Idris Elba Reveals Meghan Markle Gave Him to Playlist for DJing at Royal Wedding

"Yardie" - UK Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

Actor and DJ Idris Elba has revealed not only what he played at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but that Meghan helped choose the music.

The 46-year-old spoke to BBC Radio 1Xtra on Wednesday about DJing the 2018 wedding for the royal couple, and their many famous guests.

“A lot of tunes went off. Meghan sent me a playlist with some bare tune on it,” Elba said.

“There were some West Coast on it. That’s all I’m saying. I am not going to put their business out like that.”

Questioned if anything by the likes of Tupac or Dr. Dre was played, Elba kept quiet.

“Ask Meghan and Harry”.

Harry and Meghan were wed last May at Windsor Castle. Among their guests was the Queen, George and Amal Clooney, and David and Victoria Beckham.

Elba has previously opened up about being asked to DJ Meghan and Harry’s wedding reception, telling Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that he was dumbfounded.

“So Harry and I, we’ve hung out a couple of times through his dad’s charity, The Prince’s Trust, helped me out as a young actor,” he explained.

“And so I do a lot of work with them; met Harry and William a few times. And Harry came to a couple of parties that I DJed and he was like, ‘Hey man, what are you doing on that date?’ And I go, ’Ah nothing.’ And he goes, ‘Hmm, would you DJ at my wedding?'”

That’s when the 46-year-old actor offered the daytime talk show host a baffled expression, “I was like, ‘Is this a joke? Are you joking?'”

It was not a joke.
