Britain’s Prince Harry weds US former actress Meghan Markle on Saturday in a pomp-filled ceremony at Windsor Castle. Here’s a quick look at some of the members of the bridal party.

Doria Ragland, mother of the bride

Meghan calls her mother, a social worker and yoga instructor, a “free spirit”.

She has a master’s degree in social work and ran the 2017 Los Angeles marathon. She arrived a few days before the wedding, meeting Harry’s father Prince Charles and grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

Her ex-husband Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, is not attending after undergoing an emergency heart operation in the days leading up to the wedding.

Meghan’s friends

Several of Meghan’s former co-stars from the US television series “Suits” have been photographed in Britain ahead of the wedding, including Patrick J. Adams, who played her on-screen husband.

Stylist Jessica Mulroney was also photographed in London. She runs a bridal store in Toronto, where Markle filmed “Suits”, and is said to have helped choose the wedding gown. Her husband Ben Mulroney is son of former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney.
