The Best Dressed Guests at the Royal Wedding

Best dressed guests at the royal wedding

It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for, the wedding of Prince Harry to former Suits star and style icon for the ages, Ms Meghan Markle. From this day forward they will be known, in formal situations at least, as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

What would a royal wedding be without a cavalry of celebrity attendees? The guest-list was as A-list as you would imagine, with Amal and George Clooney, Serena Williams, Victoria Beckham and Oprah Winfrey all in attendance. Here’s our best dressed list – all shoppable for you to get the look for your next daytime celebratory event.

Royal Wedding 2018 Idris Elba

Idris Elba & Sabrina Dhowre
Arguably the world’s most dapper human man, Idris Elba arrived in a classic navy suit with a peak lapel – simple and undone, like only he could. Meanwhile his fiancé Sabrina Dhowre wore head-to-toe Gucci, like the fashion queen she clearly is.
