Unsurprisingly, Prince William has chosen his younger brother, Prince Harry, to be his best man, while his bride, Kate Middleton, has opted to have her younger sister, Pippa Middleton, stand by her side as maid of honor.

The rest of the Prince's groomsmen, or "page boys" as they are called in England, will include: Master William Lowther-Pinkerton, son of Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who has been Prince William's private secretary since 2005, and Tom Pettifer, who is the Prince's godson and will be his second page boy. The eight-year-old's mother is Tiggy Pettifer, who was the Prince of Wales' personal assistant in the 1990s.

Kate's bridesmaids will include Lady Louise Windsor, the daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, as well as the Prince's cousin, and the Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, who is the daughter of Viscount and Viscountess Linley and the second cousin of the Prince. Grace Van Cutsems will also be a bridesmaid. The Prince is her godfather, and Grace's Uncle Edward was one of Prince Charles' page boys when he married Diana in 1981. Last but not least, three-year-old Eliza Lopes will be a bridesmaid as well. Eliza is the daughter of Laura Lopes, the Prince's stepsister and the daughter of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

As the best man, Prince Harry will be responsible for planning his brother's stag party, also known as his bachelor party. We can only imagine what young Harry will come up with it.

    Why is this royalty garbage regarded as important. Royalty has been out of date for hundreds of years, and this William/Middleton marriage is no more important than anyone else's marriage. When will the British grow up and cast off these leeches.

    I don't know what it is, but anything to do with, or about Camilla just rubs me wrong!

    Stanley you are obvoiusly a total loser and jealous of the what other people have. The royal family are certainly not leeches, why don't you go to Libya or the likes and find out how countries are run there before you slag of the British Royalty and just take a look next time you are in London the amount of tourists they bring in from all over the world daily. You should be proud of you Royal family....then perhaps with the comment you have made makes me wonder if you are actually British.

    Good luck to William and Kate.....she will be a great ambassador for the UK....and it is great to see smiling faces again on the television rather than doom and gloom.
