Elton dealt with the crowd stating, “Well of course you know today we had the saddest news about the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.”

During his remarks, the “Tiny Dancer” vocalist reviewed the late sovereign’s life and tradition. “I’m 75—she’s been with me all my life and I feel very sad that she won’t be with me anymore,” Elton discussed. “I’m glad she’s at peace, and I’m glad she’s at rest, and she deserves it because she’s worked bloody hard.”
