34 Celebrities Who Are Probably Waiting For Their Invites To The Royal Wedding

One perk of royal weddings is that they're decidedly not small affairs. (Prince William and Kate Middleton invited a whopping 1,900 guests to their wedding.) So, when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got engaged, one of our first questions was, naturally: Which celebrities can we hope to see at their wedding?
The pair have plenty of famous friends — how could an A+ list couple not be well connected? And while we don't know who will actually make the guest list, it's definitely fun to speculate.
There's also the question of whether or not President Trump will be invited to the wedding. Former President Barack Obama wasn't invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding because of "the added security costs his presence would have brought," The Telegraph reports. But that doesn't mean the same will necessarily hold true this time around — there's certainly a chance that President Trump will be invited.
Plus, plenty of fans are hoping that the Obamas will be invited this time around. There might be less security required if Obama isn't a sitting president, and Prince Harry has spent time with both Barack and Michelle Obama in the past.
We've rounded up our dream guests for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding — hopefully we'll see at least some of the people on this list at the royal affair.

Patrick J. Adams

Markle's Suits costar (and onscreen fiancé) has defended her in various interviews, including a Reddit AMA. We'd have to imagine that after working with Markle for years, he'll score an invite to the wedding.

Sarah Rafferty & Gina Torres

If Adams gets invited to the wedding, we'd guess that Markle's other Suits costars will, too.

Abigail Spencer

While we're at it, Spencer is another Suits co-star who's likely to be invited to the royal wedding.

Prince Harry joined Rihanna in her home of Barbados last year, during a celebration to mark 50 years of Barbados' independence. The two of them were both tested for HIV publicly at the time. And really, who wouldn't love to see RiRi at a royal wedding? She'd totally be the life of the party.

Priyanka Chopra

The Quantico star met Markle at Elle's Women in Television event in 2016. She later criticized Vanity Fair's feature on Markle for its focus on Prince Harry, and not Markle's own achievements.

Cara Delevingne

The model and actress has been friends with Prince Harry for years, along with Margot Robbie and Suki Waterhouse. Apparently, they're close enough that Delevingne has been known to drunk text the royal!

Margot Robbie

Last year, Robbie joked that she takes "weeks" to return Prince Harry's texts. She also told E! News that when she met the royal at a party, she thought he was Ed Sheeran. Despite the gaffe, though, it sounds like the two are close pals now, so we're guessing the I, Tonya star will be invited to the wedding.

Suki Waterhouse

Along with Delevingne and Robbie, Harry has run in the same social circles as Waterhouse. In fact, it was apparently at a party at Waterhouse's that Robbie didn't recognize Prince Harry.

David & Victoria Beckham

Prince William has worked on various campaigns with David Beckham, and Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham are reportedly friends as well. Plus, the Beckhams are basically British royalty, right? Hopefully we'll see them at the wedding festivities.

Barack & Michelle Obama

Prince Harry spent the past Halloween with Michelle Obama, talking to high schoolers in Chicago. Given the Obamas' high-profile status and the fact that they've already met Prince Harry, we're hoping they'll be at his wedding.

Eddie Redmayne

Redmayne and Prince William went to high school together at Eton College — what better time to catch up than at a wedding?

Elton John

The singer was friends with Princess Diana, so the couple might choose to honor her legacy by inviting him to the ceremony.

Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis

The couple is friends with Princess Beatrice. So if she pulls some strings, maybe the princess could score Kutcher and Kunis a wedding invite.

Sam Branson

Richard Branson's son is close friends with Prince Harry — the royal even went to Branson's 21st birthday party.

Joss Stone

The Grammy winner is friends with Prince Harry, and they performed together at a charity concert in 2016.

Arthur Landon

Like Eddie Redmayne, the filmmaker also went to Eton College with Prince Harry. If the couple decides to invite both of them, the wedding would be a mini-reunion of sorts.

Serena Williams

Williams and Markle are close friends, and Markle was invited to Williams' wedding to Alexis Ohanian. So it wouldn't be a surprise if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle returned the favor.

Ellie Goulding

The singer performed at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding reception, so it wouldn't be a surprise if she attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, too.

Millie Mackintosh

The Made in Chelsea star is reportedly one of Markle's closest friends in the U.K.

Misha Nonoo

The British-born designer is already being discussed as a frontrunner among possible wedding dress designers for Markle. She and Markle are close friends and have vacationed together in the past.

Jessica Mulroney

The stylist has worked with Markle for years, and the two of them have also taken vacations together. It's safe to guess that Mulroney will be on the royal wedding guest list.

James Blunt

The singer once served alongside Prince Harry in the army, and they've stayed friends since then.

Roland Mouret

Markle and the designer are longtime friends, so we wouldn't be surprised to see him in the royal wedding crowds.

Janina Gavankar

Gavankar, who's acted in True Blood and The Vampire Diaries, has been friends with Markle for more than a decade.

Rod Stewart

Stewart is a longtime friend of Prince Charles, so perhaps Prince Charles could put in a good word with his son to get Stewart on the wedding guest list.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Okay, this one's a little bit of a stretch. DiCaprio is friends with Prince Albert II of Monaco. Still, he's Hollywood royalty! So we wouldn't rule out the possibility of him scoring a wedding invite.

Olivia Palermo

Markle once called Palermo her "style crush," so an appearance at the wedding isn't out of the question.

Chris Martin

Prince Harry and the Coldplay frontman had fun onstage together during a charity event in 2016. Martin would probably love to replicate the antics at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding reception.

Dominic West

The actor once trekked to the South Pole with Prince Harry — we'd say that earned him a wedding invitation.

Lindsay Roth

Roth, the author of What Pretty Girls Are Made Of, met Markle during a class at Northwestern. And we'd have to guess that Markle will invite at least one of her college friends to the wedding.
