Royal snub? Elton John reveals he is STILL waiting for Royal Wedding invite
SIR Elton John revealed he has not yet received his invite to Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s wedding.
The singer and close friend of the prince’s late mother Princess Diana is said to have rearranged concerts for the May 19 nuptials.
“We haven’t had an invitation yet,” the legend told BBC2 radio on Thursday morning.
But in case he and husband David Furnish want to crash the wedding, the journey wouldn’t be too taxing.
“It’s rolling distance,” he said of his proximity to St George’s Chapel at London’s Windsor Castle where Harry, 33, and Ms Markle, 36, will tie the knot.
Elton was quizzed about the invites after it was revealed 600 had been sent out last week.
He allegedly cancelled his concerts in Las Vegas to make room for the big day.
On the chance of being asked, he previously admitted he would like an invite as he said: “It will be nice because I love him very dearly.”
John, who just celebrated his 71st birthday, attended the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William in 2011 and also performed his rewritten song Candle In The Wind (Goodbye England’s Rose) at Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997.

As for performing at Prince Harry’s big day, the I’m Still Standing singer joked that he’d be right on stage with royals of British music.
“And Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar,” he quipped.
“I mean the Spice Girls, no one’s going to beat them off the stage, are they? They’re just huge.”
Elton previously revealed he spent time with Harry last summer, as he said on Lorraine: “I spent some time with him in Sicily last summer.
“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”.”
The invitations have been sent to 600 people who will attend the service and lunchtime reception at St George’s Hall, which is being given by the Queen.
Around 200 guests will then attend a private celebration at Frogmore House hosted by Prince Charles.
Among the rumoured guests, apart from immediate family, are Serena Williams and Millie Macintosh as well as well as three of Harry’s former flames.
Cressida Bonas, Chelsy Davy and Ellie Goulding are all believed to be going to the big day.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte are likely to be page boy and bridesmaid too.
