Kensington Palace announced on Monday (April 9) that Harry and Meghan were requested that wedding gifts be made in the form of a donation to one of their favorite charities.

It is estimated that about 600 people were invited to Royal Wedding, which will take place at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday May 19. The ceremony will be immediately followed by a luncheon hosted by the Queen.

"The couple have personally chosen seven charities which represent a range of issues that they are passionate about, including sport for social change, women's empowerment, conservation, the environment, homelessness, HIV and the Armed Forces," Kensington Palace tweeted today (April 9). 

Meanwhile, wedding fun wont end with the Queen's luncheon. In fact, the "real party" is expected to begin when about 200 guests will attend a private reception at Frogmore House. The event, which will be hosted by Prince Charles, could have some celebrity star power. 

It has been rumored that Ed Sheeran may perform during the evening reception. We're not sure if Sheeran has actually spoken to the Royal Family about the gig, but it's nice to fantasize, right?
