Best Friend Goals: Meet Meghan Markle's Closest Gal Pals Who Supported Her Every Step Of The Way At The Royal Wedding
On her big day, Meghan Markle was feeling the love from two of her oldest and closest friends, Jessica Mulroney and Benita Litt.
Weeks before the wedding, we learned that Jessica Mulroney and Meghan Markle have been thick as thieves for years. She's a Canadian stylist who's dressed top tier personalities in politics and in Hollywood including Meghan herself, and it's been rumored that Meghan specifically called on the mom of three to help her pick out her wedding gown and plan the big day with her.
Speaking of Jessica's tiny tots, the two little boys—twins—who carried Meghan's veil down as she arrived at the wedding venue, walked up the steps of St. George's Chapel, and floated down the aisle were Jessica's adorable sons! Brian and George were accompanied by their little sister Ivy, and other pocket-sized page boys and bridesmaids who made up the bridal entourage.
On the other hand, Benita Litt, businesswoman and philanthropist, was also present at the ceremony to support Meghan, but has decidedly stayed out of the limelight throughout the months leading up to the royal wedding.
Many of Meghan's followers are just learning about her as of late, and they've since discovered that Benita is a lawyer by profession, mom to two kids, a wife to successful investor Darren Litt, and is also a fashion and travel enthusiast. She's mostly known for being the co-CEO of Legend of Lido, a brand of chic carryalls for women. Benita's daughters, Rylan and Remi, were also bridesmaids and are goddaughters of Meghan.
Aside from Jessica and Benita, Meghan's extended circle of friends was also in attendance to share the happy occasion with her. Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, David and Victoria Beckham, her Suits cast mates including Sarah Rafferty, as well as George and Amal Clooney were some of Meghan's famous friends spotted in the grand affair.
Every once in a while there is a moment when time stands still.. that happened today.. You my friend.. were the epitome of grace, love and beauty. Every choice made at this wedding by you both will go down in history, not just because it was your wedding but because this incredible wedding stood for change and hope.

I wish you both love happiness and togetherness always.. ??
While Meghan could have chosen a maid of honor, the newly named Duchess of Sussex opted to have only young bridesmaids, as she couldn't choose just one of her closest friends to fill the role. Instead, it looks like she made these stylish ladies her "honorary bridesmaids," equally showing each of them her gratefulness for helping make this day as special as it was.
