In his new book, Endgame, Omid Scobie has made a number of revelations about the British royal family. According to the expert, an international star refused to perform at the coronation of Charles III.
An event engraved in British memory. On 6 May, King Charles III was crowned at Westminster Abbey in a historic ceremony. During the event, many artists performed to pay tribute to Elizabeth II’s son. These included Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli and Take That. Unfortunately, other international music stars could have been present. As Omid Scobie revealed in his new book Endgame, Taylor Swift had indeed been invited.
However, the singer declined the invitation because she was in the middle of a tour. She was due to perform at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium from 5 to 7 May. But that’s not all! The interpreter of Look What You Made Me Do is not the only celebrity to have given up the privilege of singing during the coronation of Charles III. According to Omid Scobie, Elton John, the Spice Girls, Harry Styles and Adele have also declined the British royal family’s invitation.
Katy Perry reflects on her invitation to the coronation: “It’s so cool”
Despite the many rejections, the coronation ceremony of Charles III was a real success for many observers and participants. The proof? Before the event, Katy Perry expressed her excitement in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I met His Majesty a few years ago and he appointed me as one of the ambassadors of his organisation, The British Asian Trust, which is an organisation that helps fight to end child trafficking,” she had said, before concluding: “So I’m also an ambassador for UNICEF, and that really fits in with my values. That’s mainly why I’m going to be an ambassador and say, ‘Hey, I’m the one [representing the] United States.’ No, but it’s so cool.”
