Singer Ellie Goulding has described the "incredible atmosphere" at the party at Buckingham Palace where she sang for guests of the Queen.

Herefordshire star Miss Goulding serenaded the newlyweds with her hit version of Your Song.

The song was written by Sir Elton John, a close friend of William's late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

The 24-year-old sang at a dinner party thrown after the royal wedding in front of 650 guests.

She said: "It was an amazing honour to be asked by Kate and William to perform at their party.

"The atmosphere was incredible and it is a night I will never forget."

Miss Goulding, from Kington, got her big break when she was tipped as the act to watch last year by industry experts in the BBC Sound of 2010 list.

Her debut album, Lights, went to straight to number one on its release.
