Diana, Princess of Wales became "airy fairy" with her friends towards the end of her life, Sir Elton John has claimed.
The singer, who was a close friend of Diana’s, told music channel VH1 he believed she trusted "the wrong people".
He said: "She didn’t trust the people she should have trusted, her true friends. I always thought the people that really felt for her and really were true to her she just was a bit airy fairy towards in the end."
Sir Elton, who performed an emotional re-worked version of his hit Candle in the Wind at the Princess’s funeral in 1997, also said he found out about her death through a fax sent by a friend, offering condolences.
And he told the TV special Me, Myself and I, which was shown on US television on Thursday night, that singing at the funeral was a surreal experience.
He said: "What was going through my mind was ‘Don’t sing a wrong note. Don’t sing the wrong note. Be stoic. Don’t break down and just do it to the best you can possibly do it without showing any emotion whatsoever.’"
