Elton John lashes out at 'malicious' reports about Harry and Meghan's visit

Elton John lashes out at 'malicious' reports about Harry and Meghan's visit

Harry and Meghan, who are environmentalists, have received some criticism in the press for taking the jet, which Elton spoke out against in his tweets, evoking the late Princess Diana.

"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", John wrote on his social media accounts.

To keep his mother "with us on this insane journey together", as Harry said, he proposed with a ring that includes two diamonds from Diana's personal collection, as well as a stone from Botswana, where the two traveled early in their relationship (Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with Diana's engagement ring in 2010).

The singer also highlighted the pair's "hard work and dedication to charity", insisting he and his husband David Furnish had wanted the couple to enjoy a private holiday with baby Archie.

He says the flight was carbon neutral because it was offset by a 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 nearly daily basis".

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex attend "The Lion King" European Premiere at Leicester Square on July 14, 2019 in London, England. And now, Elton is speaking out against some of the reporting that emerged about their trip.

"Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world", the quote read on a blue background that features Meghan and Harry's joint monogram.

The royal couple and their three-month-old son, Archie, were photographed over the weekend boarding a jet on the French Riviera after a short trip to Nice.

The duke has been vocal about environmental damage to the planet.

"Only now are we starting to notice and understand the damage that we've been causing". Harry and Meghan reportedly met on a blind date the previous summer.

Private jets typically burn more fuel per person per hour, because they carry fewer passengers than commercial planes.
