Elton John says he offered Prince Harry and his wife Meghan the use of a private jet to travel to his home in Nice, France for a private holiday because the aircraft offered a high level of “much needed protection.”

The 72 year old Zoomer legend says he has a profound sense of obligation to Harry because of his friendship with the royal’s mother, Princess Diana.

In a series of tweets, Elton John says he’s deeply distressed by media accounts accusing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of being hypocritical for using the private jet, given their devotion to eco-causes.

John says the flight was carbon neutral because it was offset by a contribution to Carbon Footprint.

Both Elton John and Meghan Markle have connections to Toronto. Elton John’s husband, David Furnish, was raised in Toronto. Meghan Markle lived in Toronto for a couple of years when she starred in the TV drama Suits.
