While this may seem like no big deal, royal weddings are very British, adhering to their traditions and culture, since an entire country is zealously overlooking and analyzing everything they do. These weddings typically have a chief bridesmaid.
“While it is very much a British wedding, expect a few American touches too. She’s not picked a chief bridesmaid, she’s chosen a maid of honour.”
While the maid of honor’s name hasn’t been released yet, Elle Magazine has a shortlist of the possible women who’ll take this spot, including Markle’s stylist Jessica Mulroney, and actresses such as Priyanka Chopra and Suits co-star Sarah Rafferty. Most people believe that Prince Harry’s best man will be Prince William.

Reuters estimates that the royal wedding will produce around 680 million dollars for the British, from tourism, traveling and hotels, providing a significant boost to their economy. Sigh.
