Elton John hasn’t received his royal wedding invite: Singer reveals he is yet to hear from couple

Sir Elton John has revealed he is yet to receive his invite to Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s wedding, despite reportedly rearranging concerts for the May 19 nuptials.

The singer and close friend of the Prince’s late mother Princess Diana, spoke on BBC2 Radio on Thursday morning, where he announced the news – a shock no doubt after attending Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge’s 2011 wedding. 

The 71-year-old I’m Still Standing hitmaker also batted away suggestions he would perform on the day, before professing he lives so close to the location, St. George’s Chapel at London’s Windsor Castle, that he could ‘roll to the event’.

Elton was quizzed about the invites after it was revealed they had been sent out last week yet he confirmed he was yet to receive his invite despite cancelling his concerts in Las Vegas to allegedly make room for the big day.

On the chance of being asked, he previously admitted he would like an invite as he said: ‘It will be nice because I love him very dearly.’

When Elton, who penned his song Candle In The Wind for Diana, if he would be performing at the ceremony, he joked: ‘(Yes) and Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.’

He also made reference to Mel B’s announcement last month that the Spice Girls would be taking the stage, as he said: ‘I mean the Spice Girls, no one’s going to beat them off the stage, are they? They’re just huge.’

Speaking out: Last month, when asked about the big day, she said: 'I don't know. I haven't even been – no one's been asked. I'm playing in Vegas so I don't know what's going to happen. It will be nice because I love him very dearly'

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Elton for comment. 

Elton previously revealed he spent time with Harry last summer, as he said on Lorraine: ‘I spent some time with him in Sicily last summer.

‘I could tell that he was totally in love, and he didn’t really discuss much personally but he said: “I’m in love” and I thought: “Good for you”.’

Speaking last year about Princess Diana’s death, 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. 

‘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.’
