The singer has been close with the Royal family for several years and was thrilled to have received an invitation! While he was great friends with Princess Diana, he was stunned to have been invited to the Prince Harry’s wedding.
Elton performed during the wedding luncheon hosted by the Queen. During his performances of “Tiny Dancer,” “Your Song,” and “Circle of Life,” the room couldn’t help but remember the late princess’ absence.
Elton John has finally shared his thoughts of the young prince and his words are shaking the world with their enormous and obvious truth. Sir Elton shared that newly married prince has “great morals and wants to change the landscape of the Commonwealth.”
He went on further to share that the Harry inherited one very special gift from his mother. In a BBC Newsnight interview, Sir Elton shared that: "Harry has inherited his mother’s ability to walk into a room and make people, of any caste or any status in life, feel equal...That is an incredible gift. I’ve been around for 71 years and Princesses Diana was one of the few people in my life who could do that.”
Seeing Prince Harry marry the love of his life undeniably reminded the world of Harry’s loving and pure heart. Sir Elton continued by saying, "Harry has inherited that gift from his mother. He knows he has that gift.”
Don’t you agree? Each time we see Prince Harry and Meghan, we’re reminded of Princess Diana and her unconditional love and respect for people. We can’t wait to watch the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex make their make mark on the world!
