Elton John ‘deeply distressed’ as he defends Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Elton John, 72, shared a series of messages on his Twitter account where he said he was “deeply distressed” about how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s stay at his home in the South of France had been reported.

The legendary musician revealed he had invited the royal couple to stay at his property in Nice amid their “hectic year”.

He began: “I am deeply distressed by today’s distorted and malicious account in the press surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s private stay at my home in Nice last week.

“Prince Harry’s Mother, Diana Princess Of Wales was one of my dearest friends. I feel a profound sense of obligation to protect Harry and his family from the unnecessary press intrusion that contributed to Diana’s untimely death.”

The Candle in the Wind singer continued: “After a hectic year 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.”

Elton explained he put on a private jet himself for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to provide “high level protection”, but ensured it was carbon neutral. 

“To maintain a high level of much-needed protection, we provided them with a private jet flight,” he wrote.

“To support Prince Harry’s commitment to the environment, we ensured their flight was carbon neutral, by making the appropriate contribution to Carbon Footprint.” 

Elton concluded: “I highly respect and applaud both Harry and Meghan’s commitment to charity and I’m calling on the press to cease these relentless and untrue assassinations on their character that are spuriously crafted on an almost daily basis.”
