Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have arrived in Italy to attend the wedding of her BFF Misha Nonoo and energy entrepreneur Mikey Hess.

The New York Post reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be guests at the nuptials in Rome tomorrow — just three days before embarking on their much-anticipated tour of South Africa.

The royal couple has attracted criticism for using private jets for travel recently while advocating to cut emissions. Prince Harry defended the use of a private jet for recent trips, saying he spends “99 per cent of my life travelling the world by commercial.”

This time, The Sun reports, they took a commercial flight.

“They did fly commerical as Meghan was a bit stung by the criticism over her and Harry’s use of private jets,” a source said.

Prince Harry and Meghan reportedly left baby Archie at home as they jetted to Italy for the wedding.

Designer Misha Nonoo — who has made her own gown — and oil tycoon boyfriend Michael Hess will be celebrated by guests including supermodel Karlie Kloss and her hubby, Joshua Kushner — who is great friends with Hess.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are expected, as well as Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, and newlyweds singer Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling.

“There is no way that Meghan wouldn’t be at Misha’s wedding — no way at all,” a source said.

Singer Katy Perry and her fiance actor, Orlando Bloom, are also expected.

Hola! reported there will be a bash at Cinecittà, the legendary film studio where incredible directors such as Rossellini, Fellini, De Sica and Visconti filmed.

It’s Nonoo’s second wedding in Italy — she got married in Venice the first time around in 2012 to Alexander Gilkes, who’s now dating Maria Sharapova.

Nonoo just teamed up with Meghan on a capsule clothing line for charity.

She designed the popular white blouse that is part of Meghan’s limited-edition Smart Set capsule collection that benefits Smart Works, a charity that helps unemployed women find professional clothing for job interviews.

After attending the London launch for the collection, Nonoo spoke out about criticism the Sussexes have faced, saying: “I think it’s unjust, and I think that people should really focus on the good work they do. A good example of that is [that] this is her first official engagement after having had her baby, (and) it’s all about empowering women, all about what she has essentially always sought to do.”

“When she goes to Africa with Prince Harry and their new little one, she is going to do some events there on empowering women,” Nonoo said. “She’s really interested in empowering women around the world.”

Nonoo is widely believed to have been the person who set up her longtime friend Meghan with her other friend Prince Harry on a blind date.
