On the night of King Charles’ coronation, American singer Katy Perry brought down the house with her powerful performance at Windsor Castle. But what many may not have known is that Perry was actually staying at the castle before the concert. In an interview, the pop star revealed, “I was lucky enough to stay at Windsor Castle before my performance, which was just an incredible experience. It’s a stunning place, full of history and beauty.”
Perry’s connection to the royal family goes beyond just her concert performance. She is a judge on American Idol alongside Lionel Richie, who also performed at the coronation concert. The two singers have reportedly become close with the king and queen in recent years.
In addition to her concert appearance, Perry also attended the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey with her mother, Mary Perry. In an interview with a British newspaper, she shared her excitement about being a part of such a historic event. “It was a dream come true to witness such a momentous occasion, and to be able to share it with my mom made it even more special.”
Perry documented her experience on social media, sharing backstage photos before the concert. One particular photo showed her embracing her mother in a tender hug, which she captioned, “My #idol set is a little different today #CoronationConcert.” The post received a lot of attention, with many fans and members of the royal family expressing their appreciation for Perry’s performance.
In response to the post, the royal family thanked Perry for her contribution to the coronation concert, tweeting, “Thank you for a fantastic performance at the #CoronationConcert!” It was clear that Perry had left a lasting impression on both the audience and the royals.
The coronation concert was a star-studded event, featuring performances from Take That, Paloma Faith, Andrea Bocelli, Sir Bryn Terfel, and Alexis Ffrench, in addition to Perry and Richie. The concert was a fitting end to a weekend of celebrations in honor of the new king, and it was clear that Perry was honored to have been a part of it.
As the coronation weekend came to a close, Perry reflected on her experience in the UK. “It was truly an unforgettable weekend,” she said. “To be able to witness such a historic event and perform at such a beautiful venue was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I’ll never forget it.”
