Who is playing at King Charles III’s coronation and who refused to attend

According to reports, artists including Ed Sheeran, Adele and Robbie Williams all declined requests to perform at the King's Coronation Concert.

On Sunday, May 7, a sizable coronation concert will be held at Windsor Castle to commemorate King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla’s accession to the throne.

A number of well-known musical artists from the past and present will perform at the event, which will commemorate a significant historical period.

The late queen Queen Elizabeth staged the final significant royal celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee in June of last year, which featured performances from singers such Rod Stewart, Queen + Adam Lambert, Diana Ross and Elton John.

Olly Murs is also said to be performing at the Coronation Concert, however the singer’s representatives have not made any official statements on this.

King Charles III will be crowned in May, and the singer said it would be a “honour” to perform.

The 38-year-old hitmaker also disclosed that, should he be chosen to play that day, he has two songs prepared for the ceremony.

The former X Factor contestant was asked about singing at the royal party during an interview on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday, and Olly couldn’t help but smile as he discussed the idea.

Is the Sweet Darlin’ hitmaker scheduled to appear for the coronation of the King, Susanna Reid enquired? He responded, “I’m here if needed.”

“I’m on tour, the dates work,” Olly continued, “so if the royals need me, I’m around. Lots of artists would be honoured to be singing, so it would be amazing.”
