Ed Sheeran to per­form at the royal wed­ding?

Mail Today - - HOLLYWOOD -

HE pre­vi­ously showed in­ter­est in per­form­ing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wed­ding. And singer Ed Sheeran might have landed the dream gig as the 26 year-old singer has re­port­edly been asked to sing at the highly an­tic­i­pated royal nuptials sched­uled in May.

The Per­fect hit­maker has al­ready been ap­proached by Prince Harry to help the cou­ple cel­e­brate their big day.

A source said: “Prince Harry has per­son­ally re­quested Ed per­form at his wed­ding.”

Royal wed­ding fever has been revving up since the en­gage­ment an­nounce­ment was made in Novem­ber, with Ed be­ing hotly tipped to per­form since the ex­cit­ing news broke.

While it’s not known whether he’s agreed to the gig, the idea of play­ing at the royal event has crossed Ed’s mind be­fore.

Af­ter re­ceiv­ing his MBE from Prince Charles in De­cem­ber, Ed was quizzed about whether he would say yes to if he was asked to per­form on the big day.

When asked if he’d like to sing for Charles’ son and the for­mer Suits ac­tress at their cer­e­mony at Wind­sor Chapel next May, he said: “Yeah, why not!”

It was not the first time Ed has been sin­gled out as a po­ten­tial mu­si­cal act — telling KIIS FM in De­cem­ber that would play “If I was free”.

“I get asked this all the time like I know the Royal fam­ily. I’ve met

Harry once — that was in 2011 at his grans’ Ju­bilee, and it was like, “Hey. Hey” ... I barely know him!’ he con­tin­ued.

In De­cem­ber, Ed ap­peared to make some good head­way get­ting into the newly-en­gaged royal’s good books — af­ter help­ing Harry raise money for char­ity. The Grammy-win­ning artist re­cently signed Jamie Law­son to his la­bel Ginger­bread Man Records, who re­leased a char­ity sin­gle for Walk­ing With The Wounded — an or­gan­i­sa­tion that Prince Harry is pa­tron of.

His con­nec­tions to the Royal Fam­ily don’t stop there as he re­port­edly

The singer made some good head­way last year by help­ing Harry raise money for char­ity

had his face sliced by Princess Beatrice at a party last Novem­ber as she mock­knighted James Blunt with a sword.

Ed is isn’t the only Bri­tish artist to po­ten­tially through his hat into the ring, with Sam Smith, 25, also show­ing in­ter­est in help­ing the Prince and his ac­tress beauty cel­e­brate their big day.

But on Wed­nes­day, he said that he won’t be lend­ing his vo­cal prow­ess to the up­com­ing royal nuptials, which hap­pens to be on the same day as his birth­day.

In a re­cent TV in­ter­view, Sam Smith said: “That would be amaz­ing, but no, that’s def­i­nitely not hap­pen­ing.”
