Singer was supposedly asked about playing for Wills and Kate

Adele was supposedly asked if she could sing at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding reception.

According to The Sun the unit-shifting London singer was “sounded out” by the happy couple about providing entertainment for their esteemed guests yesterday (April 29). The pair reportedly went with Ellie Goulding instead – and anyway, Adele was hosting her own barbeque so wouldn’t have been able to make the date.

The newspaper didn’t reveal how they knew that the royal duo had made the request, as no source was quoted. However, Adele said: “I couldn’t play because my barbecue has been booked for some time.”

She did, however, reveal that she had some kind of exposure to Prince William at least – supposedly watching him have a game of football near her home in the UK capital before the ceremony. “I saw William playing footie in the park opposite my house last night and this morning,” she claimed on the big day. “It was amazing.”
