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.

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.
