Ellie Goulding is getting "Starry Eyed" when it comes to her role in Prince William and Kate Middleton's April 2011 royal wedding. The British singer had to keep her reception performance a secret in the months leading up to the highly-anticipated day. 

"In the weeks before, everyone I know was talking about the wedding, and I was sat like [puts knuckles in her mouth], trying not to say anything,’ Goulding said in the new issue of Marie Claire UK. ‘I kept it to myself for so long – but no one would have believed me anyway."

Goulding, 27, said that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spoke with her "quite a bit" throughout the night.

"They're just a really awesome couple, lovely people, so I understand why people are fascinated by them," she continued. "It was a really beautiful night — but then, I haven't been to many weddings." 

The "Burn" singer is currently single. "I quite like being by myself. What’s wrong with that?" she asked.

But she did admit that a wedding isn't out of the question in her future. 

"Well, it might be nice to have a wedding one day, mightn’t it?" she mused.
