He may have been close to the late Princess Diana, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Elton John will attend the most-talked-about wedding of the year.
"I think because of my relationship with Princess Diana, people automatically think I'm going to be invited," John told Reuters in an interview. Not that he’s bitter – the celebrated singer, who sang a rewritten version of his song "Candle in the Wind" at Princess Diana's funeral, recognizes he might not have a right to an invite.
"I don't really know the boys at all," John said. "I met the boys and had lunch with them when their mother was alive. I re-met them again when I did the concert for Diana a couple of years ago – the memorial concert… I don't know them (so) it would be presumptuous of me to even talk about them," John said.
Even if the singer – and new dad – has to watch the festivities on television (like the rest of us), he only has great things to say of Prince William and his bride Kate Middleton.
"They seem very happy,” John said of the royal couple. “He’s a really terrific man, William, and he's going to be a great king…[The princes] are great boys, their mum would be very proud of them."
