David entered into a civil partnership with Sir Elton in December 2005, before getting married when same-sex marriages became legal in England and Wales in March 2014.
They welcomed their eldest son Zachary in 2010 through surrogacy and Elijah in 2013 through the same surrogate, both of whom joined their famous parents for the outing on their parents’ yacht at a nearby port.
Elton and David often spend the summer months in the south of France, thanks to their home, Castel Mont-Alban, which overlooks Nice on the French Riviera.
He bought the Belle Epoque villa surrounded by the green spaces of Mont Boron in the 1990s and locals described it as the “Bel Air of Nice” thanks to the concentration of multi-million pound mansions in the region.
