Everyone is aware of the strong relationship that existed between Elton John and Princess Diana. In point of fact, they were inseparable companions.
Her passing had a profound impact on Elton, so much so that he dedicated the song “Candle in the Wind” to her memory when she passed away. Elton was aware that Diana was divisive among a number of people, but he saw her as a genuine friend.
She was considered a problematic character in certain circles, but not by him. Elton thought back on it. “She was a wonderful friend to me, and I adored her because she was so dedicated to the fight against AIDS.
We had a disagreement, but in the end we were able to put it behind us and go on. That summer was one for the record books. After the loss of Gianni Versace [on July 15, 1997], Diana called me, and throughout our conversation, we made amends, and here I am, in the same home, six weeks later, and she has passed away.”
Since the passing of Princess Diana, Elton has made it his personal mission to assist in the defense of both Prince William and Prince Harry. He has a genuine concern for his friend’s children and is in regular contact with both of the young men.
John recounted seeing the youngest Windsor kid and realizing that Meghan Markle was the one for him even before Harry and Meghan Markle were engaged. “Well, I spent some time with him in Sicily last summer, and I could tell that he was fully in love,” Elton said.
Now, the legendary musician is speaking out in response to the public criticism that Harry and Meghan have received for using a private aircraft to France, despite the fact that both of them are advocates for the preservation of the natural environment.
Elton acknowledged that he was the one who sent the private plane, and the primary reason he did so was mostly because of the terrible that occurred to Diana.
The first thing he said was, “I am profoundly upset by today’s erroneous and vicious narrative in the press surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s private visit at my house in Nice last week,” and he continued by saying, “Diana, Princess of Wales, Prince Harry’s mother, was one of my closest friends.
I have a great feeling of responsibility to shield Harry and his family from the unwanted attention of the press, which I believe had a role in the premature passing of Diana.”
“After a hectic year of continuing their hard work and dedication to charity, David and I wanted the young family to have a private holiday inside the safety and tranquility of our home. We gave them with a trip on a private plane so that they could retain a high degree of security, which was very much required.
We made sure that their flight was carbon neutral by making the right donation to Carbon FootprintTM in order to show our support for Prince Harry’s efforts to improve the state of the environment.
I have the utmost regard and admiration for Harry and Meghan’s dedication to charitable work, and I admire their efforts. However, I am calling on the media to stop their constant and inaccurate character assassination on them, which is spuriously manufactured virtually every day.”
The fact that Elton is willing to discuss this issue publicly indicates that he must really care about how things turn out for them.
