Elton gives candid Diana interview to Britain's Sunday Telegraph, August 30, 1998.
Recalls how once he was off shopping in London and his car nearly collided with Diana's car off to some official function.
"Our cars practically collided at Hyde Park Corner. She said she had to go somewhere extremely dull and she wished she could come with me."
Elton also said: "It's none of my business but, if I was going to bury (Diana) anywhere, I would have liked it to have been in Westminster Abbey, so that people could come in and they wouldn't have to pay to see her."
