POP princess Ellie Goulding is to marry at York Minster on Saturday, it has emerged.

The singer-songwriter and Caspar Jopling will tie the knot at 3pm, with guests expected to include some of the biggest names in pop and members of the Royal family.

The singer is reported by national media to have invited stars including Ed Sheeran and Rita Ora, and also the Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, and Sarah, Duchess of York.

There has also been speculation that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been invited – Goulding sang at their wedding reception at Buckingham Palace after they got married in 2011.

The Love Me Like You Do singer was also a guest at Eugenie’s royal wedding in October 2018.

National media reported earlier this week that the couple’s reception and the wedding ceremony will both be held in the grounds of Castle Howard, where huge marquees and teepees have been seen.

The Minster’s website listings for services on Saturday states: “3.00 Marriage of Elena Goulding and Caspar Jopling.”

The cathedral will be closed to the public from 12.30 pm on Saturday.

Castle Howard’s website states: “Saturday 31st August 2019 - The House and Grounds will be closed for a private event. Sunday 1st September 2019 – The Walled Garden will be closed all day. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

A Minster spokeswoman declined to comment on the wedding, saying any such event was a private matter, and a Castle Howard spokeswoman was unavailable for comment.
