Looks like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Elton John[/lastfm] pulled a fast one on us all. After initially reporting that he and husband David Furnish didn’t receive an invitation to the royal event of the year, the rock icon has revealed he is in fact going to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.
Why did he keep the invitation to the biggest wedding of the year secret? See what he said in a recent interview!
Friend of the royal family, there has been much speculation whether or not Elton John would attend the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in April.
After first saying he did not receive an invitation to the royal affair, John has revealed in an interview with Canada’s CTV, he did receive an invitation.
So why deny it? John said he wanted to keep it under wraps. “We do have an invitation,” John told Canada’s CTV. “I’ve been trying to be discreet.”
He joins the list of celebrities like David and Victoria Beckham and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] who’ve reportedly received a golden invitation to the wedding. John also discussed the media frenzy circling the Prince and Princess to be, saying that Middleton has been handling the pressure well.
“She is very discreet, she is a very beautiful girl,” he said. “They have been together a long time, and I think she has handled the pressure so much.”
And as for Prince William? John thinks the young heir to the throne will make a great leader for the country saying, “I hope [William] becomes king at an early age. I think we need young people like him to lead. I think he will be a tremendous king — not that Charles won’t, but I think William will be … tremendous.”
