Sir Elton has praised Prince Harry for continuing his late mother’s charity work.

The pianist was a friend of Princess Diana, and he believes the royal would be very proud of her son for setting up the Sentebale charity in Africa 10 years ago.

Speaking in the new ITV documentary Prince Harry in Africa, Elton said: “If his mother was alive, she’d still be doing the work she set out to be doing, and he’s carrying it on in the best possible way.”

Chris Martin and Joss Stone also recognised the young man for his charity work.

In the programme, the prince urged everyone to help others in any way they can.

He said: “If you’re me, if you’re your Average Joe, if whoever you are, if you can’t affect politics and change the big things in the world then just do whatever you can do, whether it’s in your local community, your village, your local church, walking down the street, opening a door for an old lady, helping them cross the road.

“Whatever if it is, just do good. Why wouldn’t you?”
