As the coronation of Charles III approaches, Buckingham Palace is working on the organization of the big concert that will be held in his honor at Windsor Castle on May 7. If many personalities have refused to participate, a famous American rapper said in the columns of The Sun: “I’m ready to play at the coronation.
Snoop Dogg at the coronation of King Charles III and Camilla Parker Bowles? With the approach of May 6, the program of festivities is gradually revealed. If many personalities, like Harry Styles, Elton John or the Spice Girls, would have refused to sing at the big concert organized at Windsor Castle the day after the ceremony, the rapper is “ready”. “I’m ready to perform at the coronation. Make it happen,” said the performer of Young, Wild and Free to the British media The Sun, on March 23.
However, Snoop Dogg has only one condition: to wear the “red” suit of the famous king’s guard in front of Buckingham Palace. If the father of Princes William and Harry agrees that Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., his real name, sings for his coronation, it would be a nice tribute to his mother Elizabeth II. Last September, the Twitter account Hiphop 50 shared a clip from a radio show in which the rapper told of his amazing connection to the late Queen of England.
The surprising story between Snoop Dogg and Elizabeth II
At the time of his first concert in the UK in 1994, his name was mentioned in a murder case after his bodyguard shot a man from the car Snoop Dogg was driving. Across the Channel, the Daily Star tabloid welcomed him with a photo of himself on the cover with the headline Expel the bastard from the country!
“When they tried to deport me from England, the queen made a comment that her grandchildren loved Snoop Doggy Dogg, and he had done no harm to the UK, so she gave me permission to be here,” he had told the radio. He added: “Those grandchildren are now Princes William and Harry, they loved my music. There is a mutual love and respect.
