Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s May 19 wedding drew a steady stream of high-profile guests, including Idris Elba, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, Carey Mulligan, James Corden, and Tom Hardy. While not every guest has a social media presence, several stars couldn’t help but gush with the public about their experience.

Here are some of the memories — and wedding gossip — shared by those who attended on the special day.

Oprah Winfrey

The iconic talk show host revealed that she had a last-minute dress drama after she determined that her Stella McCartney outfit was the wrong color. Luckily, it all came together in the end.


David and Victoria Beckham

Despite criticism that Victoria Beckham looked miserable as she arrived at St. George’s Chapel, the couple informally known as Posh and Becks posted messages sharing their excitement from the day.



Elton John

The singer, who performed at the lunchtime reception, and husband David Furnish also posted tributes to Markle and Prince Harry.



Suits cast

Markle’s former co-stars — including Sarah Rafferty, Gabriel Macht and wife Jacinda Barrett, Patrick J. Adams and wife Troian Bellisario, Abigail Spencer, Rick Hoffman, and Gina Torres — were a united front at the wedding, which Rafferty called a “sublime and emotional event.” Their trip to the U.K. wasn’t entirely without incident, however. Hoffman complained that his grimace during the ceremony was due to his repulsion over a fellow guest’s bad breath, while Adams posted, then deleted, a photo of a sleeping woman who had remarked earlier that he looked “chunky” at the wedding.








Priyanka Chopra

The actress said she teared up during the ceremony, and called her friend Markle the “epitome of grace.”


Joss Stone

Add singer Joss Stone to the list of satisfied guests. According to her Instagram, she also stayed at the same hotel where Markle spent her final night as a single woman.


Janina Gavankar

The former L Word star — who shared that many designers declined to dress her for the wedding — was “emotionally hung over” the next day.
