A weekly overview of the chatter from Kensington Palace and beyond.

The 19-year-old cellist, who became the first black victor of the prestigious BBC Young Musician award in 2016, is among a group of artists and choral groups named as performers at Prince Harry and Ms Markle's wedding on May 19.

The couple will trade their wedding ceremony vows in entrance of 600 household, pals and colleagues at St George's Chapel at Windsor Citadel.

Speaking about the appointment, Phillip said in a statement: "So happy to be back with Julie, my Royal Wedding partner (we don't get to work together very often!) and the brilliant team at ITV News".

Kanneh-Mason is joined by Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir, a Christian gospel group based in southeast England that's "dedicated to creating a sound that demonstrates the community they share" and is known for "its united sound, warm energy, and enthusiastic performance", according to a press release. Yup, it's Markle, the soon-to-be wife of Prince Harry, who, obviously, was one of those informed. The cellist played for Prince Harry at a fundraising event previous year for the Antiguan charity the Halo Foundation.

So, in honor of her gorgeous hair, here are 35 times when Meghan Markle's hair made us totally jealous.

With just a few weeks before tying the knot, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are putting the finishing touches on their wedding!

The 19-year-old also revealed that he received a phone call from Ms Markle herself, asking him if he would play during their ceremony.

Cellist and BBC Young Musician 2016 Sheku Kanneh-Mason is among them, as is Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas.

"What a privilege to be able to play the cello at such a wonderful event".

First on the list of performers is the St. George's Chapel church choir. 'The music will be under the direction of James Vivian, Director of music, St George's Chapel, including the Choir of St George's Chapel, and a selection of choral groups, soloists and musicians'.
