With less than three months to go until their royal wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton are busy checking tasks off their to-do list.

William, 28, and Middleton, 29, announced who's joining their bridal party through a statement released by Palace officials on Monday -- and, no surprise, it's a family affair!

Prince Harry will serve as the Best Man for his older brother, while Philippa Middleton (a.k.a. Pippa), Kate's older sister, will be Maid of Honor.

Other young bridesmaids and "page boys" (groomsmen) named are the children of family and friends:
Prince William's first cousin Lady Louise Windsor, the 7-year-old daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex; the Honorable Margarita Armstrong-Jones, 8, daughter of Viscount and Viscountess Linley; Grace van Cutsem, 3, daughter of Prince William's pals Mr. and Mrs. Hugh van Cutsem (Grace is the Prince's goddaughter); Eliza Lopes, 3 (granddaughter of Camilla Parker-Bowles); Billy Lowther Pinkerton, 10 (son of the Prince's private secretary); Tom Pettifer, 8 (the Prince's godson and son of his former nanny, Tiggy Pettifer).

One thing that's still under works, however, is the official guest list.

While First Lady Michelle Obama recently announced she hasn't been invited -- "Marriage is a personal private thing, they should invite who they want to invite, and if I get invited, I'll go," she said on Live With Regis and Kelly -- Ellen DeGeneres is busy angling for a spot to the royal affair.

During her "Ye Old Wedding Watch" this week, the talk show host revealed that she received a letter from the New England Historic Genealogical Society that she and Middleton are 15th cousins.
