There’s barely a day goes by without some new rumour surfacing regarding the Royal Wedding 2011 and the latest has been let slip by no less than Sir Elton John who, when asked if he would be performing for Prince William and Kate Middleton he answered that he probably would. Quickly trying to cover his announcement up he joked that he would be busking outside, but the joke has hardly covered anything up with magazines and newspapers running the story.
Sir Elton John performed a special one off version of the song Candle In The Wind to commemorate Princess Diana’s death and it seems fitting, for Prince William at least, that Sir Elton would perform at his wedding too.
It’s also been reported that Earl Spencer will give a special speech about Princess Di on the big day and that his daughter Lady Kitty Spencer may well be one of the bridesmaids at the royal wedding.
So far, it’s been confirmed that the most hotly anticipated wedding will take place on the 29th April in Westminster Abbey. There are many ties between the Abbey and the royal family and, let’s face it, if you’re given the option of having your big day there then most people would jump at the chance. It’s certainly a step up from Harringey Registry Office.
You can bet there will be plenty more rumours afoot from the media and from close family sources. Oh, and memorabilia is already being manufactured so you can get your special royal engagement cups now if you like.
