Elton John shares a heartbreaking message in honor of the Queen

On September 8th, the world went dark for a moment as Buckingham Palace announced the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled the British monarchy for 70 glorious years. Tributes from celebrities have been pouring in from around the world since news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s death broke. British native Elton John was among the first many big names to share some touching words for the late Queen – and it’s clear her legacy had a profound impact on him. “Joining the rest of the nation, I am deeply saddened by the news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth,” he wrote in the lengthy Instagram post. “She was an inspiring presence, guiding the country through some of our greatest and darkest moments with grace, grace and a genuine, caring warmth.”

The singer added that the Queen was “a huge part” of his life, from his “childhood” to the present, when he revealed he “will miss her dearly.” Many of his 4.1 million+ followers flocked to the comments section to echo John’s sentiments. “So sadly RIP our Queen Goodbye England’s Rose,” one person commented. “Rest in peace our Queen,” chimed in another with a red heart emoji.

As many know, John also had a close bond with another former member of the royal family, Princess Diana. At her funeral, he belted out his hit song “Candle in the Wind,” which was enough to bring tears to everyone’s eyes.
