Sir Elton John has spent 'every single day' with family amid coronavirus crisis

  Sir Elton John has spent 'every single day' with family amid coronavirus crisis Sir Elton John says spending the coronavirus lockdown with his family has been the one "silver lining".The 73-year-old musician and David Furnish have been side-by-side throughout the pandemic, and Elton says that spending quality time with his husband and their children - Elijah, seven, and Zachary, nine - has been the one "silver lining" from the ongoing crisis.

It is not known which mansion David was referring to but it's likely to be their Windsor home which has a sprawling garden complete with a large lake to feed ducks.

He said: 'Because Elton is 73 we've been doing a more restricted version of lockdown so one thing the boys haven't been able to do is get out and mix with their friends which I feel really conscious of so how many activities can we do with them at home?

'I grew up in Canada, I was a cub scout, I was a boy scout, I love camping, and I am a camper.'

David revealed that he and Elton didn't give their two sons a 'glamping' experience and instead took them to the woods in their garden where they had to build a fire pit, pitch a tent and gather wood.

He said: 'I didn't do glamping with the boys - that's the posh camping where everything laid out beautifully for you.

'We just went out into the woods here on our land and taught the boys how to clear a campsite, and dug and built a fire pit and pitched a tent and gathered wood for kindling.

'Taught them how to start a fire, how to cook dinner in the fire, how to roast marshmallows and they hadn't done any of that stuff before.

Covid-19 deaths in Britain could have been HALVED by an early lockdown

  Covid-19 deaths in Britain could have been HALVED by an early lockdown Professor Andrew Harvey, an emeritus professor at the University of Cambridge, calculated the death toll could have been halved if Britain went into lockdown on March 19, rather than March 26.The UK went into full lockdown on March 23, when 36 people were dying of Covid-19 per day on average.

David said the 'silver lining' of lockdown has been spending so much time together as a family as Elton is currently off from his touring.

He sweetly said: 'The silver lining in this cloud is that we've been together every single day, every meal and we've been doing so much together which isn't normally the case because Elton is off on the road touring and doing shows.

'To see and be with the boys as much as I ever have been has just been amazing. I'm watching them grow and change every day right before my eyes.'

Elton had to postpone his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

David and Elton own six properties in total located in California, Atlanta, London, Windsor, Nice and Venice.
