The 71-year-old, who was a personal friend of Harry's late mum Princess Diana and performed Candle in the Wind at her funeral in 1997, confessed during an interview with The Sun earlier this year that he was hoping to be there for the groom's wedding day because, "I love him very dearly". Elton's Vegas shows were rescheduled months ago due to a "scheduling conflict".

Elton's been tight with the Royal Family for years ... he was an extremely close friend of Princess Diana. "I know they are so happy".

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.

During his appearance on "Lorraine", John continued, "It was an extraordinary and mesmerizing summer, and I just couldn't believe what was going on". I loved her because she did so much for Aids and she was a great friend to me. "She would be proud of her boys". He also offered tremendous support to Prince William and Prince Harry when Princess Diana died. And I am proud of them.
