Elton John was not invited to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding! The wicked rejection comes after the music icon famously attended Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials, as well as sang at Lady Di’s funeral. h
“We haven’t had an invitation yet,” John, 71, told BBC Radio 2 this week.
“I live on a hill, so I could just roll down there,” John joked, adding that St. George’s Chapel — where Harry and Meghan will wed on May 19 — is “rolling distance.”
RadarOnline.com readers know the “I’m Still Standing” singer was a dear friend to the late Princess Diana.
“My heart sank when I saw those two boys walking behind the coffin,” Elton said after attending Kate and Will’s wedding in 2011 and recalling the last time he attended an event with the royals. “I thought that was the hardest thing, I can’t imagine at that young age having to walk in the public, following your mother’s coffin.”
