Coronation Concert live stream: Watch as celebrities arrive for show

Watch live: Guests arrive for coronation concert at Windsor Castle

The Coronation Concert will take place tonight (Sunday May 7) in the grounds of Windsor Castle to celebrate the Coronation of Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort.

The star-studded list of performers will see appearances by Take That, Nigerian singer-songwriter Tiwa Savage and pianist Lang Lang – with childhood icon Winnie the Pooh also featuring in the festivities.

However, some celebrities – including Tom Cruise, Dame Joan Collins, Bear Grylls and Tom Jones – will only appear via video message as they will not be able to make the concert.

Via the live stream, fans will be able to spot Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, Take That, Paloma Faith, Olly Murs, Steve Winwood, and Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls arriving in all their finery before performing for the King.

The event begins at 8pm on Sunday and will be hosted by Paddington bear and Downton Abbey actor Hugh Bonneville on a stage that is expected to take the shape of the Union Flag.

Yesterday’s Coronation was attended by celebrities, royalty, world leaders and volunteers who witnessed King Charles and Queen Camilla being crowned in a historical ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

Actress Emma Thompson was one of the first A-listers to arrive at the Central London site alongside her husband Greg Wise.

QI star Stephen Fry, 65, was also among the first guests to arrive at the Abbey this morning, wearing a black suit and cream waistcoat paired with pale pink tie.

Other celebs invited yesterday included Dame Joanna Lumley, Jay Blades, Ant and Dec, and Dynamo.

The Coronation Concert will see a 74 piece world-class classical orchestra perform and also feature a selection of spoken word sequences delivered by stars of stage and screen.

Former EastEnders star and Strictly Come Dancing winner Rose Ayling-Ellis has assisted in mentoring a unique performance for the concert featuring an all-deaf group that uses British Sign Language (BSL) to sing.

One star set to miss out on the festivities is Zoe Ball, who has taken to Twitter today to reveal she’s had to pull out of covering the Coronation Concert for BBC Radio 2 today, after being struck down with sickness, as Scott Mills and Dermot O’Leary will front the show instead.

Singer Freya Ridings also announced that she had dropped out of tonight’s event, as she is “unwell”, and will be replaced by Zak Abel.

In a statement, the BBC said: “The BBC has announced that British singer-songwriter Zak Abel is stepping in to perform at Sunday’s Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle, replacing Freya Ridings, who has had to pull out, due to being unwell and therefore unable to perform.

“Having been diagnosed with otosclerosis, overgrowth and brittleness of the stapes bone in the ear, which can lead to hearing loss, when he was just 21, Zak has overcome a number of hurdles in order to achieve success in the competitive world of music, which has led him to the opportunity to perform at this once in a lifetime event.”
