Remembering Princess Diana on her funeral anniversary: Elton John performs 'Candle in the Wind'

In honour of the 22nd anniversary of Princess Diana's funeral, we're remembering the "People's Princess" with Elton John's tribute song to her, 'Candle in the Wind'.

Elton gave an emotional performance of the track at her funeral on the piano, before dashing off to the studio to record it so it could be released as a single, with all proceeds to be distributed between charities close to the princess's heart.

The song - which has sold over 33 million copies worldwide - entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-selling single since the music charts began, a record it still holds till this day.

Watching him perform the powerful song still brings a tear to our eyes – it's no wonder Elton has never performed the song again in public.
