Coronation concert at Windsor Castle: These celebrities are there

The Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle takes place on Sunday evening (May 7th), the day after the coronation of King Charles III. (74) in Westminster Abbey. Actor Hugh Bonneville (59) is the host of the coronation concert. "British style, come rain or shine, it's going to be a night to remember," he said in advance, according to bbc.com. Bonneville, made famous by the Downton Abbey series and the Paddington films, will welcome numerous stars on stage.

On the one hand, Katy Perry (38), Lionel Richie (73) and Take That will perform. Nicole Scherzinger (44), Olly Murs (38), Paloma Faith (41) and Andrea Bocelli (64) will also perform at the Windsor Castle event.

Hollywood stars Tom Cruise, 60, and Dame Joan Collins, 89, as well as British adventurer Bear Grylls, 48, and musician Sir Tom Jones, 82, will star in pre-recorded sketches. Other stars who will play a role on the evening include "Sex Education" star Ncuti Gatwa (30), "Strictly Come Dancing" professional Oti Mabuse (32), guitarist Steve Winwood (74), Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor (37) and Winnie the Pooh.

It is also expected that Prince William (40) will take the stage, as an Instagram post from Sunday afternoon suggests: "Final preparations for today's coronation concert," says the 12-second teaser clip on the official account of the Prince and Princess of Wales was posted. In it, a producer's voice is heard saying, "Ok, Prince of Wales, it's time for your rehearsal." Then William steps onto a stage where a microphone is waiting for him.

20,000 spectators are expected at the show. The concert will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC Radio 2 from 8pm local time (9pm Central European Time). The broadcaster had also previously stated that the stage had been designed with the vision of taking the historical location and the occasion into account. The catwalk stage will frame the east side of Windsor Castle and will have multiple levels for the 70-piece orchestra and band. "When darkness falls behind the castle, its facade is brought to life with projections and lights," the BBC said.
