In a time where it is easy to let the cat out of the bag via social media, U.K. singer Ellie Goulding is the exception. There were no Facebook status updates or tweets that even hinted at the big news of her being invited to perform at Prince William and Kate Middelton’s royal wedding back on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey.

As the only artist invited to attend the event as well as perform, its clear that this pink-haired Brit can keep a secret.

Way before the royal engagement was announced to the public, Ellie received a personal invitation to perform at the couple’s reception party in Buckingham Palace. William and Kate are big fans of the singer’s debut album, Lights and couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

“I didn’t want to scream and shout about it. I just got a phone call at one point – they had already met me at festival and they’re just really big fans and they wanted an artist, that they like presumably, to play at their wedding reception,” Ellie said.

One of the more popular songs Ellie sang was her version of “Your Song,” which was written by Sir Elton John, a close friend of the royal family. Out of respect for all those involved, she kept all of the pre-wedding performance plans to herself.

“I didn’t tell anyone for a long time. But I’m not one of those people who would blurt it out anyway. I was very respectful. Even though it was a very big/huge publicized wedding it’s also just a wedding of two really cool people,” said Ellie.

Ellie is definitely BBFL material. Even to this day, she doesn’t like to give away any insider royal wedding info.
