Webber to pen love song for Royal wedding

London: Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has said that he would be ‘honoured’ to write an anthem for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

For the marriage of the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer, the Welsh composer William Mathias was asked to write a stirring anthem.

And for their son’s marriage, Andrew Loyd Webber is now waiting anxiously for a similar call from the Palace.

"I would be very honoured if they asked. Of course, it would be about solid love," the Telegraph quoted the composer as saying at a reception hosted by Cartier in Mayfair.

However, Sir Tim Rice, with whom Lord Lloyd-Webber wrote such hit West End musicals as Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar, does not believe that he will be called upon to write any lyrics,

"I expect they will want to keep it traditional. I wouldn’t like to give them any advice one way or another," Rice said.
