The legendary singer – who performed 'Candle in the Wind' at the funeral of Prince William's late mother, Princess Diana, who was a close friend of the star – joked that the only way he will be putting on a show at the nuptials of William and his fiancee Kate Middleton is if he is "busking" outside.

He said: "I probably will be playing there in the sense that I'll be outside busking."

However, it is unlikely the 'Sacrifice' hitmaker will have seen much coverage of the royal wedding – which is to be held on April 29 2011 – as he revealed he doesn't own a mobile phone, computer or iPod.

Sir Elton added to BBC Radio 2: " I don't have a iPod or a mobile phone or a computer. I do have a quarter of a million pairs of glasses but I don't even have a mobile phone! If people want to get hold of me they can.

"The internet doesn't interest me either apart from getting my sports scores. I have a computer in the Los Angeles office but literally all I check is the news and the sports scores.

"I feel my life is full enough already and there's enough going on. I prefer writing personal notes and writing things down. Being on a Blackberry all the time would drive me crazy."
