Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Announce Music and Performers for Royal Wedding

Playing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Name Wedding's Music Director and Performers

Forget "Here Comes the Bride" — Meghan Markle has something a little more regal in mind when it comes to tunes at next month's royal wedding.

Kensington Palace announced Tuesday that the bride and groom to-be have made some big musical choices for the May 19 event.

Running the program will be James Vivian, the director of music at St. George’s Chapel, where Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding will be held.

Vivian will personally conduct the Choir of St. George’s Chapel. The boys’ choir, made of students from St. George’s School in Windsor, was founded in 1348 and is known for performing all over Europe.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason, 19, the winner of television show BBC Young Musician in 2016, will be playing cello during their nuptials.

"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," Kanneh-Mason said. "What a privilege to be able to play the cello at such a wonderful event. I can’t wait!"

Christian gospel group The Kingdom Choir was also invited to sing at the wedding.

In addition, an orchestra made up of musicians from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia will be playing to the voice of singer Elin Manaham Thomas, a Welsh soprano.

Although Mel B of the Spice Girls seemed to reveal their 1990s girl group will be making a surprise reunion at the royal affair, the “Wannabe” singers didn’t appear to make the cut in the list released by Kensington Palace.
