According to The Sun‘s Bizarre column, the chart topper is keen to extend invites to the Royal sisters as well as their mother Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. 

The publication reports that Prince Harry, who was romantically linked to the singer at the Audi Polo Challenge in May 2016, will unlikely be invited.

Ellie has been good friends with Princess Eugenie for years, with the pair attending a string of nights out together and holidaying in Jordan in 2017.

Ellie and Caspar are said to have joined forces with Princess Eugenie and Jack on a number of double dates.

The Starry Eyed singer and her beau attended Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October last year. 

It’s said that Prince William and Kate Middleton will receive an invite to the nuptials, after Ellie performed at their wedding in 2011.  Celebrity friends Ed Sheeran and Rita Ora are also set to attend.

The publication further reports that Ellie and Caspar will exchange vows at a chapel in York, with the reception becoming held at the stately home Castle Howard.

The blonde beauty is reportedly pulling out all the stops for her big day, splashing out £20,000 on flowers alone while Bollinger champagne will be served.

There will reportedly be ‘designer vegan’ food for guests to chow down on, while they’ll be entertained by a DJ playing 90’s hits including The Spice Girls. 

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Ellie for comment.  

Meanwhile, Ellie joked that she’ll be singing at her own wedding and teased that she’ll ‘sing herself down the aisle.’

In an interview with 2DayFM’s Breakfast with Grant, Ed & Ash in May, the star said she saw a video of a woman singing as she walked herself down the aisle to get married and it gave the Love Me Like You Do singer the inspiration she needed for her own wedding.

‘I turned to my fiancé and said, “Get ready,” and he said, “You’re kidding.” So I’m going to sing myself down the aisle,’ she laughed.

Ellie announced her engagement to the British art dealer via a formal announcement in The Times last year.

It read: ‘Mr C.W.F. Jopling and Miss E.J. Goulding. The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands.’

The couple has been dating since April 2017, after reportedly being introduced through mutual friends.

And during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show in May, Ellie revealed Caspar had apparently taken himself by surprise with his proposal.

‘I think he proposed a bit sooner than he thought he was going to. I think he got a bit overexcited and proposed the week before he was planning,’ she told the TV show.

‘We were having maybe a couple of drinks and we were doing a jigsaw puzzle. He likes them. I think it was quite an easy one. Probably 400 [pieces].

‘Anyway, I think he was getting bored of it and then he proposed. It was quite romantic for some reason.’
