Elton John and Princess Diana were close as siblings. He’s clearly pleased that Prince William and Kate Middleton made Diana one of their newborn daughter’s names.
Elton tells London’s Daily Mail that the parents “are lovely people, they’ve got a boy and girl now, and I’m just delighted that one of the names is Diana. And I hope that little girl is healthy and they have the happiest life.”
The princess, who was born last Saturday, carries the full name Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Elton, of course, sang a reworked version of ‘Candle in the Wind’ at Diana’s funeral. I have a feeling wherever she is… she’s sending love to that new little girl.
