“I’m so excited and honoured to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding ... I was bowled over when Ms Markle called me to ask if I would play during the ceremony - and of course I immediately said 'yes!'" the 19-year-old former BBC Young Musician of the Year winner has said.
"What a privilege to be able to play the cello at such a wonderful event ... I can’t wait!” he has said.
It's understood Prince Harry recently attended a performance by Sheku at an Antiguan charity event in London.
It has also been confirmed conductor Christopher Warren-Green will lead an ensemble during the Royal church ceremony - comprising musicians from the Philharmonia and English Chamber orchestras.
