Elton Tells Prince Harry He Has Diana's 'Incredible Ability'
In a clip from the ITV documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, the singer and the Prince are sitting at a table discussing the work and life of Diana.
Speaking about a photo on the table which shows Diana smiling warmly at a patient at an Aids clinic, Elton told Prince Harry he’s more like his mother than he thinks.
“She had this incredible ability, which he kind of inherited - and I’ve told him that and he said thanks very much - to make people feel at ease and make them feel that everything’s going to be alright,” Elton said.
“I haven’t experienced many people in my life who’ve had that ability.
"She could walk into a room of people and make them feel as if everything was great.”
The British singer - who is reported to have became firm friends with Diana after meeting at Prince Andrew’s 21st – said it was “incredible” to have someone from the royal family care about the people suffering from the disease.
“It was considered to be a gay disease and for someone who was within the royal family and who was a woman and who was straight and to have someone care from the other side was an incredible gift,” he said.
Prince Harry also spoke about the picture, saying he could see from the photo the light Diana brought to people’s lives.
“When you look back to these days, when actually the reality was doom and gloom yet everybody in that photograph is smiling because of her,” he said.
Elton said there was a “positive, wonderful glow” on the Princess’s face in every photo.
