A third person uploaded a photo of the inside of Westminster Abbey with a giant hat covering a majority of the view, with the caption, "POV; You’re sat behind Katy Perry and her big pink hat."

Meanwhile, a user pointed out the comedic value of her choice of dress, saying, "Katy Perry and her comically large hat really set the tone for how unserious this whole thing is. Saw Lionel Richie taking selfies with fans in the Abbey too lol."

While some people hated on the American Idol judge, loyal fans praised her for the iconic look.

"Katy Perry eating up Charles at his own coronation," someone penned, while another user exclaimed, "Katy Perry looking for her throne because she's the real Queen of England!"

"Katy Perry has dethroned King Charles and has abolished the British Monarchy," a third fan joked.

Following the announcement of her commitment to the performance, Perry released a statement.

"I am excited to be performing at the Coronation Concert, and helping to shine a further light on the British Asian Trust’s Children’s Protection Fund, whose work includes on-ground initiatives to fundraising, with the aim to find solutions to child trafficking," she said, referencing her ambassadorship for the British Asian Trust since 2020.

The charity, which Charles started, raises money to remedy poverty in South Asian countries.
