The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - HARRY & MEGHAN -

MEGHAN Markle’s tele­vi­sion fam­ily brought Hol­ly­wood glam­our to the royal red car­pet at Wind­sor Cas­tle.

The stylish stars of the hit series Suits turned heads as they strolled in to­gether to St Ge­orge’s Chapel to cel­e­brate their for­mer cast­mate’s big­gest day.

Ahead of the nup­tials, Sarah Raf­ferty, who por­trays Donna Paulsen, said: “We worked to­gether for so many years. We were with each other longer than we went to high school. This is a won­der­ful fam­ily af­fair.”

The Suits brigade in­cluded Markle’s on-screen hus­band Pa­trick J. Adams, Rick Hoff­man, Abigail Spencer and Gabriel Macht and his Aus­tralian wife Jacinda Barrett. The Queens­land-born ac­tress was strik­ing in a ma­roon dress and match­ing asym­met­ri­cal fas­ci­na­tor, while her hus­band, who plays cocky Har­vey Specter on Suits, wore a morn­ing suit with a match­ing ma­roon tie.

Bol­ly­wood ac­tress and for­mer Suits star Priyanka Cho­pra ar­rived dressed in a laven­der Vivienne West­wood skirt-and-blazer combo paired with a classy hat.

“It’s not just go­ing to be life-chang­ing for both of them, it’s life-chang­ing for the world,” she said re­cently.

Join­ing them was a mix of fa­mous faces, from movies and mu­sic to sport.

Even two of Prince Harry’s ex­girl­friends were in the crowd — Chelsy Davy in classic navy and Cres­sida Bonas, in a bright, striped dress.

Bri­tish film star Carey Mul­li­gan and her hus­band, Mum­ford And Sons lead singer Mar­cus Mum­ford, were in­vited, along with a bald-headed Tom Hardy and his wife, Peaky Blin­ders star Char­lotte Ri­ley.

Hardy’s new look, for his lat­est role as Al Capone in the film Fonzo, shocked the re­gal crowd. You’re Beau­ti­ful crooner and for­mer Bri­tish army of­fi­cer James Blunt was on the guest list along with fel­low singer Joss Stone.

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, UK PM Theresa May, Barack Obama and other lead­ers were not in­vited be­cause the cou­ple deemed their wed­ding was not a state event

Pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion his­to­rian Dan Snow, whose doc­u­men­taries are a fix­ture on Fox­tel, was also in the chapel.

Polo su­per­star and for­mer Ralph Lau­ren model Na­chos Figueras and his wife Del­fina Blaquier made a hand­some en­trance. Last week, Prince Harry’s old polo buddy said: “I’m so happy he has found Meghan. Hope­fully they will be very, very happy.”

And no mod­ern Royal Wed­ding is com­plete with­out Bri­tish mu­sic su­per­star El­ton John on the guest list. A dear friend of Harry; s mum Princess Diana, the 71-year-old at­tended the wed­ding with his hus­band David Fur­nish.

Princess Diana’s for­mer but­ler Paul Bur­rell at­tempted to gain en­try to an area of Wind­sor Cas­tle be­fore be­ing turned away by se­cu­rity. He was last week slammed for giv­ing a TV in­ter­view where he claimed he first met Prince Harry when he placed his hand on Diana’s preg­nant belly and felt him kick.
