Prince William

and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton on Monday revealed the parties who will bear witness at the royal wedding in April.

While the revelation might be tres predictable, it’s still exciting to learn that William’s brother Prince Harry will serve as his best man, and Kate’s sister Pippa gets the lofty title of maid of honor.

While more conventional weddings (read: not a ceremony to be watched by millions) tend to round out bridal parties with college pals and the odd coworker, much younger cousins from both the bride’s and groom’s family will round out the processional, according to Us Weekly.
