It has been claimed that Prince Harry himself has requested that Ed Sheeran performs at the wedding. The request is not too out of the question – Princess Beatrice is said to be great friends with the ‘Perfect’ singer.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on May 19th. On Sunday, further details were released regarding the couple’s nuptials. The couple will be married by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and the ceremony will begin at 12pm.
Immediately after the ceremony, Harry and Meghan will take a ride in a carriage through the streets of Windsor allowing gathered wellwishers to get a glimpse of the newly married duo. A statement from Kensington Palace read, “They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day.”
There will be a reception held at St George’s Hall followed by a private reception hosted by Prince Charles later on in the evening.
Ed Sheeran has previously hinted that he would love to perform at the wedding. When asked in December 2017, the ‘Galway Girl’ singer said he would play the ceremony, “if I am free.”
More details regarding the upcoming wedding are set to be released within the next few weeks.
