Take That pop-star Robbie Williams quipped he hopes singing for the Queen at the Diamond Jubilee bags him a knighthood.

Williams, 38, will join Stevie Wonder, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and JLS on the bill at Buckingham Palace, on June 4.

Take That band-mate Gary Barlow invited Williams onto the bill in his role of organiser.

“If this doesn’t get me a knighthood, nothing will,” joked Williams on his website. “I can’t wait for the show.

“The Diamond Jubilee concert will celebrate the 60 years of The Queen’s reign with an amazing line-up of world-class artists coming together to play at one of the biggest and most exciting live music shows in recent years.

“With Buckingham Palace as a backdrop, it’s going to be a fantastic event which transcends multiple decades of music.

“It’ll be a great, unique, experience for the thousands attending, watching on TV and listening on Radio. I can’t wait!”
