By royal appointment: Elton John introduces his second child, Elijah, to Kate and Wills

Sir Elton John has had a close bond with Prince William ever since he sang Candle In The Wind at Princess Diana’s funeral. So it makes sense that Kate and Wills were two of the first people to meet the latest addition to the Furnish-John household.

Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John was born to a surrogate mother in Las Vegas – the same secretive woman who gave birth to Elton and his husband David’s first child. The couple have released a statement saying they are: ‘Overwhelmed with happiness.’

Now that Kate and Wills are expecting a child of their own, it was even more fitting to introduce them to little Elijah. And Elton even took the opportunity to give Kate a quick lesson in nappy changing while he was at Kensington Palace.

Kate looked thoroughly besotted with the little bundle of joy, and now that the worst of her chronic morning sickness is behind her she was especially observant during the nappy changing lesson – putting her face just centimetres away from Elijah’s bum.

It is unclear whether Elton was making the visit to eye-up some potential godparents – or to show off his godarent credentials (after-all the Beckhams have entrusted him with their children). More likely, he simply wanted to show the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge just how happy they will be in July when they welcome their own child into the world.
