Adjoa Andoh, star of Bridgerton, was one of the ITV commentators covering the King’s Coronation. During the show, he referred to the balcony of Buckingham Palace as being “terribly white.”

King Charles and Queen Camilla were formally crowned on Saturday, May 6, at Westminster Abbey, where celebrities like Katy Perry, Dame Emma Thompson, Ant McPartlin, and Declan Donnelly were present.

Adjoa, 60, rose to fame in recent years for her portrayal of revered doyenne Lady Agatha Danbury in the television series Bridgerton. She recently reprised the character for the prequel spin-off series Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, which is set in London during the Regency era.

As the world watched the grand, royal proceedings, the actress was commentating on the day alongside several other presenters, including I’m A Celebrity… South Africa star Myleene Klass, 45.

At one point, the Doctor Who and Casualty star compared the sight of the royal family waving at the crowds from the famous balcony at the Palace to the guests who were in attendance at Westminster Abbey.

‘There is a bit of me that we’ve gone from the rich diversity of the Abbey to a terribly white balcony. I was very struck by that,’ she said.

Adjoa continued: ‘I am also looking at those younger generations and thinking, “What are the nuances that they will inhabit as they grow?” Nuances that Charles has exhibited, from a teenager into early 20s young man.’

On Instagram, Adjoa celebrated being a part of the presenting team for ITV at the Coronation, sharing selfies of herself with Sathnam Sanghera and Sir Trevor McDonald.

She later posted a photo of herself with Myleene, stating: ‘What a privilege to be witness to such an historic event at such close quarters – very moving ♥️.’
