As one of Meghan’s best friends, Priyanka has been questioned about the wedding so much we’re surprised “Royal Wedding Informant” hasn’t been added to her Wikipedia bio yet. Expect to see the Baywatch actress in the pews.
Victoria Beckham and Mel B have hinted strongly they’ll be there to spice up our lives with rumours the Spice Girls will actually be performing (please be true!).
Meghan wore a sweater from Posh’s collection to her engagement shoot and the designer all but confirmed she was going with the world’s most unconvincing “I don’t know” on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Meanwhile, Mel B confirmed the whole gang’s attendance ages ago, but the other Mel downplayed the official confirmation.
The Suits Cast
Meghan has undoubtedly come across the problem faced by many brides before her – which of your co-workers do you invite to the wedding? But it seems Meghan has gone ahead and invited them all.
After struggling with the very British dresscode of “dress uniform, morning coat or lounge suit”, the cast are actually being helped out by their costume department—a handy friend to have.
Jessica And Ben Mulroney
The term ‘best friend’ has been used to describe pretty much any woman that has more than a passing acquaintance with Meghan, but Jessica might actually be the real deal. The pair apparently grew close during Meghan’s tenure in Toronto and Jessica styled the humanitarian for the couple’s official engagement photocall. They’ve also holidayed together which everyone knows makes it real – if you can endure them in Italy, they’re wedding-worthy.
Survivors Of The Grenfell Tragedy
Last year, Grenfell Tower erupted in flames thanks to utterly inadequate cladding and killed at least 80 occupants. It was a devastating atrocity and Meghan and Harry made secret visits to offer their support and condolences in the wake of the inferno and they extended an invitation to any survivors to attend their ceremony.
Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson
The former royal was famously snubbed from Will and Kate’s wedding but she’ll definitely be at her younger nephew’s nuptials. Apparently Harry intervened to ensure she was invited to the ceremony and first reception, but she isn’t expected to be at the second reception.
Harry's Exes: Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy
Although none of Meghan’s exes scored an invite to the wedding, quite a few of Harry’s will be there. Media outlets reported they’d been ‘snubbed’ by missing out on the exclusive second reception, which seems a bit ridiculous. Who expects an invite to their ex-boyfriend’s wedding?!
Get your sequined jackets and tinted sunglasses ready, because Elton John will be performing at the Royal Wedding.
TMZ reports that Sir Elton will take to the stage on Harry and Meghan’s big day, but it’s still unknown whether it will be during the ceremony at St George’s Chapel or at the evening reception at Frogmore House.
The Tiny Dancer singer was originally going to perform in Las Vegas over the weekend, but due to a “scheduling conflict” these performances were rescheduled months, now we know why! Elton took to Instagram to thank fans coming to his final Vegas show and then he’ll be jetting on a plane to London.
Elton John has a close relationship with the British Royal Family and was firm friends with the late Princess Diana. The two worked together in the fight against AIDS during the 1990s and Elton famously sang ‘Candle in the Wind’ at her 1997 funeral.
He and husband David Furnish were also in attendance at the 2011 wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. In fact, songstress Ellie Goulding performed her cover of Elton’s smash hit ‘Your Song’ for their first dance, so Harry and Meghan may get the original version!
The eight-time Grammy winner told The Sun that he “loves him [Harry] very dearly,” and has commented in the past that Diana’s youngest has inherited his mother’s charitable compassion.
“She had that incredible ability, which he [Harry] kind of inherited – and I told him that, and he said thanks very much – to make people feel at ease and make them feel that everything’s going to be all right.”
The question on everyone’s lips is which hit will Elton sing?
According to Sportsbet, punters predict that Whitney Houston’s 80’s pop anthem I Wanna Dance With Somebody will be their first dance at 1.45 but Sir Elton is at number two at 2.88.
Whatever it is, that dancefloor will be incredible! And we’re still holding out for a last minute invite…
