9 Celebrities Who Are Friends With Royals

Date February 5, 2018

When we consider celebrity friendships, we assume that most people probably simply hang with their own crew.

For instance, Hollywood types hang out with fellow Hollywood types, while royals spend time with other people with 'blue blood'. But it is possible to have things in common with people you do not necessarily share the same interests.


The British royal family seems to hang out a lot with our favourite celebrities. And we have to say, that's really cool.

Elton John and Princess Diana

Not all of these celebs have been vocal about their strong friendship with royalty, and this also includes Elton John. However, during a recent interview, he opened up about how painful her death was to him.

We had a falling out, but we reconciled in the end. It was an extraordinary summer. Gianni Versace was murdered [on July 15, 1997], and then Diana rang me up and we reconciled. And six weeks later, I’m in the same house, and she’s dead.


He revealed that things had not always been smooth between them. However, he was glad they patched things up before her demise.
