Princess Diana’s death was mourned by royal fans from all over the globe. But one of the late royal’s friends said that it reached a point wherein things became uncomfortable.

In the book “Me: Elton John Autobiography,” the award-winning singer talked about the funeral version of his song “Candle In The Wind.” The song became a massive hit, but John said that he doesn’t know why people would listen to the song.

The singer also said that he never listened to “Candle In The Wind” after he performed it live at Princess Diana’s funeral. And the only time he listened to the track was when he was at the studio.

“In the end, I started feeling really uncomfortable with the single’s longevity,” John said. “Its success meant there was footage of Diana’s funeral week after week on Top Of The Pops — it almost felt like wallowing in her death, as if the mourning for her had got out of hand,” he added.

The singer went on to say that he doesn’t think that Princess Diana would’ve wanted the public’s mourning for her to last that long. In fact, until today, “Candle In The Wind” is still associated with the Princess of Wales’ funeral even though John actually released it in 1973.

At the end of the day, John said that the track has never been included in the Greatest Hits albums that he has put out. The song has never been re-released either.

Meanwhile, John also talked about his friendship with Princess Diana and admitted that they had a falling out, which lasted for years. The mom of two was supposed to write the foreword for Gianni Versace’s book, but she got cold feet at the last minute.

“I think Buckingham Palace didn’t like the idea of a member of the Royal Family having anything to do with a book that featured shots of naked guys with towels draped around them,” he said. “So, at the last moment, Diana withdrew her foreword. She said she had no idea of the book’s contents, which just wasn’t true.”

Following the incident, John became angry with Prince William and Prince Harry’s mom. He was also worried over the fact that the royal seemed to be losing contact with her closest friends.
