Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Jet to Italy for Star-Studded Wedding


This weekend, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will enjoy an elaborate wedding that is not their own.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have flown to Italy to watch their good friend Misha Nonoo tie the knot with American oil tycoon Michael Hess, according to Page Six.

The royals reportedly flew commercial to Rome, where the lavish nuptials are expected to take place this weekend.

The wedding is set to be a star-studded event, as reports claim guests will also include Katy Perry and fiancé Orlando Bloom, supermodel Karlie Kloss and husband Joshua Kushner, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, singer Ellie Goulding, and Harry’s cousins Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Nonoo has been one of Markle's best friends for years and is rumored to have been the one who first introduced the former “Suits” actress to Harry.

The Bahrain-born designer also recently collaborated with Markle on a charity clothing line. Nonoo designed a white blouse for the Duchess’ capsule collection for Smart Works, a charity organization that provides unemployed women with professional attire and interview training.

Harry and Markle's trip to Rome comes just days before they are set to begin their official royal tour of Africa. On Monday, the Duke and Duchess, along with their four-month-old son Archie, will travel to South Africa where they will focus on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment.

Afterwards, Harry will continue on touring Malawi, Angola and Botswana, while Meghan and Archie return to England.

It’s been a busy summer of travel for the royal couple.

Earlier this month, Meghan made a solo trip to New York to watch Serena Williams in the finals at the US Open. Prior to that, the threesome traveled to Ibiza and France, where the environmental activists received backlash for flying private.

Harry later spoke out by saying he mostly flies commercial and only turns to private jets to maintain his family’s safety. And whenever the situation requires flying private, the 35-year-old added that he always makes sure to offset his carbon footprint.
