Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding day dubbed a “fairy tale” by choir member Simon Whiteley, who gushed over the ceremony in recent interview.

Whiteley, who sang at the ceremony, gushed over the event, saying, “Harry and Meghan’s wedding was like being an extra in a fairytale.”
“It was like a total dream and just amazing to have been a part of such a really very happy occasion,” he added while revealing that the royal family asked music director James Vivian to perform at the wedding.
Dishing on the memorable event, he said that the whole team was excited for the wedding but there was nervousness as well as it was such a momentous event.

Whiteley has also performed at other historic osscasions, including Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021 and Queen Elizabeth II’s memorial service last year.

Further gushing over the late monarch, he said, “She was an absolutely incredible woman.
