After the bride, the second most anticipated arrival at a royal wedding isn’t the groom – sorry, Prince harry! – but the adorable procession which, according to tradition, is made up entirely of children. (Pippa Middleton role in Prince william and Kate Middleton’s The 2011 wedding was a rare exception .__) And yet Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, attracted their usual attention, the twin page boys tasked with carrying that of Meghan Markle The Givenchy veil turned out to be the stars of the royal wedding.
The 7-year-old brothers are Brian Mulroney and John Mulroney, who arrived with Meghan at St. George’s Chapel in a black Rolls-Royce. The twins are the sons of Meghan’s best friend and stylist Jessica mulroney and TV presenter Ben Mulroney, and the grandsons of the former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. Brian and John weren’t the only Mulroney in the wedding party – they were joined by a 4-year-old sister Ivy Mulroney. Their mother, Jessica, was pictured on the steps of St. George’s Chapel – helping to argue over the bridal entourage of ages 7 and under – in a vibrant royal blue gown and fascinator, alongside Sister-in-law Meghan, Kate.
Brian, John, George and the boy from the fourth page, 6 years old Jasper Dyer, all wore miniature versions of the Blues and Royals frock coat, like Harry and William, by the Savile Row tailors Dege & Skinner. People reported that “each page boy’s initials have been embroidered in gold on their epaulettes, as a special keepsake of the happy day.”
Much like Pippa Middleton did in 2011 when she carried her sister Kate’s train, one of the Mulroney twins also created a viral moment when a camera caught her with a huge open-mouthed smile behind Meghan.
After wearing Meghan’s veil down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel, the boys joined their mother and sister on a front bench.
Brian and John are regularly featured in matching clothes on Jessica’s Instagram feed: they read, steal, and dress in formal wear.
