Who better to soundtrack the royal wedding than Sir Elton John himself? Despite having previously fretted about his missing invitation, the famous singer/songwriter is now booked to perform in Windsor on May 19, TMZ reported Thursday, according to unnamed sources.
The outlet reported that it's not clear whether he'll be performing at the chapel or during one (or both) of the receptions later that night. Our money's on the latter, though: In April, Kensington Palace announced the complete line-up of musicians who will be playing during the ceremony at St. George's Chapel, and while they're all extremely talented, none of them are Elton John. (Although, who knows? Maybe he'll make a surprise appearance at the organ.)
Kensington Palace has yet to comment on the presence of Sir Elton John at the nuptials on Saturday, but it would not be surprising if he showed up. In February, the famed musician canceled two Las Vegas concerts scheduled for May 18 and May 19 (hint hint), and he's been a longtime friend of the royal family. John did, after all, perform at Princess Diana's funeral, and he made the guest list for Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding, back in 2011.
There's no word on the other pop stars who are rumored to be playing at the royal wedding. Although all five Spice Girls received an invite, there are conflicting rumors about whether they'll perform. (TMZ reported last week that there will not be a Spice Girls reunion on Saturday.) But Harry and Meghan may be getting serenaded by some other British singers. News reports of the royal wedding after-party include rumored appearances by Coldplay and/or Ed Sheeran.
