King Charles III and Queen Camilla
The royal couple can be seen on “American Idol”.
Along with Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, the British royal couple have recorded an amusing video for “American Idol”.
King Charles III (74) and Queen Camilla (74) made a surprise appearance on US television on Sunday evening (May 7). Together with Katy Perry (38) and Lionel Richie (73) they were seen in a clip for the talent show “American Idol”.
Perry and Richie are ‘American Idol’ judges
The two singers usually sit on the jury for the US version of “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” on Sundays. But on May 7th they had other commitments and performed at the Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle. In a taped clip, however, they were overlaid on the show. Apparently they are in the castle – and while they are talking to the camera, the royal couple suddenly appears.
“I just wanted to check how long you will be using this room?” the new British king asks the US stars. He then thanks Richie for attending and appearing at the coronation. “Thank you for your brilliant performance and it was great.” Meanwhile, Camilla and Katy Perry exchange a few words. Finally, Charles invites the two of them to the party “right next door”. As “Variety” reportsLionel Richie is said to have arranged the surprise appearance of the royals thanks to his good relationship with Charles.
The one and a half minute video released “American Idol” on Youtube and on Instagram under the title “A Royal Surprise”.
The Queen also made funny clips
With his show act, Charles follows his mother’s example. Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) surprised her people when she starred in a clip with then James Bond actor Daniel Craig (55) at the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. She greeted her 70th jubilee in the summer of 2022 with an amusing video in which she meets Paddington Bear for tea time at Buckingham Palace.
