Sir Elton John has reportedly been confirmed to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding.
TMZ have reported that the 71-year-old will perform for the newlyweds on Saturday, but it’s not known whether he’ll play at the church ceremony or at the reception.
Elton’s performance will be particularly poignant, as he famously sang Candle In The Wind at Harry’s mother Princess Diana’s funeral back in 1997.
The singer was a close friend of Diana, and spoke about her death in an interview just last year.
He said, “She was very much loved. She was a controversial figure in some respects, but not to me. I loved her because she did so much for AIDS and she was a great friend to me.”
“We had a falling out, but we reconciled in the end. It was an extraordinary summer. Gianni Versace was murdered and then Diana rang me up and we reconciled,” he continued.
“And six weeks later, I’m in the same house, and she’s dead. It was extraordinary, and I just couldn’t believe what was going on.”
The news comes after Elton raised eyebrows by rescheduling concert dates in Las Vegas, which fell on the same date as the royal wedding.
