Prince Harry has reportedly asked Ed Sheeran to perform at his wedding. The prince and Meghan Markle will be tying the knot on May 19.
Speculations regarding Prince Harry and Markle's wedding guests have been ripe ever since they announced their engagement in November. Sheeran was already rumored to perform at the couple's wedding since Prince Harry and his fiancée are huge fans of the singer. Sheeran also happens to be friends with Princess Beatrice, Prince Harry's cousin.
As of late, the "Shape of You" singer has not yet confirmed whether or not he will really perform at the royal couple's wedding. In December, reporters at the Buckingham Palace asked Sheeran if he is open to singing at Prince Harry and Markle's wedding, and he indirectly said yes.
During another interview, Sheeran said that as long as he is free, he would perform for the couple. However, he also clarified that he does not have a close relationship with the royal family.
"I get asked this all the time like I know the royal family. I've met Harry once! And that was in 2011 at his grans' Jubilee, and it was like, 'Hey.' 'Hey'... I barely know him!" said Sheeran.
Will Elton John Attend Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's Wedding?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not yet released their official wedding invitations, so it is still unclear who they will really invite to their wedding. Elton John also ignited rumors that he will be performing at Prince Harry and Markle's wedding.
The 70-year-old singer is good friends with Prince Harry's mom Princess Diana. He also just canceled his performances on the weekend of Prince Harry and Markle's wedding.
John revealed that there is a conflict with his schedule on May 18 and 19. All guests who purchased tickets on the said dates will be given a full refund. John was also present at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011.
