Ellie Goulding was one of the few lucky civilians who were invited to attend the wedding of Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge two years ago, and the 'Burn' singer has revealed all the details on the special night, describing it as “beautiful” and also admitting that she struggled to keep her performance at the reception a secret.
The 27-year-old entertained the royal couple's guests at their 2011 nuptials with a rendition of 'Your Song,' a cover of Elton John's classic ballad after being specifically chosen by Kate and William who are both fans of her music. Having received an invitation to the wedding of the century, it's hardly surprising that Ellie admits she found it difficult to keep the news a secret from her nearest and dearest.

“In the weeks before, everyone I know was talking about the wedding, and I was... trying not to say anything,” Ellie told Marie Claire UK.
“I kept it to myself for so long - but no one would have believed me anyway.”
Gushing over her admiration for the royal couple, Ellie went on to explain why she thinks they've become the most adorned couple around the world.
“I talked to William and Kate quite a bit. They're just a really awesome couple, lovely people, so I understand why people are fascinated by them... It was a really beautiful night - but then, I haven’t been to many weddings ,” Ellie said.
Meanwhile, the 'Anything Can Happen' singer has admitted that while she may be portrayed as a preened pop star in the media, she has certainly had her fair share of naughty moments in the past.

"People might think I am but I'm not," she claimed when asked if she was innocent in the same interview.
"I've been quite clever about what gets in the press but I've done some stupid things, some reckless things. A few too many drinks have caused a lot of things to happen.”
