Who Will Be At The Royal Wedding Of Harry & Meghan?
Who Will Be At The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?
The guest list for the 2018 Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is coming up fast. The two are scheduled to wed this Saturday, May 19, and we couldn't be more excited. But, fans of the royals and the Suits actress are wondering who will be at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Who was invited? The attendees for the Royal Wedding are bound to be an exclusive bunch. St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle can only hold 800 people. This is relatively small compared to the 2,000 capacity of Westminster Abbey, the church where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married. But, that's enough chit-chat for now. We know why you came. Here is everyone who will attending the Royal Wedding.
Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip and Prince Charles
Starting off Prince Harry's guest list is the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip. The Queen's son and Harry's father, Prince Charles, will also be in attendance with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Fun fact: Prince Charles and Camilla held their wedding blessing ceremony in St. George's Chapel, where Prince Harry and Meghan will be married.
Prince William and Kate Middleton
Prince Harry's older brother (and most recent royal wedding hoster), Prince William will be attending the ceremony as Prince Harry's best man. He's returning the favor as Harry was his best man at his wedding to Kate. Kate Duchess of Cambridge will also be at the wedding although it is not expected that she will be in the wedding party. The Duke and Duchess's two children, however, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, may be flower boy and girl in the ceremony.
Prince Seeiso of Lesotho
Not a member of the royal family, but a close acquaintance of both princes, is Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. Prince Seeiso and Prince Harry founded the Sentable charity together to help vulnerable children in Lesotho and Botswana.
The Spice Girls
Although not 100% confirmed, it's rumored that all five Spice Girls will be in attendance at the royal wedding and possibly perform at the reception. Mel B practically confirmed the rumours during an interview with the chat show The Real.
Other singers rumoured to be in attendance are Ed Sheeran, Joss Stone, The Foo Fighters, James Blunt (whom Harry served with in the British Army), Ellie Goulding (who sang at Prince William and Kate's wedding) and Sir Elton John.
Basically American royalty and longtime friend of Meghan's, Serena Williams will be flying across the pond to attend the royal wedding. Guess there are no hard feelings over the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan were unable to participate in Serena's wedding.
The Cast of Suits
Meghan has extended invitations to cast and critical executives of Suits, the TV show she has starred on for seven seasons. The staff at Windsor Castle was instructed to watch Suits so they could familiarize themselves with Harry and Meghan's wedding guests. If only watching Netflix was part of our daily duties on the job.
Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy
Both previous girlfriends of Prince Harry, it's been reported that Chelsy Davy whom Harry dated from 2004 to 2011, and Cressida Bonas who he dated from 2014 to 2016, will both be in attendance at the ceremony. Apparently everyone is on good terms, so lets hope we dont hear "I object" at any point in the ceremony.
The survivors of the Grenfell Fire
Last June, a horrific fire in a public housing building killed 80 people in west London. To show their support for those whose survived the tragic event, Harry and Meghan have invited a few survivors to be in the chapel with them for the wedding ceremony.
That concludes all the big names that will be there for Prince Harry and Meghan's big day! Be sure to watch all the coverage of the royal wedding so you can see all the celebrities coming to the chapel! Who else will you be able to spot on the day of the royal wedding?
