Idris Elba Reveals The One Song Meghan Markle Requested At 2018 Wedding To Prince Harry

The Duchess of Sussex had
just one song request from Idris Elba, who acted as DJ during her wedding
reception to Prince Harry in 2018 – Dr. Dre’s ‘Still Dre’.

The Luther actor
revealed Meghan’s special request during an appearance co-hosting BBC
Radio 1Xtra’s Rap Show with Tiffany Calver which airs on Saturday.

Idris took to the decks
at the post-ceremony celebrations at Windsor Castle on 19 May 2018, and as
he discussed some of the key moments from his life he was asked songs the
guests were dancing to, to which he replied: “Still DRE by Dr. Dre went off! It
was Meghan’s choice.”

Idris was a guest at the
wedding alongside celebrity guests including George and Amal Clooney, Oprah
Winfrey, and Serena Williams.

He previously opened up about
the honor of performing at the ceremony, admitting on an episode of The
Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, that the royal couple are “good
friends and I wanted to make sure they had a good time, so there was a lot of
pressure”.

He added that it was the
“most stressful” gig he’s done, explaining: “This wasn’t like my
cousin’s wedding. This was like, you know, this wasn’t at the community hall,
the reception. This was a big deal.”

Elton John also provided
entertainment at the wedding reception with an impromptu sing-along. “It
was very, very wonderful to be there. To have a black gospel choir, a multiracial
bride, a black cellist, who was wonderful, a preacher —it felt like a party,
and it felt like progress had been made. Thank god, thank god,” he told
CNN.

Elton’s husband, David Furnish
also had a lovely time at the wedding: “What was so inspiring, and it
sounds corny, but, true love is what really shone through and that’s what
everybody felt, the sincerity and the integrity of that true love on the
day.”

California. They are parents to two-year-old son Archie and nine-month-old
daughter Lilibet.
