Elton John Defends Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

Elton John is taking a stand against the press in defense of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. As we previously reported, the Royal couple went on a retreat to Ibiza last week. Well, they also went to Nice in France, and they’ve been taking heat from the press over the trips.

Why? Well, Harry is outspoken about the environment, so the couple was labeled hypocrites for taking private jets to their destinations. Plus, haters wondered about the price tag of the trips. But taking to Twitter, Elton John – a “dear friend” of Harry’s late mother Princess Diana – reveals that he offered up his home for their stay in Nice, and provided them with a “carbon neutral” private jet flight.

“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,” he writes. “After a hectic year continuing their hard work and dedication to charity, David and I wanted the young family to have a private holiday… to maintain a high level of much-needed protection, we provided them with a private jet flight.”
