Sir Elton John is one of the legends in the music industry. The 73-year-old singer is very close to England’s Royal family and that too from the very beginning. He was best friends with Princess Diana and has always supported her kids Prince Harry and Prince William with everything, and now also supports Meghan Markle.
During a recent interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Grammy-award winning singer opened about his past struggles with alcoholism.
Sir Elton John recently appeared on the Archewell Audio podcast and spoke about his past struggles. “I’m a recovering alcoholic so I have an AA meeting from this house every Sunday. I connect with friends who I’ve known for over 30 years in the programme, and that’s great. If it hadn’t been for Zoom I don’t know what we would’ve done, I really don’t,” he said.
Sir Elton John continued, “Without Zoom … it’s been a lifesaver. Reflecting on the most magical day having celebrated my Sobriety Birthday. So many lovely cards, flowers and chips from my sons, David, friends in the Program, staff at the office and in our homes.”
He concluded by saying, “I’m truly a blessed man. If I hadn’t finally taken the big step of asking for help 30 years ago, I’d be dead. Thank-you from the bottom of my heart to all the people who have inspired and supported me along the way.”
Sir Elton John really opened up to Prince Harry & Meghan Markle, didn’t he?
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s 19-month-old son is clearly taking after his dad, one of the world’s most famous gingers.
From what we can assume from the Christmas card, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son Archie is officially a redhead. On Wednesday, December 23, the animal welfare charity Mayhew revealed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s precious holiday card, which it received along with a donation. The London-based organization wrote on their social media handle, “We’re thrilled to receive wonderful Christmas wishes from our Patron, The Duchess of Sussex, who also made a personal donation, helping dogs, cats and our community.”
