The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were among the famous faces who paid tribute to the music legend  ahead of his farewell show, which aired live from California’s Dodger Stadium on Sunday.

In their brief clip, which showed them in front of the entrance of the office of their organisation, Archewell, the pair was all smiles.

Duchess Meghan said: "Hi Elton, we just wanted to say congratulations and that we are just so proud of you and that we were able to see you on your farewell tour also."

Prince Harry then spoke about the special relationship the singer had with his mother, the late Princess of Wales, and continues to have with him and his family, including his children Archie Harrison, three, and Lilibet Diana, one.

The prince said: "And thank you for entertaining everybody for so many decades, thank you for being the friend that you were for my mum, thank you for being our friend...

The Duke and Duchess’s clip was placed between the best wishes to Sir Elton made by fellow singer Tony Bennett and the video filmed by US President Joe Biden and the First Lady, Dr Jill Biden.

Sir Elton, who famously sang a rewritten version of his Candle In The Wind ballad during the funeral of Princess Diana in 1997, has remained close to the pair throughout the years.

In 2019 he sided with the Sussexes in the midst of the controversy regarding their use of private jets.

He aslo revealed that he had provided them with one for their return trip to his home in Nice, France in August of that year.

Meghan and Harry’s appearance in the Disney + video follows Robert F. Kennedy’s daughter, Kara Kennedy, praising them for making their claims of racism and neglect against the royal family during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last year.
