And with Prince Harry being so close to his older brother, his sister-in-law Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is sure to play a part in the highly-anticipated nuptials, right?

The short answer? Probably not a big one.

"For another, she is the future queen consort when William becomes king after his father, and would unlikely be an attending person to another royal bride," says Koenig.

Since the roles of maid of honour and bridesmaid are generally reserved for single ladies, the only title Kate could hold, if she were to participate in the wedding party, is matron of honour. It's essentially the same as a maid of honour, except "matron" refers to a married woman. "But it's unlikely for Catherine to do this," says Koenig. "She was not a matron of honor, even at her sister's wedding."

She would want her sister by her side, as who else would she trust to make things go well? But if your sister is a future Queen, she is going to upstage the bride and draw attention. Kate would want to be in the background as much as possible.”

Other possibilities for Harry and Meghan's wedding party, at least from the groom's side of the family, include Harry's first cousins, Lady Louise Windsor and her brother Viscount Severn, as well as the children of his two first cousins, Mia Tindall (whose mother is Zara Phillips) and Savannah and Isla Phillips (the daughters of Peter Phillips).
