US tennis champion Serena Williams, who is a close friend of Meghan, is reported to be another big name on the guest list.

Also rumoured to be attending the wedding in Windsor are the likes of musicians Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding, model Cara Delevingne and former Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh.

Meanwhile, Meghan Markle’s former co-stars from the legal drama Suits came together for a dinner on the eve of the Royal Wedding.

Patrick J. Adams, who plays Meghan’s on-screen husband, posted a picture of cast members seated around a table at a restaurant near to Windsor, where the bride-to-be will marry Prince Harry on Saturday.

The 36-year-old Canadian actor captioned the image: “The last supper #royalwedding.”

Other Suits stars at the table included Gina Torres, Sarah Rafferty and Rick Hoffman.

On Friday, the trio of actors appeared on NBC’s Today show to discuss the wedding.

Rafferty said: “We worked together for so many years on the show. It’s such an amazing experience.

“We were with each other for longer than we went to college or high school with our friends.

“We became family, in a way; we’re still family. So, this is a wonderful family affair.”

Meghan played Rachel Zane, a paralegal-turned-attorney, for seven seasons in Suits before announcing her departure following her engagement to Prince Harry.
