If you remember, singer Ellie Goulding was handpicked by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to perform at their wedding reception in April 2011, and she hasn’t really said much about the experience…until now! The songstress tells Marie Claire what Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding was really like, and how cool the royal family is! Says Ellie about getting the gig:
‘In the weeks before, everyone I know was talking about the wedding, and I was sat like [puts knuckles in her mouth], trying not to say anything,. I kept it to myself for so long – but no one would have believed me anyway.’
She also totally hung out with the royal couple!
“I talked to William and Kate quite a bit. They’re just a really awesome couple, lovely people, so I understand why people are fascinated by them. It was a really beautiful night – but then, I haven’t been to many weddings.’
I know you’re very pro-single life, Ellie, but don’t be shy: you can do a little more royal gushing!
