the ceremony at St George's Chapel at Windsor, their younger brother Prince Louis, who was born last month, will not be there, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
George and Charlotte also acted as page boy and flower girl respectively at last year's wedding of Pippa Middleton, sister of their mother Kate, to financier James Matthews.
Bridesmaid Florence van Cutsem also provides a link to William and Kate's own wedding. Van Cutsem's cousin Grace, William's goddaughter, was a bridesmaid at their ceremony in 2011.
Jessica Mulroney is shown with her children in a recent Instagram post:
