Prince Louis wasn’t the only person at King Charles III’s coronation on Saturday, May 6. It was hard for viewers to take their eyes off Katy Perry, especially when she couldn’t find her seat. The concerning moment was captured on film and quickly became a meme, but the “Fireworks” singer is taking her seat mix-up in progress.
“Don’t worry guys I got my seat,” Perry joked. a tweet after the event. In Video, the pop star can be seen trying to peek out into the aisle from under his huge hat, before biting his lip. She eventually walks over to a group of people, and asks if she is seated with them.
Many people are saying they’ve “been there” on social media at Perry’s “I don’t know where I’m sitting” moment. However, this was not the 38-year-old’s only casualty. Besides struggling to find her seat, the singer was also stuck outside Westminster Abbey after the ceremony. Luckily, she managed to heal herself before she collapsed, but Perry had no doubt that she’d be able to heal after their historic day.

However, the ‘Roar’ singer will not be able to rest for long. In addition to attending the coronation, Perry is also set to perform at Charles’ coronation ceremony on May 7 at Windsor Castle.
While Perry may seem like an unlikely choice to play a key role in the coronation, she has known Charles for some time. The “American Idol” judge has known Raja since he was appointed ambassador for The British Asian Trust in 2020. Prior to her coronation, Perry shared a statement about her performance via a BBC News press release.
“I’m excited to perform at the Coronation Concert and help shine a further light on the British Asian Trust’s Children Protection Fund, whose work includes grassroots fundraising initiatives aimed at finding solutions to child trafficking.” Said.
