According to the outlet, a film insider revealed, “Edward’s visit has been kept under wraps.” For the record, they have invited the senior royal as the guest of honor to the movie set who is “actually going to meet some of the stars, including Ariana.” The royal might also be joking about the star joining the coronation.

Despite their continued efforts to get pop stars to perform at the Coronation, no stars have been finalized as of now.

Meanwhile, other stars like Kingsley Hall, are taking into account the “recent rash of negative exposure” the Royals have endured. In light of the same, the after-party of one of the greatest occasions of the royal family seems anything but epic.
