Party at the Palace: Elton John makes a poignant performance

Elton John wowed the crowd with a pre-recorded performance of “Your Song” during Saturday’s “Party at the Palace” platinum anniversary concert.

Footage of the 75-year-old singer, who was unable to perform in person as he was touring as he delivered the ballad, was projected onto Buckingham Palace itself as thousands of people watched from the Mall.

The lyrics of the song were also projected, while an orchestra accompanied it live.

The singer gave the Cambridges a romantic nod with his performance – after picking the song Kate and Prince William chose for their first dance at their wedding in 2011.

It was performed by singer Ellie Goulding, a friend of Princess Eugenie, at her wedding in 2011 and William was able to sing along at the concert last night.

He also performed for the Sussexes at their wedding.

More than 30 members of her family appeared in the Royal Box on the purpose-built stage in front of Buckingham Palace ready to join the party.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge were joined by the Queen’s cousins, children and grandchildren.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex and their children, Lady Louise Windsor and Viscount Severn, were present, as were the Princess Royal and Vice-Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Peter Phillips and his children Savannah and Isla and Zara and Mike Tindall.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not attend as it was their daughter Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor’s first birthday.

Today the Prince of Wales said he hoped the “squabbling” would not return after there was a sense of “togetherness” across the country over the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Charles and Camilla mingled with guests at the Big Jubilee Lunch at The Oval.

Gemma Snow of the Eden Project sat next to Charles for a few minutes over lunch and said he’d talked about “keeping this togetherness going”.
