CHARLOTTE, N.C. (LaVendrick Smith | The Charlotte Observer) - A Charlotte music director will be a part of the Royal Wedding.

Cristopher Warren-Green, music director for the Charlotte Symphony, will conduct the orchestra at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding ceremony.

The ensemble will feature musicians from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia, according to a release from Kensington Palace.
