In a dazzling display of music and dance, members of the royal family joined thousands of concert-goers at Windsor Castle to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. The event, which took place on May 7, featured an impressive line-up of performers including Take That, Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Paloma Faith, Andrea Bocelli, Sir Bryn Terfel, and Alexis Ffrench.
Legendary singer Lionel Richie took the stage on Sunday evening, performing some of his biggest hits in front of the King and the rest of the royal family. In a video from the concert, Zara and Mike Tindall could be seen swaying back and forth as they waved union jack flags in the air. Another clip showed Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh getting into the groove from the stands, while her husband – Prince Edward, Duke of Edinburgh – “boogied” with Zara and Mike Tindall. Even Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, eight, joined in on the fun, waving their flags and singing along to “All Night Long”.
As senior members of the royal family danced to some of their favorite songs, the younger royals were also entertained by none other than the Muppets Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. The amusing skit, which saw the Muppet characters asking to be shown their seats in the royal box, prompted smiles and laughter from Prince George and his younger sister.
The coronation concert moment received praise from royal fans on social media, with many sharing their reactions to the British royal family’s carefree dancing. “Watching the royal family attempting to groove at the #CoronationConcert has been my weekend highlight so far,” tweeted one person. “They were all loving it! Sophie is just great,” said someone else. “She has the moves,” another fan agreed. “Zara and Mike always a vibe,” wrote one person, while someone else tweeted: “They were really getting into it!”
The concert was just one of the many events held over the weekend to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. The festivities began on Saturday with a traditional coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey, followed by a series of community events and street parties on Sunday. The royal family also shared a series of photos to their official social media accounts, captioning: “What a wonderful weekend celebrating the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla! Thank you to everyone who joined us in person and online.”
The coronation marks a new chapter in the history of the British monarchy, and the royal family appeared to be in high spirits throughout the weekend’s events. As King Charles III and Queen Camilla embark on their reign, they have the support of the entire royal family and the British people. As the monarch himself said in a message to the nation: “We look forward to serving you, to working with you, and to bringing our country together as we embark on this new chapter in our history.”
