Sir Elton John to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Princess Diana

The 71-year-old singer is set to take to his piano to serenade the royal couple - who will tie the knot on Saturday (19.05.18) - almost 21 years after he played "Candle in the Wind" at the funeral of Harry's mother Princess Diana.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle certainly will, with a guest list that reads like a who's who of the worldwide A-list.

While it won't come as surprise to many, Elton John has been confirmed to take to the mic at the royal wedding for what is sure to be a special performance.

According to TMZ, the legendary 71-year-old singer will take the stage at Windsor Castle this Saturday, although it's unclear whether he will entertain guests at the church ceremony or at the subsequent reception.

The 71-year-old chart-topper - a close friend of the royals - has previously said he would love to attend Harry's wedding, but was waiting for the invites to be sent.

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. He also supported Prince Harry and Prince William after the death of the Princess.

During his appearance on "Lorraine", John continued, "It was an extraordinary and mesmerizing summer, and I just couldn't believe what was going on".

Despite initial claims that he has not received an invitation to the nuptials, TMZ reported that John will indeed play at least one song at the May 19 event.
