Early Breakfast with Gary King 4am - 6am
We can't help but wonder what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will choose...
Prince Charles & Princess Diana
None other than legendary American bandleader Lester Lanin and his orchestra were the lucky ones chosen to perform at the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding in 1981, treating the guests to jazz favourites such as Irving Berlin's 'They Say It's Wonderful'. Lanin also performed at Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer of Monaco's engagement party, while he also was the act of choice for Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley.
Prince William & Kate Middleton
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went all out best-of-British for their wedding reception in 2011, choosing Elton John's 'Your Song' as their first dance, performed by none other than Ellie Goulding. Speaking to People, the then 24-year-old later said, “I did their first dance and like, talk about scary. I was so nervous, my hands were shaking.”
Zara Phillips & Mike Tindall
Princess Anne's daughter married just three months after her cousin William. Frank Sinatra's 'I've Got You Under My Skin' was the Olympic silver medalist and rugby player's first dance song of choice, most likely chosen by the groom, who once named Sinatra as his dream dinner party guest.
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle
So who do we think Prince Harry and Meghan will have performing at their wedding in May this year? For now it's all under wraps, of course, however they have been made offers by the likes of Stormzy and Sam Smith, who said it "would be a pleasure", and even Ed Sheeran. We're sure Meghan has many star-studded entries in her contact book and of course it would be an honour to perform at a Royal wedding, so we're sure whoever performs will be a worthy headliner!
