Idris Elba admits Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding was ‘most stressful’ gig ever

Idris Elba has admitted deejaying at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding reception was his “most stressful” gig to date.

Alongside being an a-list actor, the 49-year-old is a well-known DJ and was personally asked to perform at the couple’s wedding reception at Frogmore House on May 19, 2018.

During a new interview with the Daily Mail, Idris was asked to share his “most stressful” gig ever, and he replied: “The [royal] wedding, no doubt.”

“This wasn’t like my cousin’s wedding,” he explained. “This wasn’t at the community hall… This was a big, big deal.”

The Luther star, who was also invited to their wedding ceremony, confessed: “They’re good friends and I wanted to make sure they had a great time, so there was a lot of pressure.”

Idris also revealed Meghan sent him a list of songs she wanted played during the reception.

“Meghan had sent me a playlist, so I knew what she wanted already,” he explained.

Back in 2019, Idris revealed how he ended up deejaying at their wedding reception on The Ellen Show.

He said: “So Harry and I have hung out a couple of times through his dad’s [Prince Charles] charity – The Prince’s Trust – which helped me out when I was a young actor.”

“Harry came to a couple of parties that I deejayed and he was like, ‘What are you doing on [May 19]?’ I told him nothing and then he asked if I would DJ at his wedding… I was like is this a joke?” he laughed.

Aside from the British royal family, Idris ended up playing tunes for some major stars on the night, including wedding guests Serena Williams and George Clooney.
