Music inspired by Royalty

I have always loved the composition "Lady Di", performed by Richard Clayderman and composed by Paul De Senneville. Does anyone know if she ever witnessed a performance of the piece?

What other pieces of music have been directly inspired by members of Royalty?

I think Adamo composed a song for Princess Mathilde few years ago. I don't know it's name though.

Singer Mika wrote a song named Grace Kelly after the American Oscar winning actress turned Princess Grace of Monaco in 2007.

I could be wrong but I believe that Elton John wrote the song Candle in the Wind specifically for Diana's funeral since they were very close friends. It is also one of my favorites. I found the video of him performing it at Diana's funeral very moving. I also like how he said he would never perform the song again, it makes it even more special (imo).

Don't you mean "The four Seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi?

Anyway, what is the connection to royalty? Is it that he, when composing "The four Seasons", held the position as Maestro di Cappella of the court of prince Phillip of Hesse-Darmstadt, governor of Mantua?

The version of Candle in the Wind that was played at Diana's funeral was indeed created for Diana, but the first version of the song was written about Marilyn Monroe. Elton changed the lyrics in 1997 for Diana.

Popular rumor has it that Henry VIII wrote "Greensleeves" for Anne Boleyn although there is no proof, and the song was probably written during the Elizabethan era.
