Meghan Markle has decided she won't be having a Maid of Honour when she weds Prince Harry on May 19, according to Kensington Palace officials.

And the reason is relatable AF – she can't decide who to pick.

Press Secretary Jason Knauf announced that Markle will not have a Maid of Honor because she “has a very close-knit circle of friends and she didn’t want to choose one over another. All have been actively involved in helping her prepare for the day and will be there in the days beforehand. She's very happy to have their support."


It was originally believed that Meghan would choose Jessica Mulroney, who helped keep her relationship with Harry a secret. Others believed Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, Sarah Rafferty or Gina Torres might be in the running to stand beside Meghan. 

Meghan is set to follow royal tradition and have a bridal party made of up of children who will serve as page boys, bridesmaids and flower girls.

On April 26, Kensington Palace announced that Prince William will serve as Prince Harry’s Best Man, just like the Harry did for his brother’s wedding in 2011.
