ELTON JOHN SHARES GUT-WRENCHING MESSAGE IN HONOR OF THE QUEEN
By KATHRYN COOK
On September 8, Buckingham Palace announced the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled the UK monarchy for 70 beautiful years. Tributes from the queen's famous friends have been flooding in from around the globe, including words from United Kingdom native Sir Elton John, who was knighted by Elizabeth in 1998.
"Along with the rest of the nation, I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's passing," the musician wrote in the lengthy Instagram post. "She was an inspiring presence to be around and led the country through some of our greatest and darkest moments with grace, decency, and a genuine caring warmth."
John added that the queen "has been a huge part" of his life, spanning from his "childhood" to the present time, and noted that he "will miss her dearly." As many know, John also shared a close bond with another former royal family member, Princess Diana; the singer famously performed "Candle in the Wind" at her funeral.
