London: Kate Middleton and Prince William have reportedly asked singer Beyonce Knowles and her hubby Jay-Z to perform "Crazy In Love" at their wedding reception.

"Both William and Kate are massive fans of Beyonce and Jay-Z. They really wanted to make their big day even more special and what better way than by getting pop royalty to perform at the party?" a source close the Royals said.

According to, the Palace refused to confirm or deny whether the US hit-makers have accepted the invitation but rumours are rife that singer and her husband would be calling into Buckingham Palace to shake their thang for Queen Lizzy.

The snitch added: "Will and Kate will have an official reception for hundreds of dignitaries before throwing a less formal bash for loved-ones. They both wanted to ditch traditions and make it more personal for them. Jay-Z and Beyonce are both in Europe at the moment while she promotes her new single Girls Who Run The World. So it`s highly likely they have taken up the Royals` offer. After all, who would turn down a once-in-a- lifetime gig like that?"
