Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were treated to an Ed Sheeran-inspired serenade from a group of young people at a palace reception in Scotland on Tuesday. And the singers joked they could replace the Grammy winner at the couple’s reception!
New reports this week revealed that Sheeran was asked to perform at Harry and Meghan’s wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19. So, when the guitars-and-singing troupe from Impact Arts in Scotland performed at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, they knew what song to choose.
“A little birdie told us that Ed Sheeran would be playing at an upcoming wedding,” Sol Grieve Rae, 17, announced. “But if that falls through our diary is free.”
Then, as the group began singing an acoustic version of Sheeran’s hit song “Perfect,” Meghan, 36, couldn’t help but laugh while her fiancé cracked a smile.
“They just looked speechless. Meghan looked like she was going to cry,” Edinburgh College student Ciara MacDonald, 17, one of the singers, says. “To see the smiles on their faces as we sung is something we’ll always treasure. Meghan said it was wonderful singing and that they really enjoyed it.”
