Elton John Responds to Attacks on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Private Jet Use

Elton John has spoken out after British tabloids attacked Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for taking private jets on their vacations to Ibiza and Nice, France this summer (despite other royals, like Kate Middleton and Prince William also taking private jets without the same scrutiny). John, who hosted Meghan and Harry in Nice, explained that he provided the flight, and their flight had been carbon neutral. (Harry had been attacked for being an environmentalist.) Meghan and Harry’s flight to Ibiza was also carbon neutral, royal reporter Omid Scobie wrote on Twitter.

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.
