Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it would seem to us, more than essentially anyone else on the planet, could snag just about any performer their hearts so desire for their wedding day — what with their Hollywood connections and, you know, blue blood.

And should they ask, Ed Sheeran is down for the gig!

The ‘Give Me Love’ singer revealed his interest at Buckingham Palace on Thursday, December 7, where he received an MBE from Prince Charles on behalf of Queen Elizabeth. The prestigious title honours his service to music and charity.

When quizzed by reporters if he’d like to sing for the 33-year-old prince and the former Suits actress at their ceremony at Windsor Chapel in May 2018, he said: “Yeah, why not!”

So… Harry and Meghan, what do you think?

Harry and Meghan are set to marry at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018.

The exciting details were announced during a special briefing at Buckingham Palace.

“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year,” the couple’s spokesman said. “They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”

The venue is a relatively low-key choice (by royal standards, of course!), which stands in stark contrast to the pomp and pageantry of royal weddings past — particularly that of William and Kate, who married in the grandeur of Westminster Abbey.

Nonetheless, it’s still a popular choice.

Harry’s father, the Prince of Wales, wed the Duchess of Cornwall at St. George’s in a “service of blessing” in April 2005. It was also chosen for the nuptials of Harry’s cousin, Peter Phillips, and Autumn Kelly in 2008, and the Earl and Countess of Wessex in 1999.

Charles and Camilla wed at St. George’s in a “service of blessing” in April 2005.

The spokesman added that the duo “want the day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations” and will work through ideas for how this might be achieved.

With this in mind, it’s likely that their nuptials will be televised.

We can hardly wait!

Let the royal wedding countdown begin!
