An emotional Sir Elton John had performed Candle In The Wind at Princess Diana’s funeral.

The pair were good friends before her death in 1997 and Elton John said Diana was not open with her friends had been ‘airy fairy’ with them.

He told VH1 RocDoc ‘Me, Myself and I’: ‘I think in the end with Diana she trusted the wrong people.

‘She didn’t trust the people she should have trusted, her true friends.

‘I always thought the people that really felt for her and really were true to her she just was a bit airy fairy towards in the end.’

Sir Elton, who told how he found out about Diana’s death through a fax sent by a friend offering condolences the next morning, became emotional while watching footage of the funeral.

The property listing says: ‘The ground floor hosts a magnificent open plan kitchen/dining and reception room which benefit from plenty of natural light from the unusually high ceilings and bi-folding doors that span the width of the house and lead onto the landscaped courtyard garden.

‘The designer kitchen features integrated appliances and a breakfast bar for informal, everyday family-dining thus, enhancing the home’s contemporary atmosphere.
