6 Ladies in the Running to Be Meghan Markle’s Bridesmaids
OK, so we know that K Middy is out of the running when it comes to the role of bridesmaid at Meghan Markle’s wedding, which begs the question: Who will walk her down the aisle at Windsor Castle on May 19?
1. Serena Williams
The pair have been close for years—ever since they played a game of celebrity flag football in 2014. Markle described the best friendship on her lifestyle site The Tig: “We hit it off immediately, taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing in, and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff. So began our friendship.” Serena is also the reason Markle initially made so many trips across the pond. (Hello, Wimbledon.)
2. Priyanka Chopra
Rumors are running wild that Priyanka could in fact assume the role of MOH at Meghan and Harry’s wedding in May. The duo apparently met at a dinner celebrating women in TV and have been BFFs ever since. Chopra has repeatedly spoken out in defense of Harry and Meghan’s relationship. She also took Markle to see Hamilton, a ticket you don’t waste on just any old pal.
3. Misha Nonoo
Speaking of rumors, there’s quite a bit of royal scuttlebutt that Misha is the friend who set Meg and Harry up on their first date. The fashion designer was married to one of Harry’s best friends from Eton, which puts her in close proximity to the prince. Hey, it’s plausible! Markle and Nonoo first met at a luncheon in Miami and have been besties ever since. Nonoo even designed the white shirt that Meghan wore to the Invictus Games, her first public appearance with Harry.
4. Millie Mackintosh
The former Made in Chelsea star frequently pops up on Markle’s Instagram feed. (Meg’s caption to this pic: “The best afternoon with @milliemackintoshofficial—so proud of you, darling.”) Yep, definitely a contender.
5. Jessica Mulroney
She’s the fashion stylist to Justin Trudeau and Canada’s first lady, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau. She’s also been BFFers with Meghan since she first moved to Toronto to start filming Suits.
6. Lindsay Roth
Meghan served as maid of honor to college bestie Lindsay (who’s a producer and author) at her wedding last year. Total shoo-in if you ask us.
