Elton John will be attending royal wedding after all

Wednesday March 2, 2011

Earlier this year, Elton John insisted he was not expecting an invite to the wedding of the decade.

But the singer has told Canada's CTV that he will in fact be present to witness the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"We do have an invitation. I've been trying to be discreet," he said.

New dad Elton also shared his thoughts on the bride-to-be and even likened her to Princess Diana, with whom he had a very close friendship.

"Kate is Diana in personality. She is very discreet, she is a very beautiful girl.

"They have been together a long time and I think she has handled the pressure so much."

He joins a selection of royals and lucky others on the exclusive list of invitees.
