Renowned singer Lionel Richie recently performed at the Coronation Concert, where he shared his thoughts on the new King’s potential impact on the monarchy. Richie was among the guests at the coronation service, which was attended by around 20,000 members of the public. The concert was held at Windsor Castle on Sunday evening, following the royal couple’s crowning at Westminster Abbey.
Speaking backstage, Richie commented on the King’s new role, saying that he thinks the new King will bring a new flavor to the monarchy. He also mentioned that the King has an amazing sense of humor that the public has not yet seen, and that he believes the King will show some of this humor in the future. Richie also praised the new King’s inclusiveness.
Richie was happy to perform at the Coronation Concert and eagerly accepted the invitation to perform. He initially questioned whether the invitation was a joke, but felt honored when it was confirmed as genuine.
Regarding the significance of the event, Richie said that it was an honor to perform at the Coronation Concert because it only happens every 80 years, except for the Queen who recently took it all the way to the end. Richie also had the opportunity to speak with the King before the concert, who expressed his happiness and excitement for the evening.
Richie took the stage to perform his hit songs “Easy” and “All Night Long,” which prompted audience members, including the King and Queen, to join in a sing-along. The atmosphere became even livelier when Prince George was spotted dancing and waving his flag with his sister, Charlotte. Zara and Mike Tindall were also seen singing and swaying to the music, along with the Duke of Edinburgh.
In conclusion, Lionel Richie has high hopes for the new King’s reign and believes that he will bring a new energy to the monarchy. The Coronation Concert was a memorable event, and Richie was honored to be a part of it.
