Idris Elba has described Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding as one of the ‘highlights’ of his life.
The 45-year-old actor attended the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding with his partner, Sabrina Dhowre, back in May of this year.
And he really loved it, apparently.
Speaking to the Observer, the director said: ‘I try not to talk too much about it because it was a private day, but it remains one of the highlights of my life, for sure.’
He also revealed he was invited to the wedding due to his friendship with Harry.
He said: ‘Harry’s a friend of mine. Just from round the way, haha! He’s a neighbourhood lad!’
Idris added: ‘It was a beautiful experience. Like all weddings are.’
The Wire actor feels the World Cup and Royal Wedding have brought people together this summer, as he said: ‘It just feels like it’s really opened up the spirit of the country.’
Idris is engaged to his partner Sabrina, who he met while filming in Canada, but the Yardie director had previously been vocal about not walking down the aisle again having being married twice before.
So what changed his mind?
Turns out, he just ‘fell in love’ and wants to be with Sabrina ‘for the rest of’ his life.
When asked if Harry and Meghan will be invited to the Elba wedding, he remained tight lipped out of fear of being misquoted.
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Got a story?
