It seemed like the entire world tuned in on Saturday to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

While all eyes were on the happy couple, ears were dazzled when 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason took the stage to perform for the wedding’s guests.

Those watching the grand celebration from home jumped to social media to express their newfound love for Kanneh-Mason’s playing.

While Kanneh-Mason’s delicate skill speaks volumes, his endearing journey has been well documented on his Twitter account.

“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,” he tweeted in April.

He also shared photos of himself on his way to the wedding.

As well as a snap with Bishop Michael Curry.

If the wedding didn’t fill the void in your cello-less heart, here’s a live performance from Kanneh-Mason covering Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry.”
