Elton John To Attend Royal Wedding
According to a story by Joe Gracely at nydailynews.com, the music icon confirmed to Canada's CTV that he and partner David Furnish will be there to see Prince William and fiancée Kate Middleton say 'I do.'
"We do have an invitation," John said, according to People.com. "I've been trying to be discreet."
And while the singer previously told the press he didn't expect to be invited to the wedding because his relationship with the two princes, William and his younger brother Harry, was never as strong as his dear friendship with their late mother Princess Diana, John had only kind words for the future groom and his bride-to-be.
Middelton, 29, "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 said.
John added that he hopes Prince William, 28, "becomes king at an early age."
"I think we need young people like him to lead," the "Candle in the Wind" songwriter declared. "I think he will be a tremendous king - not that Charles won't, but I think William will be... tremendous."
The rest of the invitations are reportedly earmarked for family friends, foreign royals, diplomats and other special guests.
