Katy Perry was seen struggling to find her seat during King Charles III’s coronation at Westminster Abbey in London, which became a viral meme on Twitter. Perry later joked about the moment and will perform at the coronation concert on Sunday in support of the British Asian Trust’s Children’s Protection Fund. Perry had previously met Charles in Mumbai in 2019 and later became an ambassador for the charity, which aims to tackle poverty in South Asia.
Katy Perry caused amusement on Twitter as she struggled to find her seat at King Charles III’s coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London.
Katy Perry was seen wandering around Westminster Abbey in London, looking for her seat for King Charles III’s coronation, prompting hilarity on Twitter. Perry was wearing a lavender Vivienne Westwood suit set with a giant fascinator and accompanied by British Vogue editor Edward Enninful. After her search for a seat, she joked on Twitter, “Don’t worry guys, I found my seat.” Perry is taking a temporary leave of absence from American Idol to perform at the coronation concert Sunday night.
Perry met Charles in 2019 during an event in Mumbai before he appointed her as an ambassador for the British Asian Trust a year later. The nonprofit was co-founded by Charles to tackle poverty in South Asia. Perry is also excited to be performing at the coronation concert, saying in a statement last month that she is “helping to shine a further light on the British Asian Trust’s Children’s Protection Fund, whose work includes on-ground initiatives to fundraising, with the aim to find solutions to child trafficking.”
Other celebrities set to perform include Lionel Richie, Take That, Andrea Bocelli, and Bryn Terfel. Rolling Stone reported earlier this year that Adele, Elton John, Robbie Williams, and the Spice Girls all turned down offers from the palace. Perry revealed last week that she would be staying in Windsor Castle during her visit, calling it an “honor” to celebrate Charles’ crowning, eight months after his mother, Queen Elizabeth II’s death at age 96.
