Princess Diana passed away 20 years ago in August 1997. During Elton's interview, he talked about the 20th anniversary of her death and how he remembers her.

"She was just loved by people because she had that great ability, which her son Prince Harry has inherited, where she could walk into a room of people and make them feel at ease as if she'd known them all her life or all their life," Elton said. "And that's an incredible talent to have."

Elton went on to add that Diana was a "great friend" to him and though the duo had a falling out they reconciled before her death.
