According to reports,Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently asked Ed Sheeran to perform at their wedding reception on May 19. Speaking of their invitation, Entertainment Tonight's royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter said: "Ed Sheeran has yet to confirm but I'm not sure you turn down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle."
The "Shape of You" singer has previously joked that he will attend the special day.
Speaking at KIIS-FM’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball, he said he would be happy to perform "if I was free", adding: "I get asked this all the time like I know the royal family. I've met Harry once! That was in 2011 at his gran's Jubilee, and it was like, 'Hey,' 'Hey'... I barely know him!" Ed won't be the first star to perform at a royal wedding, as Ellie Goulding performed at Prince William and Kate's big day back in 2011. Speaking about the wedding, Ellie told Marie Claire: "In the weeks before, everyone I know was talking about the wedding, and I sat like [puts knuckles in her mouth], trying not to say anything. I kept it to myself for so long – but no one would have believed me anyway… I talked to William and Kate quite a bit. They're just a really awesome couple, lovely people, so I understand why people are fascinated by them."
Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding will also include a star-studded guest list, with Elton John among those thought to be attending, particularly after he cancelled two tour dates in Las Vegas over the weekend of their wedding. Tennis legend Serena Williams, James Blunt and the Beckhams are also tipped to be invited to the special day.
