A royal good time! Nicole Scherzinger, Stella McCartney, Ncuti Gatwa and more stars celebrated King Charles III’s rise to the British throne at the official Coronation Concert.
The stars arrived at the East Lawn of Windsor Castle on Sunday, May 7, to see many music icons perform in honor of the newest reigning monarch, who was officially crowned one day prior.
The Pussycat Dolls songstress, 44, stunned on the red carpet in a black mini dress. Scherzinger will later take the castle stage and perform some of her biggest hits.
“Truly honored to be performing at this weekend’s #CoronationOnTheBBC,” she gushed via Instagram Story on Saturday, May 6, the same day as the 74-year-old king’s crowning ceremony. “Tune in to see me perform tomorrow at the #CoronationConcert.”
Scherzinger isn’t the only celebrity to bring their Sunday best to the red carpet occasion. Gatwa, 30, for his part, brought his Doctor Who flair as he sported a long trench coat and matching trousers. Olly Murs, Hugh Bonneville and other stars also stepped out for the show.
The concert will also feature headlining sets from Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli and Take That.
Ahead of her performance, the “Teenage Dream” songstress, 38, shared that she was “grateful” for the opportunity to be involved in the coronation festivities and explained how she established a connection with Charles before his big day.
“I met His Majesty-to-be a few years ago and he named me as one of the ambassadors to his organization, The British Asian Trust, which is an organization that helps fight to end child trafficking,” the Grammy nominee told Entertainment Tonight in April. “I’m also an ambassador for UNICEF, and it really aligned with my values. That’s mostly why I’m going, to be an ambassador and to say, ‘Hey, this is me from the USA.’ No, but it’s so cool.”
Perry’s fellow American Idol judge, Richie, expressed his own excitement while attending Charles and Queen Camilla’s garden party on Thursday, May 4, ahead of the coronation.
“I’m really trying to be, ‘This is a calm moment for me.’ I’m so excited,” the “All Night Long” crooner, 73, told SkyNews during the event. “I’m like a kid at Christmas time!”
Richie formed a close relationship with the king after he was appointed as First Global Ambassador and First Chairman of the Global Ambassador Group for The Prince’s Trust back in 2019. Richie and Perry also attended Charles’ Saturday ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
In addition to the Sunday performers, the likes of Tom Cruise and Winnie the Pooh are set to be special guests during the show.
