Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to have an unconventional Royal wedding. The song that they are rumored to have chosen for their first dance is quite upbeat.


It has been reported by The Sun, that the artist who sings the famous track is the late Whitney Houston. The two are set to be married on May 19, 2018.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not be having a dull and conservative wedding. This is quite evident with their first dance song choice which is Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me).

The pair is said to want a 'fun and bouncy' playlist which they’ve organized with the help of friends and family. A number of other tracks from the 1980s are also expected to be featured on that day.


Daily Mail stated that the speculation surrounding the Houston track came after Markle revealed that it is her go-to 'happy song.' She shared this during her 2016 interview with Lifestyle Magazine.

For their live music, the couple will have a special guest, Elton John. He canceled two Las Vegas concerts to attend the Royal event at Windsor Castle.



‘They want it to be fun and reflective of themselves as a couple and of their family and friends that will be there. It will still very much be a royal wedding – just not a traditional one.’

Insiders have shared that a grand piano will be available for the singer to play during the reception. The Spice Girls and Coldplay won't be taking to the stage, despite the rumors that went around.

The Royal Family has confirmed that the American actress's father would walk her down the aisle on her wedding day. It’s been reported that Markle would use couturiers Ralph & Russo to make the first of two gowns.


The wedding as also set to be a celebration of Princess Diana’s memory with her three siblings being invited. Diana’s sister Lady Jane Fellowes is expected to give the reading at the wedding.

Her other siblings, Charles Spencer and Lady Sarah McCorquodale will also be in attendance according to OK! Markle is not going to have a maid of honor and will instead only have children as bridesmaids on the day.

Harry and Markle will not go on a honeymoon until later in the summer. They will perform their first public engagement as husband and wife only days after their wedding.

Prince Philip, who is recovering from a recent hip replacement, might be unable to attend the big event.
