Among the 600 celebrity guests invited to the St. George Chapel were internationally acclaimed Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, Elton John, Tom Hardy, James Corden, James Blunt and Carey Mulligan among others.
Tennis star Serena Williams and rugby star Jonny Wilkinson were also present.

When an Indian sari graced royal wedding
Activist Suhani Jalota, who runs Myna Mahila Foundation, attended the royal wedding of Prince Hary and Meghan Markle on Saturday in an elegant sari designed by Indian brand Raw Mango run by designer Sanjay Garg.
“We are excited that we were able to represent and create something more than what meets the eyes – the sari is a symbol that is rooted in culture, heritage and history, which speaks to one’s individuality & identity, therefore becoming a medium to express oneself.” Sanjay Garg, Textile Designer and Founder, Raw Mango told.
Myna Mahila foundation empowers women to speak about issues they are most afraid to discuss aloud – they encourage and employ women from urban slums in Mumbai to manufacture and sell affordable sanitary pads back into their communities, improving menstrual hygiene, providing stable employment, and building a trusted network.
Suhani met Meghan in 2016 when the former went to give an acceptance speech at the Glamour College Women of the Year Awards.
