It appears as though Elton John knew Prince Harry was in love with Meghan Markle long before the rest of us did. The music icon recounted during the Lorraine show on Thursday the exact moment Prince Harry confessed his love for a certain lucky lady.

“I spent some time with him at Google camp in Sicily last summer and I could tell that he was totally in love,” he said on the show, according to HuffPost. “He didn’t really discuss much personally, but he said ‘I’m in love,’ and I thought, good for you.”

According to HuffPost, John has been a longtime friend of the royals. Although he said he hasn't yet been invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May, he said “it would be nice” to attend “because I love him dearly.”

“We’re working very closely on AIDS projects with him,” he said. “You know, both of those boys are very special to me because of their mother. He’s a good boy, his heart’s in the right place and all you want is for people to be happy.” As for whether he’d provide the wedding tunes, the singer said that he wasn’t sure because of scheduling.

This isn’t the first bit of Prince Harry–Meghan Markle trivia we learned this week. In November, the happy couple revealed that they had met on a blind date set up by a friend around a year and a half ago. Although at the time they said they were keeping the identity of the world’s best matchmaker a secret, this Wednesday she was revealed to be none other than Violet von Westenholz, a family friend of Prince Harry’s and a former coworker of Meghan Markle’s. “When Harry told Violet he was having trouble finding someone, Violet said she might just have the perfect girl for him,” a source told E! News. The rest, as they say, is history.
