Elton John Slams Press Over Headlines About Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Taking a Private Jet to His France Residence

Elton John is coming to the defense of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle, who together with their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, 3 months, stayed at Elton‘s private residence in the South of France for a getaway.

The couple used a private jet to arrive in Nice, France for the trip, and many have been calling out the royals for their concern for the environment while also using a private airplane.

“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,” Elton wrote on Twitter. “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.”

Elton 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. 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,” he added. “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.”
