Elton John is invited to the upcoming royal wedding, and has opened up on what he thinks of both bride and groom. Elton says that he admires Kate because she has gone through so much, and will continue to place herself in the spotlight for the man she loves:

“I hope everyone celebrates for them, whether they agree with the monarchy or not. It’s about two people falling in love and getting into a situation, for her especially, where it’s going to be the most difficult life. I mean, let’s face it, we know what that kind of marriage entails, and the press never leave you alone, the courtiers … I admire her for going through with it.”

Elton says that although he has only met both Princes twice, he is still excited to be invited and believes Diana would be proud:

“I’ve only met William and Harry twice . but I’m very glad to be invited because I think it’s going to be a very joyous day and I think [Diana] would be very happy with his choice, [Kate] seems such a great girl and they seem so much in love.”

Speaking on William, Elton opens up on seeing both Princes on the day of Diana’s funeral and how hard it must have been for Harry and William:

“My heart sank when I saw those two boys walking behind the coffin. I thought that was the hardest thing, I can’t imagine at that young age having to walk in the public, following your mother’s coffin. And the next time we’re in the Abbey it’s to see him walking up the aisle with a beautiful woman, the love of his life, I think it’s the most joyous result and I’m sure Diana would be very, very happy about it.”
