He previously opened up about the honor of performing at the ceremony, admitting on an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, that the royal couple are "good friends and I wanted to make sure they had a good time, so there was a lot of pressure".

He added that it was the "most stressful" gig he's done, explaining: "This wasn’t like my cousin’s wedding. This was like, you know, this wasn’t at the community hall, the reception. This was a big deal."

Elton John also provided entertainment at the wedding reception with an impromptu sing-along. "It was very, very wonderful to be there.

"To have a black gospel choir, a multiracial bride, a black cellist, who was wonderful, a preacher —it felt like a party, and it felt like progress had been made. Thank god, thank god," he told CNN.

Elton's husband, David Furnish also had a lovely time at the wedding: "What was so inspiring, and it sounds corny, but, true love is what really shone through and that's what everybody felt, the sincerity and the integrity of that true love on the day."
