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.

John has a close relationship with the royal family, especially with Princess Diana. According to TMZ, the 71-year-old star is booked to sing at the nuptials on Saturday after he cancelled two of his Las Vegas Shows. He also supported Prince Harry and Prince William after the death of the Princess. During an appearance on ITV's Lorraine, he said: "I spent some time with him in Sicily last summer and I could tell that he was totally in love, and he didn't really discuss much personally but he said, "I'm in love" and I thought, "Good for you". But she would be proud of her boys, and they're doing a great job.

Singer Ed Sheeran was also speculated to be performing at the wedding earlier this year but quickly shut down the rumours.

He said: "The Choristers, Lay Clerks, Organists and I are very much looking forward to this exciting day and are pleased to be performing at the service music chosen by the couple".

The couple will tie the knot on May 19 at 12 noon (7 a.m. EDT) at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

He said: "I'm so excited and honoured to perform at Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle's wedding". I'm playing in Vegas so I don't know what's going to happen.

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.
