The musician, who was named the BBC’s Young Musician of the Year in 2016 and previously performed at a charity event for Prince Harry last year, opened up about being called for the big day.

“I was just very relaxed, and just soaking up the atmosphere. To have the opportunity to perform for so many people, I was just really excited,” he told People, and revealed that Meghan herself called him to book him for the gig.

“I said yes immediately. It’s such an amazing event to have the opportunity to perform at. It was a surprise and such an honor.”

“I’m definitely not used to playing at the royal weddings with famous faces watching. That was something that was just such an honor — to get to perform for these people,” he added.

Sheku played three songs: “Sicilienne,” “Après un rêve,” and “Ave Maria.” The first two were his own picks, while the last was at the royal couple’s request.

“They’re so lovely. I’m just so glad to have been a part of their special day.”

Nicki Minaj Stars in 'SNL' Parody of Haim 'Friendship Song' - Watch Now!

Saturday Night Live cut a skit for time during its broadcast on Saturday night (May 19) – but luckily we still get to see it!

The skit featured evening’s host Tina Fey, Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon, with a special guest appearance by the episode’s performer, Nicki Minaj.

The funny bit parodied a Haim-style song about friendship and tearing other people down, poking fun at the sister act’s signature moves and riffs. And Nicki supplied a hot verse, too!

HAIM responded to the song on Twitter: “CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS REAL,” they wrote.

Watch the “Friendship Song” skit below!
