The iconic rock star Elton John has posted a special photo of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle on Instagram, and wrote a touching open letter about the issue that distressed him.

You can read the open letter of Elton here:

“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.
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. To maintain a high level of much-needed protection, we provided them with a private jet flight. To support Prince Harry’s commitment to the environment, we ensured their flight was carbon neutral, by making the appropriate contribution to Carbon Footprint™

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.”

A fan named Karen wrote to Elton:

“So true! I’ll always treasure your tribute to Diana and by taking care of her family, you honor her.”

Another fan said:

“It’s so amazing what you and David have done for them and you are just incredible for protecting them and Diana❤️”
