Do the bride & groom "know" these people like George Clooney, Oprah, Serena Williams,the Beckhams,Carey Mulligan, Tom Hardy & others.  Are these people their friends through the charity work they participate In?

 

 

It would be interesting to know if these guests actually did make a charitable donation instead of giving a gift.


Good question!

 

Both William and Harry are friendly with the Beckham's. They were also at William's wedding. Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra are friends of Meghan's. Elton John was a close friend of Diana's and has stayed in touch with both William and Harry. He also attended William's wedding.

 

The only connection I could find with Oprah:

 

 It has been reported that Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, is planning a "groundbreaking" interview with Winfrey to discuss racist media coverage of Markle, who is biracial, throughout her royal relationship.

 

"Oprah and Doria spent a long time chatting and they got on really well," an anonymous source told The Mirror. "The most important and significant issue they spoke about was race and how badly some people had reacted to Meghan and Harry."

 

"What happened to Meghan and Harry was disgusting and they and all of their families were horrified. It's an issue close to both Doria and Oprah, who have both suffered racism."It's important to note that these reports have not been confirmed — and it does seem a rather tenuous reason to invite Winfrey to this historic, once-in-a-generation event.

 

What I found interesting is the seating arrangements. Oprah, the Clooney's and Serena had seats right up front. The Beckham's, Elton John, and Priyanka were regulated to the cheap seats in back. I'd love to know how/why those arrangements were made. Even Diana's own family were regulated to the back.
