London – British King Charles III. thanked the singers who performed at the coronation concert held in his honor at Windsor Castle on Sunday for a great experience. Reuters reported about it today. In Britain, the long bank holiday weekend of Saturday’s coronation celebrations is coming to an end, today is dedicated to volunteering.
Charles and his wife Camilla were crowned at London’s Westminster Abbey on Saturday in the biggest ceremonial event in Britain in 70 years. Sunday’s celebrations culminated in a “coronation concert” featuring singers such as Lionel Richie and Katy Perry. Together with the royal family, the performance was watched by 20,000 spectators.
In an unexpected post-concert comedy sketch, Karel and Camilla interrupted Richie and Perry as they recounted their experiences over the weekend on the TV show American Idol, in which both singers are judges. Karel asked Richie if the singers would be there “all night”, in reference to the singer’s hit All night long. “I just wanted to check how long you will be using this room?” asked the laughing king. “Thank you so much for your great performance and Katy, it was amazing, it really was,” he added.
After a weekend of street celebrations and festivities, thousands of organizations will come together for a volunteering program today, which is Britain’s Coronation Bank Holiday.
Charles’ son Prince William and his wife Kate visited a scout troop in Slough, near Windsor, with their children. It was the first royal event of its kind for their youngest son, five-year-old Prince Louis, who drove a loaded wheelbarrow, played with a bow and arrow and ate fire-roasted marshmallows.
Other royals volunteered at events across the country, as did Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and opposition Labor leader Keir Starmer.
“I don’t think any other country could have put on such a dazzling spectacle over the weekend,” Sunak said while visiting a community lunch outside London, where he mingled with diners and cut parsnips and strawberries. “Participating in the coronation mass was deeply moving and incredibly uplifting, and I think it’s an experience that no one will forget for the rest of their lives,” he added.
