Katy Perry to Perform at King Charles’ Coronation Ceremony
American pop star Katy Perry is set to perform at King Charles’ coronation ceremony on May 7, alongside other performers such as Lionel Richie, Take That, Andrea Bocelli, Bryn Terfel, Freya Ridings, and Alexis Ffrench. Perry was asked by Charles to appear, and the two first met during an event in Mumbai in 2019, before Charles appointed Perry as an ambassador for the British Asian Trust a year later. Perry’s appointment to the charity was criticized by some because she is neither British nor Asian.
Richie, a Grammy- and Oscar-winning singer, is also connected to Charles, having been appointed by the former Prince of Wales as the first global ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, a charity founded by Charles in 1976. Several British performers declined invitations to perform at the coronation, with much speculation that they wanted to avoid being associated with recent Buckingham Palace scandals.
King Charles will be crowned on May 7 during the United Kingdom’s traditional coronation ceremony, eight months after he ascended to the throne following Queen Elizabeth II’s death. The event will include an estimated 2,000 guests and will feature a number of historical relics. The coronation will also feature an emoji modeled after St. Edward’s Crown.
Perry’s performance at the coronation ceremony is expected to help shine a further light on the British Asian Trust’s Children Protection Fund, a cause she has been committed to for a long time. Perry is currently earning $25 million per season of American Idol, adding to her estimated net worth of $38.5 million.
