Elton will be at royal nuptials

Sir Elton John has received an invite to the royal wedding

Sir Elton John has confirmed that he is on the guestlist for the biggest event of the year - Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding.

The singer told Canadian TV that he and his long-term partner David Furnish had received an invite.

When interviewed on CTV's Marilyn Denis Show on Tuesday, the singer told the host "As far as I know, I don't have an invitation", but when pressed he admitted: "Yeah, we do have an invitation".

The star added: "I've been trying to be discreet, yeah, we got an invitation."

Asked if he would be joining the other guests at Westminster Abbey on April 29, he replied: "Yeah, I think we will."

Sir Elton previously said he was not expecting an invite to the wedding despite being a close friend of William's mother Diana, Princess of Wales.

On the 10th anniversary of Diana's death in 2007, the singer opened and closed a Wembley Stadium concert organised by William and his brother Prince Harry in memory of their mother.

But the musician revealed recently that he did not really know the princes.

Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
