It is confirmed Sir Elton John will be performing Prince Harry’ and Meghan Markle’s wedding on Saturday, though it’s still unknown whether John will be performing at the ceremony or at the evening’s private reception held among 200 guests. John, a longtime friend of the Royal Family, was particularly close to the prince’s late mother Princess Diana and has known her sons, Prince Harry and Prince William, their entire lives. John performed an updated version of “Candle in the Wind” in Diana’s honor at her funeral in 1997. Sir Elton is in the midst of his 300-date three year retirement tour, but speculation that he was playing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding grew when he canceled two Las Vegas dates for this weekend with the excuse “scheduling conflict” posted on his website.
