Sir Elton John has reportedly been confirmed to perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal nuptials on Saturday. 

According to TMZ, the 71-year-old is said to be entertaining guests at Windsor Castle – however, it is unclear whether he’ll play at the church ceremony or at the reception later on in the day.

The news comes 21 years after he performed his single Candle in the Wind at Harry’s mother Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997 after she passed away in a car accident.

Elton was no doubt trying to through royal fans off the scent, considering his attendance at Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge‘s 2011 wedding.   

On the chance of being asked to perform, he previously conceded: ‘It will be nice because I love him very dearly.’
