As the big day is approaching for the royal wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton announced the maid of honor, bridesmaids, best man and ring bearers for their upcoming ceremony.

Clarence House, via Twitter, released the information on Valentine's Day.

It's all in the family as Prince William asked his younger brother Harry to be his best man and Kate Middleton asked her younger sister, Philippa, better known by her nickname Pippa, to be her maid of honor.

Pippa is two years younger than her sister. In the summer of 2010 she launched an online party magazine titled The Party Times. She is also dedicated to charity as she serves as an ambassador for Too Many Women, an organization which raises money for breast cancer research.

The ring-bearers and bridesmaids are mainly people unknown to the public. Among them is 7-year-old Lady Louise Windsor, the queen's youngest granddaughter. Lady Louise is the daughter of Prince Edward, William's uncle, and his wife Sophie who are the Earl and Countess of Wessex, respectively.

It is Louise's coming out to the world, said Dickie Arbiter, the queen's former press secretary. She was born with a squint; her parents have been very protective.

The 7-year-old was born with a rare condition that causes her eyes to point outwards.

Lady Louise will be joined by other little royals such as The Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, 8, Master William Lowther-Pinkerton, 10, and Miss Eliza Lopes.

Prince William's godchildren, Miss Grace van Cutsem and Master Tom Pettifer will also be a part of the wedding.

Information on the bridesmaids' dresses and the ring-bearers' uniforms will not be revealed until the wedding day.

The princess-to-be may be receiving an early wedding gift as British newspapers are buzzing with news that former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham will send a selection of her clothes to Middleton.

Middleton had previously expressed her enthusiasm for Beckham's designs.

The wedding is scheduled for April 29.
