Plans are in full swing for King Charles’ Coronation in less than three months, and he had some suggestions, particularly about the singers who would perform at the ceremony.
Unsurprisingly, the monarch placed two prominent music stars, Adele and Ed Sheeran, at the top of his list, given their origins. However, both refused to perform at the event, much to the disappointment of the royal family.
King Charles III is let down by Adele and Ed Sheeran’s refusal to perform at his coronation
King Charles’ Coronation will be held on May 6, accompanied by a concert the following day, which was supposed to include the big names in the music industry, Adele and Ed Sheeran.
A source revealed that “The King has suggested a number of people he would like to perform, and Adele and Ed were on that list. He was very keen for them to be part of the concert.”
Unfortunately, both stars declined the invitation, with Sheeran giving a legitimate reason while Adele declined “without explanation.” According to Marie Clairethe ‘Shivers’ singer will be performing in Texas the day before the Coronation concert, making it challenging to get everything in.
On the other hand, Adele does not appear to have any conflicting events scheduled for May 7th, and she is not booked for public appearances after March 25th.
The informant shared, “There is a team to get the talent registered, so they contacted the two of them but got a response saying they were not available. They are titans in the showbiz industry. And are typically British but also known worldwide. It’s such a shame.”
As for other performers at the Coronation concert, there has been no confirmation, except that Lionel Richie and the Spice Girls may have a show. There have also been speculations of a Harry Styles appearance.
Also, as for the invitees, there is still no RSVP from Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, as The Daily Mail reports that the duo is still unsure. Harry reportedly wants to meet his father and brother, Prince William, before the ceremony. Thankfully, the Sussexes still have more than a month to finish, as the OSA is expected in early April.
About the Spice Girls’ possible appearance at the coronation
While fans may be disappointed by Adele and Sheeran’s absence from the occasion, they are likely to see the Spice Girls reunite and perform for the first time in over a decade. TThe girl group that significantly influenced the world with their music in the nineties had their last performance as a group during the 2012 Olympic closing ceremony.
As OSSTET reported, royal organizers were reportedly keen to include the group as “star signing” for the Coronation concert, and the women are “seriously considering” being featured.
Melanie Brown’ Mel B,’ Melanie Chrisholm’ Mel C,’ Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham, who all make up the band, will mark a big milestone with their show because “The Coronation is as special as the Olympics.”
Meanwhile, Mel B and Mel C are believed to be bringing the plan to fruition by trying to convince their co-stars to take part. Not long before, Mel C revealed that the group was unhappy about not performing at the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert last June, given their involvement with “families and other commitments and responsibilities”.
In a more recent interview, Mel B hinted that the Coronation concert will feature all five OG members, a project they were “very excited about.”
