Rock and royals! King Charles III, Queen Camilla and other members of the royal family were all smiles as they arrived at the coronation concert.
The king, 74, and queen, 75, were joined by Prince William, Princess Kate and their eldest two children — Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 8 — in the front row of the VIP box. The musical event — held on the East Lawn of Windsor Castle on Sunday, May 7 — comes one day after Charles and Camilla’s official coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
The Prince of Wales, 40, and George twinned in navy suits, while Charlotte looked adorable in her cream-colored dress with a navy bow. The Princess of Wales, 41, for her part, made a statement in a red pantsuit. George and Charlotte sat in between their parents, who sweetly pointed out the various acts on stage.
The royal family — including pregnant Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank, Zara Tindall (née Phillips) and spouse Mike Tindall — sat in the royal box to watch the various musical acts.
Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, was also among the royals to step out at the concert after Us Weekly previously confirmed that she had been left off the guest list for the crowning ceremony.
“It’s a state occasion, and being divorced, I don’t think you can have it both ways,” the 63-year-old Duchess of York, who shares Eugenie and Princess Beatrice with ex-husband Prince Andrew, told ITV last month. “You’re either in or out, don’t muck around.”
Ferguson watched the procession from home via the televised broadcast before stepping out at the Sunday gathering with her daughters.
The Coronation Concert, one of the celebratory events following Charles’ crowning ceremony, featured performances from Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, Nicole Scherzinger and Andrea Bocelli. The Coronation Choir — a group comprised of singers from across the U.K. — will also make an appearance. Sunday’s show marks the first time a concert has been held on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Charles and Camilla, who wed in 2005, both immediately assumed their new royal titles after his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died at age 96 in September 2022. Their coronation marked the final step of Operation Golden Orb, a plan for Charles’ ascension to the throne which began after the queen’s death. Their coronation was officially held eight months later.
His and Her Majesties were blessed and anointed as England’s newest monarchs on Saturday, May 6, at London’s Westminster Abbey. Will and Kate — as well as their three children, including youngest son Prince Louis, 5 — attended the service alongside Charles’ three siblings, nieces, nephews and second son Prince Harry. The Duke of Sussex, 38, attended solo as wife Meghan Markle opted to remain in California with the couple’s children to celebrate Archie’s 4th birthday, which also took place on Saturday. Harry left the U.K. shortly after the ceremony concluded and did not join the other royals on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
