Who should be dress shopping for the British royal wedding? Speculation on Meghan Markle’s wedding guest list already includes some big names.

Irish golfer Rory McIlroy looks set to get a mention on the upcoming Meghan Markle royal wedding guest list, especially after helping her out with her ALS ice bucket challenge a few years back.

Markle and McIlroy have been friends since 2014. It was around that time that McIlroy  nominated Markle for the ice bucket challenge and then helped her to undertake challenge.
