WINDSOR, England (AP) - Elton John has performed for guests at newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding reception.
The singer was among 600 people invited to Saturday's marriage ceremony at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. He sported a bold pair of pink spectacles as he arrived with husband David Furnish.
Kensington Palace says John "performed for the newly married couple in recognition of the close connection he has with Prince Harry and his family."
The palace did not disclose which songs the musician, who was made a knight in 1998 by Queen Elizabeth II in 1998, chose for the occasion.
John was a close friend of Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, and performed the song "Candle in the Wind" with recast lyrics at her funeral in 1997.
