Taylor Swift reportedly rejected chance to perform at King Charles coronation

Popstar Taylor Swift reportedly turned down the chance to perform at King Charles III’s coronation.

According to author Omid Scobie, the 33-year-old singer was among a long list of performers to turn down a chance to perform for the newly-crowned monarch. Eventually Katy Perry headlined the show at Windsor Castle, claims Scobie’s new book Endgame.

Scobie writes: “Finding entertainment for his coronation concert at Windsor Castle proved a challenge for the organizers. The list of acts who declined the invitation to perform was long and included Sir Elton John, Harry Styles, the Spice Girls, Adele, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.”

The final line-up for the new king ended up including Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Andrea Bocelli, and Take That, reports The Mirror. The book contrasted that list with those who played the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

The Jubilee concert included Queen featuring Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Sir Rod Stewart, Diana Ross and Sir Elton who was “more than happy to clear his schedule for Her Majesty,” according to Scobie.

Taylor has recently announed a re-released of an extended version of her Eras Tour concert film. She is one of many topics touched upon in Scobie’s new book.

The journalist and writer also shares information about Prince Harry and his relationship with the Royal Family. He claims King Charles was reportedly extremely unhappy after Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, released a tell-all documentary series on Netflix.

The series, Harry & Meghan, was made up of six episodes and produced by the Duke and Duchess’ production company Archewell Productions. Harry and Meghan were not shy in sharing their explosive takes on the royal family, which they left in January 2020.

Scobie wrote in his book that after the show aired: “At the Palace, heads were in hands and migraines were brewing.” He also mentioned that a royal aide said that Charles called his son a “fool” for releasing the documentary series.
