From a Made in Chelsea star to an American tennis player; here are all the women who might be bridesmaids at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

After months of rumours, speculation and reports Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are finally engaged!

The happy couple confirmed the exciting news via Kensington Palace on Twitter, they wrote: "The Prince of Wales has announced the engagement of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle".

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were the first to congratulate the happy couple and released a statement announcing that the happy couple got engaged earlier this month.

They also confirmed that the big day will take place in spring 2018 and the Prince and 36-year-old actress will live together in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

How sweet.

This Morning reported that the happy couple will be getting married in a church, even though Meghan has previously been married.

Now the happy couple are engaged there's going to be lots of speculation on the guest list, the church, dress and of course, the bridesmaids!

We've all heard horror stories about brides and their bridesmaids (here are 20 bridesmaids who have shared their wedding horror stories) but because Meghan is set to become a Princess we think her day is going to run fairly smoothly.

She's about to become a royal after all.

So we've rounded up all the people we think could possibly be one of her bridesmaids...

Millie Mackintosh

Yup.We bet you didn't know Meghan Markle and Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh are friends?!If you've had a good old stalk on Meghan's Instagram account you'll see this adorable photo of the pair bike riding together.You know, as you do.Will we get to see the former reality star at the royal wedding?

Serena Williams2 of 11

Serena Williams

Someone with an outside shot at being Meghan's bridesmaid is tennis ace Serena Williams. Meghan and the Wimbledon-champion have been friends since 2014 when they met at a charity football game. Despite their reported closeness, Meghan didn't attend Serena's own nuptials earlier this year, so it might be that she doesn't have a role at the royal wedding.

Kate Middleton

As Meghan is marrying into the royal family could Kate Middleton be one of her bridesmaids?We don't know much about how close the women are but they're soon to be family so we reckon they're fairly friendly. PLUS it's going to be a royal wedding so we're pretty sure Kate (who we're guessing will be heavily pregnant) will have a role in the big day.

Princess Charlotte4 of 11

Princess Charlotte

As the niece of Prince Harry, it would be a pretty adorable touch if Princess Charlotte was included in the bridal party. After all, she was part of her aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding earlier this year to James Middleton, so it's not like she hasn't had any practice.

Sarah Rafferty

If you've ever watched even a clip of Suits then you'll of course know who Donna is.Sarah, who plays the infamous character, and Meghan are close friends in real life so will we see Sarah hold the princess-to-be's dress as she walks down the aisle?

Abigail Spencer6 of 11

Abigail Spencer

If you're a fan/watched Suits then you'll remember Harvey's ex-girlfriend Scottie (who is played by Abigail). She may have left Suits a few seasons ago but it turns out Meghan and Abigail are pals outside of the TV series. Could we see a Suits reunion on the big day?

Janina Gavankar7 of 11

Janina Gavankar

Fellow actress Janina Gavankar has known Meghan for 15 years, with the Suits star recently gushing about their friendship in an Instagram post that read: 'Couldn't be prouder of how far we've come, and couldn't be more grateful for being able to share every step of it with you.' As a long-term pal and as someone in the same industry as her, she's got a good chance of being in the bridal party.

Jessica Mulroney8 of 11

Jessica Mulroney

As well as being her unofficial stylist, Jessica Mulroney is also one of Meghan's closest friends, after the two met when the actress relocated to Toronto to begin filming Suits. She is heavily present on Meghan's Instagram account, as is her daughter, Ivy, so we think it's highly likely that she'll have a role.

Lindsay Roth9 of 11

Lindsay Roth

The front-runner for maid of honour is almost certainly Lindsay Roth, who chose Meghan for the same role at her own wedding last August. The Suits actress and producer and author have been friends for 15 years, with Lindsay recently telling People magazine that Meghan is 'the same girl I met years ago'. The two met at a Toni Morrison literature class during their first year of college at Northwestern University.

Priyanka Chopra10 of 11

Priyanka Chopra

Another actress that Meghan is good friends with is Priyanka Chopra, who she met at a dinner celebrating women in Hollywood a few years ago. After Vanity Fair ran their cover story with Meghan pegged to her relationship with Prince Harry, Priyanka defended her friend, saying she was more than just 'Harry's girlfriend'.

Olivia Palermo11 of 11

Olivia Palermo

Actress and model Olivia Palermo and Meghan Markle are pals too!You may recognise Olivia from The Hills spinoff show The City. As they're both fabulous, famous and friends, we wonder if we'll see Olivia at the big day in spring.

So many options we can't wait to here way more details about the big day!
