With the royal nuptials only three weeks away, we turn our attention to the glamorous folk on the guest list.
Besides the Queen, other members of the royal family and foreign royals, there is also set to be strong contingent of celebrities who may have scored an invitation to the most coveted wedding event of the year.
From Meghan’s Hollywood friends to Prince Harry’s longtime pals, we round up the celebs who may get to witness the couple exchange vows on May 19:
The Quantico actress confirmed that she will be attending the wedding, although she says she hasn’t picked out a dress yet (no, she will not be one of Meghan’s bridesmaids).
The 35-year old star has known Meghan for around three years, and she wrote a beautiful piece about the bride-to-be for Time magazine’s list of 100 Most Influential People of 2018:
“This ever-smiling, strong free spirit found her prince, fell in love and in turn made a cynical world believe in fairy tales again. But more than anything else, Meghan is an important influencer in a world that needs strong public figures to respect and look up to. People the world can be inspired by.”
Meghan’s longtime pal (they met at a charity football game in 2014) and tennis legend Serena Williams is also probably invited, although she says she may not make it to the wedding as it’s in the middle of tournament season.
With that said, she’s offered some helpful words of wisdom from her own wedding experience, saying on Good Morning America, “I just think it’s so important to enjoy the moment. And eat the cake – I didn’t get to eat mine at the wedding. We were just having so much fun.”
George & Amal Clooney
The high-flying couple have apparently scored invites to the royal wedding as well. No word yet on whether they’ll be bringing their baby twins, Alexander and Ella, along.
Human rights lawyer Amal reportedly introduced her own hairstylist, London-based Miguel Perez, to Meghan, and he’ll be styling hair for the big day.
The cast of Suits
Meghan hasn’t forgotten about her TV family either, as she’s known to be close to quite a few of them, from Patrick J Adams who plays her onscreen love interest Mike (their characters just tied the knot on the latest season finale), Sarah Rafferty who plays Donna and Gina Torres who plays Jessica Pearson.
David & Victoria Beckham
British pop culture royalty – The Beckhams – are close friends of the royals, and they even attended Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011.
Victoria also let slip on James Corden’s The Late Late Show that she’s going to the royal wedding, by stammering over her words when the late night show host asked if she was attending.
While he told BBC radio 2 on March 29 that he hadn’t received an invitation, the iconic performer who famously dedicated Candle in The Wind to Princess Diana has rescheduled concerts that conflict with the weekend of the royal wedding.
The 44-year-old British singer and Prince Harry served in the military together, and have known each other for a long time.
While he probably won’t be performing at the royal wedding, he will probably appear as a guest.
In case you didn’t know, the English model and actress was once said to be dating Prince Harry, a rumour she quickly shot down.
The two are good friends, part of the posh circle of elites, and are known to have partied together on many occasions.
