Ellie Goulding kept royal wedding gig secret
Ellie Goulding has admitted she knew she would be performing at the wedding of Prince William and Princess Catherine months in advance but kept it a secret.
Ellie Goulding kept her royal wedding gig a secret from friends and family.
The ‘Starry Eyed’ hitmaker – who provided the entertainment at Prince William and Princess Catherine’s nuptials on April 29 – revealed she knew she would be performing at the royal wedding “months prior” to the big day, but was forced to keep the news under wraps.
She told Star magazine: “I met William at a festival about a year ago, and they asked me to perform months prior to the wedding.
“So I knew about it for a while, but couldn’t tell anybody!”
Ellie – who won the Critics’ Choice BRIT Award in 2010 – also explained while there was a “great atmosphere” at the post-wedding party, she was very “overwhelmed”.
She said: “It was an amazing honour to be asked by Kate and William. I never thought I’d feel that honoured. The atmosphere was incredible and it’s something I will never forget.
“I was nervous and overwhelmed. But it was just a fun night, a really great atmosphere. Afterwards, I didn’t believe that I’d actually done it.”
