Global superstars Adele and Ed Sheeran have declined the opportunity to perform at King Charles' coronation concert due to 'other commitments.' It is understood they are 'locked in' other commitments that would prevent them from attending.
On May 7, after the new King is crowned at Westminster Abbey, a concert is scheduled to take place and be screened live by the BBC. Several thousand tickets in pairs are expected to be won through a public ballot process.
When people in the UK are asked who they would most like to see perform at King Charles III's coronation, a few names come to mind: Lionel Richie, the Spice Girls, Harry Styles and Victoria Beckham are just a few.
King Charles and his team appear to be working overtime to ensure the event is a success. The crowning ceremony will take place on May 7, followed by an outdoor concert at Windsor Castle later that same day.
According to The Mail on Sunday, a source said the monarch was eager for Adele and Ed Sheeran to join the celebrations. Unfortunately, Sheeran declined the invite due to his engagement in Texas the night before the concert, which may have made it difficult for him to attend.
Sheeran's denial is a disappointment, as he's one of music's biggest stars and has sold millions of albums worldwide. Additionally, he's a Grammy winner and Oscar nominee; an accomplished actor and musician, Sheeran deserves to be seen onstage by all of England.
Unfortunately, his busy schedule means he might not be able to attend the coronation, leaving him with a missed opportunity for something truly memorable and impressive.
He's invited a variety of artists to take part in his big show, including Harry Styles and Lionel Richie. Additionally, he commissioned twelve new music pieces as an extra special treat for this momentous milestone.
Though these performers are all major names in their own right, they're not the only ones with a coronation concert scheduled. The list of other artists is growing daily and this event is expected to draw thousands of attendees and an array of celebrities.
According to UK newspaper The Mail on Sunday, two British royal family icons - Adele and Ed Sheeran - have declined their invitation to perform at King Charles III's coronation concert due to being too busy, according to reports.
One source involved with the project revealed: "The King has identified several artists he would like to perform at his concert, including Adele and Ed. He was eager that they be included on that list."
Sheeran, 32, has a gig in Texas the day before the event which may make it difficult for him to travel there and perform. But he has previously used private jets for travels to the US, so insiders say he could still make the nine-hour journey in time for his Windsor show.
The 'Shape of You' singer has achieved massive success since the release of his debut album, +, in 2011. Additionally, he's collaborated with major acts such as Bring Me The Horizon and Cradle Of Filth.
He released his second album, x, in 2014 and followed it up with a fourth one, /, released in 2017. Both albums' first singles 'Shape of You' and 'Perfect' both reached number one in the US charts.
Sheeran has been criticised for his 'fake' voice, although he often performs to an audience of one or a few hundred in London. He is known for his witty and sarcastic lyrics as well as using his falsetto voice to sing about love, loss and loneliness.
However, the royals hoped Sheeran would bring a sense of fun and joy to the event. He has been an enormous fan of the royals ever since he witnessed Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials at Westminster Abbey.
Sheeran's performances at the coronation are expected to be broadcasted by the BBC and thousands of tickets will be available to buy for fans. Lionel Richie, Victoria Beckham and Harry Styles may also perform at this historic occasion; however, no official confirmation has yet been given.
No one knows the pain of having a sibling. From disagreements with close relatives to fights over major life decisions, sibling tensions can be particularly volatile.
Rumors swirled a few months back about an impending feud between Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William. The brothers allegedly had an argument over Meghan Markle around Christmas 2018, during which Harry was accused of failing to include her in the royal family.
In an interview with Good Morning America, the Duke of Sussex lamented their mother's heartbreak over their conflicts and how she had "really struggled" to cope. Additionally, in another interview with CBS' Anderson Cooper, he claimed certain members of his family and those working for them are complicit in his and William's disdain for British media outlets.
According to The Mail on Sunday, King Philip wanted Adele and Ed Sheeran to perform at his Coronation concert scheduled for May 7, but both artists declined the invitation. The concert will take place at Windsor Castle and be broadcast live by BBC2.
Adele and Sheeran have both been kept busy by their Las Vegas residency shows, with organisers reporting they had been told they wouldn't have time for public concerts after March 25 when their residency concludes.
Meanwhile, UK tabloids are reporting that Lionel Richie and Harry Styles may be in contention for the gig. Unfortunately, these rumours seem to spread quickly, with no definitive confirmation from anyone yet.
William is believed to be frustrated that Harry doesn't do enough for him in the royal family. Indeed, a new memoir published in Spain by the Duke of Sussex may provide further insight into their rift.
The book Spare, written by Harry Argento and released days early in Spain, contains an intimate account of the Duke's turbulent relationship with his brother William. Harry recounts how they had an argument over Meghan in which William physically knocked Harry to the floor due to lack of understanding on his part.
Adele and Ed Sheeran have reportedly declined the royal invitation to perform at King Charles III's Coronation due to their 'busy' schedules.
King Charles is expected to be crowned on May 7 at Westminster Abbey, followed by a celebratory concert at Windsor Castle. Despite their declined royal invitations, there has been no official announcement from either star regarding their performance plans after March 25.
King Hassan had originally proposed Sheeran and Adele as performers for his coronation ceremony; however, both singers have since declined due to being booked with other engagements after March 25.
Sheeran's excuse is that he must perform at a show in Texas, USA on the same day as his coronation concert. This means he'll need to travel across the Atlantic by plane for nine hours - an excessively long time for any tour and something Sheeran prefers not to do.
Sheeran ultimately decided against performing at the coronation due to his dislike of being part of such a formal event and believing it to be unfair to the royal family.
Sheeran expressed his reluctance to be a celebrity at a royal event, potentially complicating future collaborations with them. Although he is an admirer of the royal family, Sheeran does not wish to become one simultaneously.
Sheeran expresses his displeasure with the royal family's treatment of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, believing they should be more inclusive and not discriminate against anyone. He would like to see more diversity within the royal family; furthermore, Sheeran believes it would not be fair for them to discriminate based on race or gender.
