The entire world will be closely watching, what is being dubbed as, the wedding of the year. Suits actress Meghan Markle will be getting married to Prince Harry on May 19. We have known for a long time now that Quantico star Priyanka Chopra will be attending the wedding from the bride’s side as the two became friends long back at a Hollywood party. Speculations were rife if Priyanka will also be one of Meghan’s bridesmaids. Turns out, the answer is no. Days before the D-Day, Kensington Palace has released a list of people who will be taking up the role of bridesmaids and page boys at the wedding. Priyanka’s name is not there on the list.
A tweet from the palace reads, “Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen the Bridesmaids and Page Boys for their Wedding on Saturday 19th May.” The first name on the list is 3-year-old, Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. Then there are Prince Harry’s goddaughters, who will be walking down the aisle. (ALSO READ: Priyanka Chopra reveals why Meghan Markle will be the “People’s Princess” – watch video)

We will still be looking forward to seeing what Priyanka will wear to this grand wedding. Priyanka was recently a guest on Andy Cohen’s talk show, Watch What Happens Live! with Avengers: Infinity war actor, Sebastian Stan. When the show’s host, Andy asked her if she knows who she’s going with, she looked a bit confused. She simply said, “There’s a decision pending on that.” The actress doesn’t even know what she’ll wear on such a big day though she has a fair idea about it. “I have no idea about it (dress). I haven’t even fit it yet. I have an idea but I am more stressed about wearing a small hat.”
As per reports, Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, has dropped out of the wedding, following an embarrassing paparazzi controversy and a minor heart attack. In the previous weeks, various sets of paparazzi pictures of Thomas had surfaced in which he can be seen scrolling through news reports about the wedding, getting fittings for a suit, etc. A report by Mail on Sunday revealed that all of these pictures were staged. The paparazzi, Meghan’s father and Meghan’s estranged half-sister Samantha Markle were all in on this plan. After this, TMZ reported that Thomas has opted out of the wedding.
