Sources close to the music icon tell TMZ that he will get behind his piano and belt out a few numbers in honor of the royal couple — though it’s unclear whether he’ll take the stage during the church ceremony or at the reception.
Elton is a fitting choice for performing, given his history with Harry and his late mother Princess Diana. As you may know, Elton and Diana were close friends who worked together to raise money for AIDS research and awareness.
The two had a falling out in the late ‘90s, but reconciled weeks before Diana’s tragic death in 1997. Elton then famously performed Candle in the Wind as a tribute to the royal at her funeral.
The 71-year-old first sparked rumors of performing at Harry and Meghan’s wedding months ago, when he rescheduled his Las Vegas shows on the weekend of May 18 and 19 due to a mysterious “scheduling conflict.”
While he’s there, maybe Elton can also be the one who walks Meghan down the aisle??
