Ellie Goulding Praises Prince William and Kate MiddletonBy: Chad Sweely - January 3, 2014
It has been quite a while since the Royal Couple has been in the spotlight, especially since their new-born son George has been baptized; however, in a recent interview with Ellie Goulding, the Royal Couple has been praised highly.
Ellie Goulding, the 27-year-old UK singer and songwriter, known for her top hit songs “Lights” and “Anything Could Happen,” recently told Marie Claire Magazine what it was like participating in Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding. Goulding performed a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” at the reception of the Royal Couple’s wedding.
Goulding told Marie Claire that she knew about her role in the wedding far in advance, but did not tell anyone. Goulding’s reaction was:
“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.”
Goulding also discussed the Royal Couple as well as the wedding itself, stating “They’re just a really awesome couple, lovely people, so I understand why people are fascinated by them.” During the Royal Couple’s wedding, Goulding was able to interact with the couple and stated that she spoke with the Duchess of Cambridge “quite a bit” throughout the reception.
Marie Claire also recently published Nine Moments That Put Ellie Goulding On The Map. One of the moments included within the Marie Claire article was her involvement with Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. Other moments include: the John Lewis advert, her roller-coaster love life, performing at “Chime For Change,” and her “Children In Need” single.
Goulding concluded her remarks about the Royal Couple’s wedding by stating “It was a really beautiful night — but then, I haven’t been to many weddings.”
