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'.

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.

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-fiance 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 decadent 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.

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.
