Elton John has revealed he does not think he will be invited to the Royal Wedding, despite his close connection to Prince William's late mother, Princess Diana.

"I don't really know the boys at all," the singer said.

"They're tremendous boys, but I don't know them, it would be presumptuous of me to even talk about them. They are great boys, their mum would be very proud of them, but I don't know them so I'm not invited to the wedding, I would not expect to be invited to the wedding."

The 63-year-old new dad was widely tipped to be asked to perform when Prince William marries Kate Middleton on April 29.

Speaking as he promotes the film he produced with his husband David Furnish, Elton added: "I just wish them the happiest of lives together, they seem very happy. He's a really terrific man, William, and he's going to be a great king. And that's all I can say.

"Because of my relationship with Princess Diana, the people automatically think I'm going to be invited, but these boys are their own people, they have their own friends, and I just hope that they have the best day and it's sunny and it's a great occasion for them."

Elton and David's new film, Gnomeo and Juliet, is released in the UK on Friday 11 February.
