Ed Sheeran could be a huge part of this year's most anticipated marriage, having reportedly been asked to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

According to reports from media outlets including Us Weekly and ETT, the 'Shape of You' singer has been approached by Hazza to help him and his bride-to-be celebrate their big day.

Victoria Arbiter, ET's Royal Correspondent, said: "Ed Sheeran has yet to confirm but I'm not sure you turn down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"People love his romantic love songs so he's an ideal candidate for that first dance and I think Harry has always enjoyed Ed Sheeran."

She continued: "This is where everyone's really going to get down, this is for close friends and family.

"It's going to be hosted by Prince Charles and so I think if Ed Sheeran is going to be performing at any of them, it's going to be [the evening reception]."

Ed has previously talked about performing at their wedding. Speaking at KIIS-FM's iHeartRadio Jingle Ball back in December, he revealed he'd be more than happy to perform 'if he was free'.

He continued: "I get asked this all the time like I know the royal family. I've met Harry once!

"That was in 2011 at his grans' jubilee, and it was like: 'Hey.' 'Hey.'

"I barely know him!"

The wedding will be taking place on Saturday 19 May - that's right, the same day as the FA Cup Final, which Harry's brother William usually attends in his role as FA President - and the ceremony will be at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Unfortunately, we're not getting an extra bank holiday for this year's royal wedding bash - unlike 2011, when Prince William and Kate Middleton got married - but the good news is that we'll be getting a bit more time before last orders.

According to the Mirror, ministers have given the go-ahead for pubs and bars to extend their opening hours that weekend, meaning they will be able to stay open until 1am on both Friday 18 and Saturday 19 May.

Apparently, a public consultation seeking the views of the police and licensing authorities has already taken place, although quite what it took a month to find out we're not sure - as the answers seem pretty obvious.

Do you want an extra couple of hours to get trollied? Yes. Will pubs be happy about that? Yes. Will it mean paying more to have extra police on the streets? Yes. Will hangovers be worse that weekend? Most definitely.
