But where's Elton John?
As the nation prepares for Royal Wedding fever, the couple have started announcing further exciting details about their big day.
Harry and Meghan have now revealed who will be performing at the service, and it includes a former Britain's Got Talent musician.
19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who appeared on the ITV show in 2015, will be among the performers.
The 2016 Young Musician of the Year performed alongside his siblings The Kanneh-Masons on the talent show, and made it through to the semi-finals at the time. He has since gone on to have solo success in the classical world.
Sheku released his debut album, Inspiration, earlier this year, and he's also performed at the Baftas twice – the only musician to have ever been invited to perform two years in a row.
Sheku later wrote on Twitter: "I'm so excited and honoured to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. I was bowled over when Ms Markle called me to ask if I would play during the ceremony, and of course I immediately said yes!!! What a privilege. I can't wait!"

Kensington Palace also announced that the Choir of St George's Chapel would perform, directed by the chapel's Director of Music, James Vivian. Gospel conductor Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir will also perform at the service.
Sadly, still no news on Sir Elton John making an appearance, after he recently revealed he hadn't received an invite.
