The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge children were picked to be a part of it but Zara and Mike Tindall’s daughter Mia wasn’t. Why?

It’s a long-standing tradition that royal children play key roles at family weddings but the Sussex couple decided to break it. Meghan and Harry chose friends’ kids and godchildren instead, with the exception of Kate and William’s offspring.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe believes that the couple wanted to make sure Meghan was ‘represented’ because it was her wedding, too. So the choice of the bridal party members was hers to make.

He explained:

Bridesmaids are often the choice of the bride rather than the groom and it may be that Meghan doesn’t know Mia and Savannah very well - if at all.

Zara later admitted she felt very ‘uncomfortable’ during the wedding. But it wasn’t because she didn’t like the fact that her daughter was left out from the bridal party.

Tindall was pregnant with her second baby who ‘kicked the hell out’ of her ‘for an hour.’ So there shouldn’t be any bad blood between the Tindalls and the Sussexes – at least we hope so.
