Who was sitting next to King Charles at the coronation concert?


King Charles III’s coronation was celebrated with an all-star concert last night.

Performances by stars including Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Take That were a hit with the some 20,000 guests at Windsor Castle.

Fans saw The King, Queen and other Royal Family members bopping along to the hits, with eight-year-old Princess Charlotte stealing the show.

Even The Muppets puppets Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog showed up, giving The King a laugh – dubbing him ‘Charlesy Warlesy’ and even trying to sneak into the royal box.

So, who was sat next to Charles at the concert?

In the royal box, The King was (of course) joined by his wife and consort Queen Camilla.

On his other side was Patricia Janet Scotland, Baroness Scotland of Asthal.

Baroness Scotland is the sixth Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, and the first woman to hold the position.

The Dominican-born, London-raised lawyer and diplomat joined the House of Lords in 1997, has been a minister in government, and in 2007 was the Attorney General.

Her role as Secretary-General is, essentially, to promote the Commonwealth, and to manage the Commonwealth Secretariat – an organisation within it which ‘supports member countries to achieve the Commonwealth’s aims’, as per its website.
