The singer, who took the stage at Windsor Castle in a Disney Princess-inspired gold ball gown, sang two songs from her repertoire: “Roar” and “Firework.”
During “Roar,” which also featured a drone show accompanied by a lion in the sky above the stage, King Charles’ grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were seen bouncing around in their seats, apparently with Charlotte singing along.
Perry, who was there as an ambassador for the British Asian Trust during the brief interlude on set, said he was excited to be a part of the event. “I’m so happy to be here with you, I love you so much,” he said to the crowd of 20,000. “I’m so happy to celebrate this whole weekend, I have to bring my mom, she’s so happy to be here. We must stay at Windsor Castle – it doesn’t matter.
“Thank you for hosting me at this coronation,” Perry continued. “I want to dedicate the next song to King and the work we’re going to do together with the British Asian Trust and the Children’s Protection Fund. Thank you for bringing out the fireworks in so many young people.”
