Katy Perry took to social media to share her reaction after a video of the music star seemingly having trouble finding her seat was one of the moments to go viral from the coronation service for King Charles III and Queen consort Camilla.
At the event that took place at Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday, Perry was one of the high-profile attendees, along with Judi Dench, Emma Thompson, Maggie Smith and Lionel Richie. Footage of Perry seemingly chasing for her assigned seat before the start of proceedings led to the american idol judges name trending on twitter.
Turns out to be a good sport about the attention, Perry tweeted later that day, “don’t worry guys, I found my seat.” She and Richie will perform at a coronation concert on Sunday.
The star, who wore a lavender Vivienne Westwood suit and hat for the occasion, also took to Instagram to share her appreciation for being part of the high-profile ceremony. In her post, which included photos and videos from the day, she explained that she was invited by King Charles III on behalf of the British Asian Trust’s Children Protection Fund, an organization Perry says she has supported for three years.
“It was such an honor to see history being made today at the coronation of King Charles III!” Perry wrote in the caption. “Thank you @viviennewestwood for making me feel so wonderful in lavender.”
Another high-profile guest was Prince Harry, Charles’ son, and the pair have been the subject of reported tension over the years. The Duke of Sussex had no formal role during the coronation service and was not seated with his family. Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, stayed home in Southern California with their children.
