Among the Sirs, Ladies, Dukes, Kings, Queens and Prime Ministers invited to Westminster Abbey on Friday for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, are the names of a handful of stars, including Joss Stone and director Guy Ritchie, as well as previously reported invited guests Elton John and Victoria and David Beckham.

"Guy Ritchie is a friend of Prince William and Miss Middleton," reads a description beneath the director's name on the official guest list. William has been spotted with Ritchie at the director's popular London pub, Punch Bowl. Stone, described as an "English Soul singer and songwriter," performed at Princess Diana's memorial concert in 2007.

Also on the list: Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson, a friend of Prince Charles's, Australian Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe, official royal engagement portrait photographer Mario Testino, members of the British Royal Family as well as foreign royals such as the King of Swaziland, the King of Tonga, Prince Constantine of Greece, The Queen of Spain and Sheikh Ahmad Hmoud Al-Sabah of Kuwait.



As for the seating chart, which was also released, Middleton's immediate family and friends have been placed in the "north lantern" of the Abbey, sharing the aisle with the British Royal Family. The Spencer family and foreign royals are directly behind, and off to the sides in will be Prince William's friends and diplomats.
