Quick-thinking DJ slips Prince Harry his card and offers to play at wedding to Meghan Mark

A forward-thinking DJ slipped Prince Harry his business card on the off chance he needs somebody to play at his wedding to Meghan Markle.

The couple visited Reprezent radio station in Brixton yesterday, where local London DJ Jevanni Letford passed his card.

The enterprising 28-year-old told Harry and his ex-actress bride-to-be: ‘I’ll DJ at your wedding’.

Letford’s stunt raised a smile from Harry, who took the card and put it into his pocket.

After Harry and Meghan left the south London radio station, Letford joked that booking him to play the wedding would be ‘the second best decision’ Harry had made in his life – after asking the Suits star and activist to marry him.

The couple met presenters and staff from Reprezent FM, to find out how the station helps hundreds of young people every year.

Their visit attracted hundreds of royal fans, who lined the streets in chilly temperatures to catch a glimpse of the Prince and his bride-to-be.

The radio station offers training in media and employment skills in topics ranging from audio and radio production and editing, to communication skills and confidence building, work experience and volunteering.

Shane Carey, 46, founder and chief executive officer of Reprezent, who hosted the couple, said: ‘Since the visit was announced there’s been massive excitement in the station – much more than I could have expected. ‘We’re having the spotlight shone on us from all the world’s media pretty much, we’ve never had this attention.

‘The whole point of this is that the young people learn how to be creative and then shine with it and they’re really getting a chance now.’ While presenter Gloria Beyi, 17, said there had been ‘a lot of shock’ around the visit, adding: ‘For two people who are making headlines in the news to come to a place where there’s usually just a little column in the newspaper (about us) – I think a lot of people thought those two worlds would never collide.’

The pair, who announced their engagement in November, are due to tie the knot on May 19 in a ceremony at Windsor Castle.
