The whole world witnessed the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, respectively), over the weekend. Since Meghan is a former actress, it was expected that some of her Suits co-stars and several A-list friends were going to attend the ceremony. But we didn’t expect these familiar faces to show up at the much-anticipated wedding.

Prince Philip

At 96, the Duke of Edinburgh stole the show during the Royal Wedding. His attendance at his grandson’s wedding was in doubt, as he recently had hip surgery weeks before the said wedding. To the whole world’s surprise, he was in full attendance without any aide!


Sarah, Duchess of York

The infamous ex-Royal was snubbed at the wedding of William and Catherine, but reports say that Harry made sure that she gets an invite on his nuptials with Meghan. And indeed it was surprising to see her presence at the wedding, arriving on her own.


Oprah Winfrey

The media mogul was one of the first guests to arrive at St. George’s chapel, stunning everyone with her blush double-tiered Stella McCartney ensemble.

James Blunt

James Corden

The Carpool Karaoke and talk show host brought his wife, Julia Carey, as his plus one.

The A-list actress and her rocker husband were in attendance at the wedding, with the couple and Harry’s friendship goes way back.
