Elton John has had his say on the Royal Wedding after attending Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials in London this morning (April 29).

The Rocket Man attended the ceremony at Westminster Abbey with his partner David Furnish as the happy couple tied the knot in front of 1,900 guests.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5Live on his way out of the venue, John said: "It's not the Oscars."



The singer was among a small number of invited guests from the world of music and entertainment, including The Spice Girls' Victoria Beckham - who attended with husband David - and Joss Stone.

Actor Rowan Atkinson, film director Guy Ritchie and TV presenter Ben Fogle also turned up alongside selected royals, politicians and dignitaries.

Ellie Goulding is rumoured to be performing Elton John's hit 'Your Song' at the couple's wedding reception later today.

William and Kate are thought to be "huge fans" of the 'Starry Eyed' singer.
