According to TMZ, Elton John will be performing at the royal wedding.

The legendary singer was a close friend of Princess Diana and sun at her funeral in 1997, so it makes perfect sense and seems like a fitting way of keeping Harry’s mother’s memory alive.

Elton also did plenty of charity work with the late Princess, particularly raising money for AIDS research.

The website reports: “Elton had originally booked shows in Vegas for this weekend, but they were rescheduled months ago due to a “scheduling conflict” … guess now we know the conflict.”

Kensington Palace also recently revealed that the music for the ceremony will be directed by James Vivian, the music director for St. George’s Chapel, where Harry and Markle are set to wed.

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason has also been hand-picked by the couple to perform. The youngster won 2016’s BBC Young Musician and received a phone call from Meghan Markle herself regarding a performance at the wedding.

According to the royal website, he said: “I’m so excited and honoured to perform at Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle’s wedding. I was bowled over when Ms Markle called me to ask if I would play during the ceremony, and of course, I immediately said yes!”

The Christian gospel group, The Kingdom Choir, will also perform, and there will be a few surprise guests lined up, too.
