In light of being crowned at Westminster Abbey and other events, King Charles and Queen Camilla had a very busy weekend.
Even after their celebrity-studded event on Sunday night, which featured performances by Olly Murs, Take That, and Nicole Scherzinger, they still had time to stop by American Idol for a quick “cheerio.”
Luke Bryan, Ed Sheeran, and Alanis Morissette were brought in to fill in for Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, who regularly serve as judges on the US singing competition. Katy Perry and Lionel Richie took a brief break from their roles to perform at the Coronation Concert.
While at Windsor Castle for the festivities, Katy, 38, and Lionel, 73, gave an update in a filmed message to their American Idol fans, before they were joined by King Charles, 74, and Queen Camilla, 75.

‘We’re trying to figure out what can we do to bring something different to the show?’ the All Night Long singer said, before appearing to become flustered as the royal couple came into view alongside his fellow judge.
The King joked about Lionel doing this ‘all night long’, before asking: ‘I just wanted to check how long you’ll be using this room for?’
The King and Queen praised the duo on their ‘brilliant’ and ‘fantastic’ performances at the concert, while the Queen Consort turned to the Teenage Dream singer to tell her: ‘Loved your frock.’
Meanwhile, after Katy asked if they were ‘making too much noise’, Lionel added: ‘We understand there’s a party.’
‘You’ve heard about that?’ King Charles responded, as the Endless Love singer responded: ‘Well you’re throwing the party right next door.’

He promised that as soon as he and Katy were finished, they’d be heading over to join the royals at the celebration.
As the Queen and King walked away, Katy looked in awe as she curtsied, before telling them: ‘God bless you.’
She was sweetly congratulated on her role in the Coronation Concert by her doting fiancé Orlando Bloom, who wrote: ‘Immensely proud of you my love. You always bring the light.’
Katy was the penultimate performer of the night, belting out her hits Roar and Firework, much to the delight of Princess Charlotte in particular.
Firework was dedicated to the King ‘and the work that we get to do together with the British Asian Trust and their Children’s Protection Fund’, the popstar said.
