Elton & David Invite Kate & William to Private Dinner
ELTON John is planning to host the ultimate Come Dine With Me event to celebrate the royal wedding – with Kate and Wills as guests of honour.
The star-studded guest list for the dinner party, three weeks before the big day, also includes David and Victoria Beckham.
And as in the popular TV show, the visitors may even get to look around Elton and David Furnish’s stunning home next to Windsor Castle while the feast is being prepared.
The soirée, at the beginning of April, will allow Kate and Wills to meet Elton and David’s baby son Zachary for the first time. Elton, who was close to William’s mum Diana, revealed last month he had received a coveted invite to Westminster Abbey on April 29. He said: “I’ve been trying to be discreet, yeah, we do have an invitation.”
A source said: “Elton loves entertaining and hosting people at his home.
“He is touring America at the moment but flits between there and the UK, and comes to his Old Windsor home whenever a short break in his schedule allows.
“He has wanted to invite Kate and William for dinner for a while now to thank them for his wedding invitation. He always puts on the most incredible feasts fit for royalty anyway, so they should feel right at home.
“The Beckhams will be invited, but it depends on whether his club let him travel.”
A spokesman for Kate and Wills said yesterday: “Anything of this nature would be a private matter.” Elton’s Old Windsor home backs on to the 5,000 acre deer park in the grounds of Windsor Castle where Prince Andrew lives.
Elton, who turned 64 yesterday, and David host many lavish parties at the house, including the annual glitzy White Tie and Tiara Ball held to raise money for Elton’s Aids foundation.
Along with the Beckhams, he is one of only a few celebs invited to the wedding.
Elton is also one of the only famous people close to the couple who usually prefer to socialise with their old friends.
Let’s hope they all remain pals after the guests give their scores and comments on the night during the taxi ride home.
