Elton John to Attend Prince William's Wedding
Though he initially denied he had been invited, the 'Candle in the Wind' singer recently confirms he will attend the royal nuptials and explains, 'I've been trying to be discreet.'
will attend the royal wedding of Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton. The music legend, who played his song "Candle in the Wind" at the funeral of William's mother, Princess Diana, in 1997, initially denied he and partner David Furnish had been invited, but he has now confirmed he will be going to the nuptials on April 29 with his husband David Furnish.

"As far as I know, I don't have an invitation," he said when asked by Canadian TV host Marilyn Denis if he would be attending. However, when she continued her questioning, he added, "I've been trying to be discreet. Yeah, we got an invitation."

Elton recently welcomed his first son Zachary with Canadian partner David into the world on Christmas Day last year, December 25, 2010, and he hopes to take the tot, who was born via a surrogate mother, with him when he travels from country to country.

"He's got an American passport and a British passport," he said. "We gotta get him a Canadian one too. He's a great traveler. I'm gonna take him with us. I take my dogs and he's less trouble than the dogs. I'm not gonna leave him behind."

The 64-year-old musician also revealed eccentric pop star is on a list of candidates to be Zachary's godmother. He said, "We haven't really announced it. There is a possibility. We have a list of candidates we'd like to ask and she is one of them."
