The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have launched their Spotify podcast series by asking some famous faces to share their thoughts about the past year as well as their hopes for the new year. The guests included Elton, Deepak Chopra, Tyler Perry, Stacey Abrams, James Corden, Matt Haig, and Naomi Osaka.
The former remembered being in the midst of a tour before Covid started. ''It was very strange because we were going full pelt, and then all of a sudden we ground to a halt.''
He added: ''I'm 73 years old and I'm a semi diabetic, so I'm in a risky area there; I have an underlying condition as they say. I've seen my immediate family - Zachary, Elijah and David all the time.''
With other relatives, Elton has had to keep in touch by phone or through Zoom.
Zoom has been ''a lifesaver,'' because he was able to continue with his AA meetings, as he is a recovering alcoholic.
At the end of the show, 19-month-old Archie joined his parents, Harry and Meghan, in wishing everyone a Happy New Year.
