When Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married on May 19 at St George's Chapel in Windsor, it also stated that their wedding will reflect their personalities. Perhaps that's why the royal couple is rumored to have chosen a banana wedding cake instead of the traditional fruit cake that's served to guests at royal weddings. And now, the couple is rumored to have made another decision on who will sing at their wedding reception.
Harry and Meghan have reportedly chosen Grammy-winning artist Ed Sheeran as their wedding singer, and the world is rejoicing. After all, Ed's songs brim with love and joy, and that's how the couple's relationship has been.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Sheeran has been asked to perform but his representative is yet to confirm. If he does sing, then the 26-year-old singer will have the Perfect song for the couple. We reckon the British singer will also sing Shape of You, a song that will melt Meghan's heart.
If he does perform, Ed's musical stylings will be presented at Prince Charles's informal evening reception for the soon-to-be-married couple. "This is where everyone's really going to get down, this is for close friends and family," ET's correspondent Victoria Arbiter said.
Ed said he would perform at the royal wedding if he was asked. He told Entertainment Tonight at KIIS-FM’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in December 2017, "I get asked this all the time like I know the royal family. I've met Harry once!" he confessed. "[And] that was in 2011 at his grans' Jubilee, and it was like, 'Hey.' 'Hey'... I barely know him!"
Nevertheless, the 26-year-old singer met Harry's dad when he was awarded an MBE last year and said it was a great honor because his grandfather was a royalist. Ed told reporters, "Do you know what I love, my grandfather was a massive royalist, he had all the commemorative plates and stuff, and he died on this day [December 7, 2017] four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he’d be pretty proud," according to People.
In any case, Ed already has some experience singing at weddings. The Grammy-winning artist crashed Kya and Matt De Bono's wedding in Sydney in 2015 and performed Thinking Out Loud for their first dance. We wonder which of his songs will be played for Harry and Meghan's first dance.
