Katy Perry is set to perform at King Charles III’s coronation on May 6 at London’s Westminster Abbey.
King Charles has been searching for big-name performers for the Coronation concert at Windsor Castle and it was previously noted that Adele and Ed Sheeran will reportedly not take part despite the invitation, on account of them being too busy to come.
The list of rejections also includes Harry Styles, Elton John, Robbie Williams and Spice Girls. They have reportedly all declined to perform at King Charles III’s coronation.
Robbie Williams has reportedly declined to play at a massive gig marking the coronation of King Charles III – despite Take That being among the biggest attractions on the bill.
Katy Perry is ‘honored’
She is ‘honored’ to be able to perform. Ahead of the event she revealed that being invited to sing at the ceremony is an honor for her as she told Extra in a Monday (April 24) interview.
Speaking with the outlet, the American Idol judge added:
“I’m an ambassador to one of his foundations for the British Asian trust, which primarily focuses on ending child trafficking, which is a huge issue of our time that people don’t talk enough about, and it just aligned with all my values. … He asked me to sing and it all aligned.”
The “Firework” singer also recalled getting the invitation to perform in the mail, stating that it “was very regal. It was like a cursive I have never seen [before] … I loved it.”
Perry revealed that the royal family is also kind enough to let her stay at the Windsor Castle, which is currently inhabited by Prince William and Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales.
“I’m really excited,” the pop star shared, later hinting that fans may want to keep an eye on her social media content in the coming weeks. “I might be posting a lot because I’m gonna be in a castle, for real. This is wild.”
