For the best day of her life, Meghan Markle has concocted a tailor-made schedule. The Duchess of Sussex has asked actor Idris Elba to sit behind the decks for a frenzied evening marking her union with Prince Harry. A frenzied evening on which the star returned to the columns of the Daily Mail. “Meghan had sent me a playlist with songs to play, so I knew what she wanted,” revealed the American star, explaining that these performances are “very stressful”.
Asked what he found most stressful, however, he replied without a hint of hesitation: “Marriage, of course. It wasn’t like my cousin’s wedding. … was something very, very big. ” A royal wedding like Idris Elba had certainly never experienced!
Idris Elba under “a lot of pressure”
Idris Elba is close to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. He did everything to give them the best evening. “They are good friends and I wanted them to have a blast, so I was under a lot of pressure,” he added.
Guest on BBC Radio 1Xtra, in July 2019, the producer revealed the content of the long list of songs that Meghan Markle wanted to hear during the festivities. Among this music, sounds of rappers from the West Coast – Dr Dre, Tupac, Snoop Dogg? The Wire star, however, did not want to disclose more: “I’m not saying anything! Ask Meghan and Harry,” he had amused. Prince Harry’s wife has also reportedly asked to listen to Whitney Houston. Enough to make the guests dance until the end of the night!
