Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrive at Misha Nonoo’s sunset Rome wedding

Meghan Markle arrived in a £8,900 ($13,500) Valentino dress alongside Prince Harry for the wedding of fashion designer Misha Nonoo and her oil tycoon fiancé today, joining other star-studded guests including Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and James Corden.

Ms Nonoo, 31, was chauffeured in alongside Eugenie on a golf buggy ahead of the fashionista’s wedding to businessman Michael ‘Mikey’ Hess, 33, in Rome on Friday evening. 

A chorus of cheers erupted as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived, Prince Harry wearing black tie and Meghan pairing gold earrings with the black puff-sleeve embroidered tulle gown. The expensive dress, which has sequin embellishments and wraparound fastening, is made in Italy.

Ms Nonoo is a close friend of Prince Harry and Meghan and is rumoured to have set the pair up.  

The bride wore a minimalist white dress on arrival, while Eugenie, 29, wore a black evening gown, as other guests in black tie surrounded their vehicle.  

Armed guards watched over as a more ornate white gown – believed to be the bride’s dress – was unloaded from the back of an SUV at the Villa Aurelia, an exclusive 17th Century venue in the heart of the city. Ms Nonoo has previously spoken of how she designed her own wedding dress, but said it was a hard thing to do.  

Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka arrived in a peach gown alongside her husband Jared Kushner, who is currently senior adviser to his father-in-law the President of the United States. While Katy Perry opted for a pink dress as she arrived alongside her fiancé Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom.

This will be the first marriage for Hess, who is from one of America’s wealthiest families, and the second for Nonoo, who was previously wed to Paddle8 founder Alexander Gilkes. 

Hess grew up in New York City and went to Harvard College, and Harvard Business School. DailyMail.com revealed the couple’s engagement, obtaining the first photo of Nonoo’s sizable diamond ring, seen on the designer earlier this year in New York.

Who are Misha Nonoo and Michael Hess? The A-list designer and matchmaker believed to have introduced Meghan to Harry and her oil tycoon fiancé who is best friends with Josh Kushner

Born in Bahrain, Misha Nonoo’s father is an Iraqi businessman, her mother is English.

The family moved to the UK when she was 11 and she attended the ACS International school in Cobham (where full boarding and tuition fees are now a stonking £45,560 a year).

She then spent two years in Paris, before taking a job in a small tailoring firm in New York.

She has said that she wanted to be a clothes designer since she was 11 years old. Within ten years, she had achieved that ambition via a fashion collection — initially only of jackets and coats.

A few seasons later, she had been dubbed ‘one to watch’ in New York. 

Nonoo’s stellar social profile in New York did her professional success no harm, and her profile was raised when she married Old Etonian Alexander Gilkes. 

Misha’s 2012 wedding to Gilkes, the son of a wealthy dermatologist, was a three-day bash in a 16th-century castle in Venice, with a live performance by singer Lana Del Rey.

Given that Meghan said this week that she knew almost nothing about Prince Harry before she met him, it’s interesting to note that Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice attended the Gilkes-Nonoo wedding in 2012.

Not only that, Meghan’s ‘sister’ Misha also went to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton the year before.

This will be the first marriage for Hess and the second for Nonoo, who was previously wed to Paddle8 founder Alexander Gilkes. 

Michael Hess is from one of America’s wealthiest families, with grandfather Leon the founder of the multi-billion-dollar Hess Corporation. 

His father John is now the CEO of the company while Michael has racked up an impressive C.V of his own, having worked at Goldman Sachs and the Royal Hashemite Court after graduating from Harvard and Harvard Business School.

It was Harvard that he met best friend Josh Kushner.

He has also been friends with model Heidi Klum for several years and, in 2016, was spotted in animated conversation with Princess Beatrice.  

Along with his bride-to-be Misha, Michael attended Harry and Meghan’s wedding last year. 

As well as having worked in finance, Hess also has a philanthropic side having supported both the Pediatric Heart Center at Boston’s Children’s Hospital and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Princess Beatrice, 31, was spotted wearing a diamond headband decorated with gold and pearl flowers as she mingled with other guests ahead of the wedding, including renowned handbag designer Poppy Jamie, 29.

Hollywood TV personality James Corden waved to the paparazzi as he arrived wearing a pair of shades with his dinner suit.

And Ivanka Trump, sporting her new short hairstyle, stepped out of a blacked out SUV in a gorgeous peach gown alongside her husband Jared Kushner, in Rome this evening for the wedding. The 37-year-old made a stunning arrival at the glamorous ceremony, after flying to Rome on a commercial flight from Washington, D.C. on Thursday night.

Among the last to arrive were Katy Perry, 34, and Orlando Bloom, 42, the pop-star wore large-rimmed white sunglasses with a pink dress, while Bloom wore a midnight blue tuxedo. 

Other guests included Karlie Kloss who donned a black thigh-split feathered gown as she joined the star-studded guest list at the wedding. The model added to her look with matching black feathered heels as she made her way into the villa for the ceremony.

Singer and former Beatle Paul McCartney also arrived at the wedding alongside his wife Nancy Shevell. Mr McCartney wore a dinner jacket, while his wife sported a floral dress.

The couple are close friends with Misha and spent the summer of 2018 holidaying around the Mediterranean on record producer David Geffen’s lavish yacht. Misha and Paul were also joined by Karlie Kloss during the getaway, with the model also spotted at Misha’s wedding on Friday. 

Ivanka Trump earlier today jetted into Rome with her husband Jared Kushner. Donald Trump’s daughter, 37, and her White House adviser husband, 38, strolled the Eternal City’s narrow streets close to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain ahead of the A-list wedding of the year at sunset tonight.

At one point mother-of-three Ivanka, wearing a colourful summer dress, retro sunglasses and white espadrille wedges kissed her husband on the shoulder as they smiled in the early autumn sunshine. 

Mr Hess who is heir to the family’s £1.9billion empire, is best friends with Jared’s brother Josh, 34, who he met at Harvard and is already in Rome with his wife Karlie Kloss, dining with Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom at a rehearsal dinner last night.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also in the Italian capital – but without baby Archie – and the couple have kept a low profile missing out on dinner with A-list stars who partied ahead of the three-day wedding of their matchmaker Misha.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in the Italian capital on Thursday to attend the nuptials of designer friend, who is rumoured to have set-up the royals’ first blind date in July 2016.  

Ms Nonoo and Mr Hess will walk down the aisle as the sun goes down at Villa Aurelia, a baroque villa and vineyard once owned Pope Paolo III that sits on one of Rome’s seven hills and enjoys extraordinary panoramic views of the city.

The party will continue on Saturday with another expensive event at the celebrated Cinecittà film studios. More than 3,000 movies have been filmed there including 47 Oscar winning ones such as La Dolce Vita and Cleopatra.  It has been so loved by directors including Fellini, Scorcese and Ford Coppola it has earned the nickname ‘Hollywood on the Tiber.’  

Harry and Meghan were spotted arriving in Rome without their five-month-old son yesterday – their ninth flight in six weeks including four on board private jets. 

A royal source told The Sun: ‘They did fly commercial [to Rome] as Meghan was a bit stung by the criticism over her and Harry’s use of private jets.’  

Ahead of appeared high as the stars mingled with wedding guests at the rehearsal dinner the night before the ceremony today.

 Princess Beatrice and her sister Eugenie are also expected to attend the nuptials, along with Harry and Meghan, though they too went unnoticed at the late-night party. 

Katy Perry and fiancé Orlando Bloom did attend, however, and were pictured engrossed in conversation with their fellow attendees – though the couple did find time to share a kiss.

Another couple who looked delighted to be at the event were Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner, who giggled together as they mingled with guests.  

Royal correspondent Emily Andrews tweeted yesterday that Harry and Meghan were ‘seen arriving in Rome’ ahead of the nuptials, but there was no royal presence at the rehearsal dinner.

The Duke and Duchess reportedly travelled by commercial plane having left Archie at home and are enjoying some downtime ahead of their 10-day African royal tour, which kicks off on Monday. 

Misha, who recently collaborated with the Duchess of Sussex on her Smart Works charity clothing range, has no shortage of famous friends and the wedding promises to be a glittering affair. 

MailOnline contacted Buckingham Palace, with a spokesperson saying that they wouldn’t provide ‘comment on Their Royal Highnesses’s private schedule’.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took COMMERCIAL flight to Rome for wedding of Duchess’s matchmaker friend Misha Nonoo 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are believed to have caught yet another flight as they arrived in Rome today for the wedding of Meghan’s friend Misha Nonoo.

Prince Harry and Meghan are said to have travelled to Italy – on what is their ninth plane journey in just over six weeks – without baby Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

The pair are thought to be enjoying some downtime at the nuptials at Cinecittà film studios tomorrow before they begin their royal tour to South Africa on Monday.

Harry and Meghan were spotted arriving in Rome today, but Buckingham Palace refused to confirm whether they flew by a commercial or private jet.

However, a source told The Sun: ‘They did fly commercial as Meghan was a bit stung by the criticism over her and Harry’s use of private jets.’ 

The Sussexes attracted scorn last month for catching four private flights in 11 days to Ibiza and Nice, despite their vociferous campaigning on environmental issues.   

Harry and Meghan are unlikely to be the only royals in attendance, with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie among Misha’s close friends. Queen Rania of Jordan is also rumoured to be invited. 

Supermodel Karlie Kloss is another friend of the bride, while husband Joshua Kushner is a close friend of the groom’s. 

News outlets have reported that Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner might also have been invited, although it is unclear whether they are actually friends of the couple.

Perry and Bloom, who recently attended Ellie Goulding’s wedding, are expected to attended, as well as Oprah’s BFF and US TV host Gayle King, who was also invited to the Duchess of Sussex’s baby shower in February.  

This will be the first marriage for Hess and the second for Nonoo, who was previously wed to Paddle8 founder Alexander Gilkes. 

Designer Misha, who grew up in Bahrain, is believed to have set up the former actress on her first date with the Duke of Sussex in 2016, although this has never been confirmed. 

She was one of the attendees at the Royal Wedding in May, and was a guest at the Duchess of Sussex’s baby shower in February. 

Nonoo is the daughter of an Iraqi businessman and English mother, and at the age of 11 moved to London with her family.

She is also Jewish, as is Hess, whose grandfather Leon founded the multi-billion-dollar Hess Corporation.

Hess’ father John is now the CEO of the company.

It dos not seem that Hess will be joining the family business any time soon though, having worked at Goldman Sachs and the Royal Hashemite Court after graduating from Harvard and Harvard Business School, where he met best friend Josh Kushner. 

He is currently an associate at KKR & Co.

Nonoo and Hess first made their relationship public at the royal wedding last year, and a few months later joined Kushner and his then-fiancé Karlie Kloss for a trip down the Amalfi Coast on David Geffen’s yacht. 

Misha boasts a whole host of famous friends alongside Prince Harry and Meghan.  

In April of last year, she went to Jordan on holiday with an A-list group of celebrities, including Karlie Kloss and Ellie Goulding. 

Misha has also known Prince Harry for years, as her ex-husband Alexander Gilkes, is rumoured to be one of his friends from Eton.

Princess Eugenie, who is also a close friend of Misha’s, worked for Gilkes’ auction house, Paddle8 in New York from September 2013 until 2015. 

Princess Eugenie, alongside Prince Harry and Princess Beatrice, were all in attendance for the couple’s wedding in 2012, with the couple going on to have split in 2016. 

Princess Beatrice has already arrived in Italy ahead of the event, taking in the Amalfi Coast with boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this week.

The 31-year-old royal and the millionaire property developer, 35, looked ‘very much in love’ as they spent time together in the exclusive cliff side village of Positano, on the Amalfi Coast, on Sunday.

Misha and her future-husband have planned the wedding in just six months, after Mikey proposed on Valentine’s Day this year. 

In a photo posted on social media, he can be seen down on one knee proposing to his future bride on a boat during what appeared to be a romantic getaway to Cabo San Lucas.  

They’re set to marry at Cinecittà studios, a huge and opulent film set which is the biggest in Europe.

Hollywood blockbusters including Gangs of New York and the Passion of the Christ were filmed there.  

Just one of the features of the elaborate event space is an enormous replica of an ancient Roman square.  

Misha is also believed to have designed her own wedding dress for the big day, a process that she called ‘stressful’.

‘When you’re doing a couture piece, it’s extremely difficult,’ Misha told DailyMail.com. 

‘I think so much about my collection as pieces that are going to work on so many women. 

‘But when you think about one piece that’s going to be worn by one person for one night, you have endless options of what you can do and I find that quite hard, having no parameters whatsoever.’ 

‘It’s still very minimal but more traditional,’ she teased. 

‘Hopefully people like it! It’s not just [about] pleasing yourself.

‘When I get dressed every morning, I please myself. 

‘I encourage other women to do the same; to look good for themselves so they can go about their daily life.’

Speaking recently, Misha told how her friend hadn’t changed since marrying into the royal family.

‘From when I first met her, to a text that I would send yesterday or today, nothing has ever changed. Nothing,’ she said, in an interview with the New York Times.

‘From, you know, the handwritten thank-you letters that you receive, to never missing a birthday, an occasion, checking in. 

‘You may think because someone’s so busy that they’re not there, but that has never changed, how genuinely thoughtful she is.’ 

Indeed the two are so close that Misha is rumoured to have been in the running for the role of Archie’s godmother.   

A visit to Rome would mark the start of a whirlwind two weeks for the Duke of Duchess of Sussex, who are set to jet off on their first official royal tour as a family on September 23.  

Harry and Meghan are said to have travelled to Italy – on what is their ninth plane journey in just over six weeks – without baby Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

The pair are thought to be enjoying some downtime at the nuptials at Cinecittà film studios tomorrow before they begin their royal tour to South Africa on Monday.

Harry and Meghan were spotted arriving in Rome today, but Buckingham Palace refused to confirm whether they flew by a commercial or private jet.

Cinecittà studios are the biggest film studios in Europe, with blockbusters such as Gangs of New York and the Passion of Christ filmed there. 

The studios’ event space is described online as ‘scenographic’ and ‘mythical’, with a variety of rooms available to host a large event.

The permanent set of Ancient Rome offers an enormous event space, set up like a Roman Trastevere square and a large outdoor terrace with a 160 square meter Winter Garden are among the opulent rooms in the studio.

One of the indoor spaces features a huge swimming pool, which can be covered over to create a private  room with floor-to-ceiling screens.
