The royals can’t get enough of her.
Have the royal family ever loved anybody more than they love Ellie Goulding?
Ellie has been invited to do a surprise performance at Prince Harry’s 30th birthday party.
Oh, and by ‘invited’ we mean personally requested to perform by the actual Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
Apparently Kate has been planning the party for weeks and after it being postponed due to her suffering from acute morning sickness with her second pregnancy, it is finally due to take place tonight.
Where was our invite, Kate?
Speaking to the Sun a source revealed: “Kate knows that Harry is a big fan of Ellie and she wanted her to be a part of the evening.
“It is a high compliment for Ellie, especially because she is such a fan of Harry and the work that he does.
“She said yes straight away and has agreed to perform whatever Harry fancies on the night. It’s going to be a really intimate, acoustic set and Harry will love it.”
Of course Harry will love it – he has his own, personal, Ellie Goulding jukebox!
Ellie and the royal family go way back, with the 27-year-old being invited to perform at Kate and Prince William’s Wedding reception back in 2011, where she sang her own version of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’.
More recently she was personally requested by the youngest Prince to perform at the closing ceremony of the Invictus games, which Harry organised, over the weekend.
Ellie proved that she has a very close relationship with Harry when the pair were snapped getting cuddly backstage at the event, and we can imagine that she will be just as warmly welcomed tonight.
Although considering her performance was supposed to be the ‘big surprise’ of the night, let’s just hope that Harry hasn’t had it ruined by these pesky, spoil-sport sources spilling the news.
