Meghan Markle wants Elton John to teach her baby how to play the piano in the future
According to a new report, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has asked Sir Elton John to teach her child with Prince Harry (when he's a bit older) how to play the piano. This decision by the pregnant Duchess comes after the musical legend gave a fabulous performance at Meghan and Harry's wedding in May last year.
A royal source claimed that the royal couple, who really love the musical superstar, believes that Elton will be the perfect tutor for their baby, who is due to be born in April.
"Meghan and Harry adore Elton and loved him singing at their wedding," the source told The Sun. "Meghan has been saying he’s the perfect person to teach their child the piano," the same source continued. "He’s apparently said he’d love to. Music is hugely important to both Meghan and Elton, so who better?"
The 72-year-old musician had treated Meghan and Harry to four songs at the reception after the Duke of Sussex asked guests if any of them could play the piano. Elton went on to perform 'Tiny Dancer', complete with lyrics from LA Lady (Meghan's favorite), along with 'I'm Still Standing', 'Your Song', and 'Circle of Life' for the royals and their guests.
Elton, who is a father of two, was a good friend of Prince Harry and William's late mother Princess Diana, and he was also the one to perform 'Candle in the Wind' at the deceased royal's 1997 funeral. The singer has also worked with the Duke of Sussex for charitable causes, most notably those that deal with sufferers of HIV.
News of Meghan's choice of music tutor for her upcoming child comes after reports that Prince William came to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's rescue when they were facing resistance to the proposal of securing their own household — one separate from Kensington Palace.
British correspondent Omid Scobie, while speaking on the podcast 'On Heir', revealed that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles were initially reluctant and hesitant to grant Harry his own household, given that the royal is not a direct heir to the throne.
However, William understood how the royal family's global image was at stake if Meghan and Harry were to be just dismissed, and so, he decided to step in and fight for his younger brother to get a bigger budget for his own team.
