Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shock fans with song choice for first dance
Their forthcoming nuptials will be the highlight of the British summer.
But those who are expecting a dull, conservative wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should think again – especially after song plans for their first dance were revealed.
According to insiders, the couple have gone against convention for their ceremonial boogie, which will kick-start the star-studded reception on 19 May.
Bizarrely, the couple are said to have chosen Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) to soundtrack their very first dance as husband and wife.
A rather unconventional choice, it’s all pasty of a ‘fun and bouncy’ playlist, according to The Sun .
They say that the evening’s soundtrack is deliberately designed to be tongue-in-cheek for maximum frivolity among the 1,200 wedding guests.
A number of other tracks from the 1980s are also expected to be aired.
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also set to be live music from special guest Elton John, who cancelled two Las Vegas concerts to attend the royal event at Windsor Castle.
Insiders say a grand piano will be onside for the crooner to play during the reception.
However, those hoping for a performance from The Spice Girls will be sorely disappointed – as those rumours have already been shot-down.
Similarly, Chris Martin’s Coldplay also won’t be taking to the stage, despite whispers to the contrary.
The latest development comes shortly after the royal family confirmed the American actress’s dad will walk her down the aisle when she ties the knot with the sixth in line to the throne.
A spokesman said that the wedding day will also “celebrate the memory” of Princess Diana with her three siblings invited and her sister Lady Jayne Fellows giving the reading.
Unusually, Meghan will not have a maid of honour and will instead only have children as bridesmaids on the day, whose names will be announced a few days before the wedding.
But it has also been revealed Prince Philip, who is recovering from a recent hip replacement, might be unable to attend.
