Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason Says Meghan Markle Personally Asked Him to Perform at Royal Wedding

When asked to perform at the nuptials by the ‘Suits’ alum, the 19-year-old musician ‘said yes immediately.’

Meghan Markle personally asked teenage cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason to perform at her wedding.

The 19 year old, who was named the BBC’s Young Musician of the Year in 2016, entertained wedding guests as Meghan and Prince Harry signed the official wedding registration book at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, England on Saturday, May 19.

“I was just soaking up the atmosphere,” he tells People. “To have the opportunity to perform for so many people, I was just really excited.

“I said yes immediately. It’s such an amazing event to have the opportunity to perform at. It was a surprise and such an honour. I’m definitely not used to playing at the royal weddings with famous faces watching. That was something that was just such an honour – to get to perform for these people.”

Sheku, who played Sicilienne, Apres un reve, Ave Maria, during the nuptials, adds, “I’m just so glad to have been a part of their special day.”
