Sam Smith wants to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Windsor Castle royal wedding
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement to the world Monday morning.
The happy couple, who have been dating since July 2016, are set to tie the knot in a royal wedding at Windsor Castle.
Everyone from the Queen and Prince Philip, to Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton have sent their congratulations to the couple.
Announcing details of the special day, Kensington Palace revealed the couple will wed in May 2018, with a specific date to be confirmed.
The short window of just six months isn’t long to get all the arrangements together – not to mention the small matter of US actress Meghan becoming a British citizen.
Fortunately one celeb has offered their services as a wedding singer, to knock one job off the to-do list.
Oscar winner Sam Smith says he would be more than happy to sing at the royal wedding.
The Stay With Me singer told The Sun: “I’m obsessed. I want to sing at the wedding. Oh my God I’d love to, it would be a dream.”
He added: “I’d have to wear a dress and a crown though.”
Harry and Meghan are yet to reveal and details of the wedding beyond where it will be and the month.
Some more details could come tomorrow, when they make their first official engagement at an event held by HIV charity Terrence Higgins Trust.
Kensington Palace confirmed the pair will make their first joint appearance at a royal engagement on Friday, which is World AIDS Day.
The pair will attend an event in Nottingham run by Terrence Higgins Trust.
The palace said: “Prince Harry and Ms Markle will undertake their first official engagements together in Nottingham this Friday.
“Prince Harry is looking forward to introducing Ms Markle to a community that has become very special to him.
“They will visit a Terrence Higgins Trust #WorldAIDSDay charity fair where they will meet representatives of organisations supporting people living with HIV/AIDS.”
Ian Green, CEO, Terrence Higgins Trust, told PinkNews: ‘We’re delighted to welcome Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Nottingham Contemporary this Friday, for a #SeeRed event to mark World AIDS Day.”
He added: “We’re really looking forward to introducing both him and Meghan to some wonderful individuals and groups who help to combat HIV stigma in the UK.”
Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, was a groundbreaking advocate for HIV AIDS support, famously shaking the hand of an HIV-positive man at a time when many wrongly believed HIV was contagious.
