Plans are in full swing for King Charles' Coronation coming up in less than three months, and he had some suggestions, particularly about the singers set to perform at the ceremony.

Unsurprisingly, the monarch placed two prominent music stars, Adele and Ed Sheeran, at the top of his list, given their nativity. However, both refused to perform at the event, much to the disappointment of the Royal family.

King Charles' Coronation is set to hold on May 6, accompanied by a concert the following day, which was supposed to include the big names in the music industry, Adele and Ed Sheeran.

A source revealed that "the King has suggested a number of people he would like to perform, and Adele and Ed were on that list. He was very keen that they were part of the concert."

Sadly, both stars turned down the invitation, with Sheeran giving a justifiable reason while Adele declined "without explanation." According to Marie Claire, the "Shivers" vocalist will be performing in Texas the day before the Coronation concert, making it challenging to slot everything in.

On the other hand, Adele appears not to have any conflicting events scheduled for May 7, and she is not booked for public performances after March 25.

The informant shared, "There is a team set up to get the talent signed up, so they approached the two of them but got replies saying they were unavailable. They are titans of the showbiz industry. And are quintessentially British but also known across the globe. It's such a shame."

As for other performers at the Coronation concert, there has been no confirmation, except that Lionel Richie and the Spice Girls may have a show. Assumptions have also surfaced about a Harry Styles performance.

Additionally, regarding the invitees, there is still no RSVP from Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, as The Daily Mail reports that the duo is still unsure. Harry reportedly wants to meet with his father and brother, Prince William, before the ceremony. Thankfully, the Sussexes still have more than a month to conclude, as RSVPs are expected by April beginning.

About Spice Girls' Possible Performance At The Coronation

While fans may be let down by Adele and Sheeran's absence from the occasion, they will likely see the Spice Girls reunite and perform for the first time in over a decade. The women's group who significantly influenced the world with their music during the nineties had their last performance as a group during the 2012 Olympic closing ceremony.

As The Blast reported, Royal organizers were reportedly keen on including the group as the "star signing" for the Coronation concert, and the females are "seriously pondering" being featured.

Melanie Brown' Mel B,' Melanie Chrisholm' Mel C,' Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, and Victoria Beckham, who all make up the band, will mark a huge milestone with their show because "the Coronation is as special as The Olympics." 

Meanwhile, Mel B and Mel C supposedly intend to bring the plan to reality by trying to convince their fellow stars to participate. Not long before, Mel C revealed that the group was not pleased with not performing at the late Queen's Platinum Jubilee Concert last June, considering their involvement with "families and other commitments and responsibilities."

In a more recent interview, Mel B hinted that the Coronation concert will feature all five OG members, a project they were "very excited about."

The King Of The United Kingdom Wants His Second Son Back In The Family Ahead Of Coronation

Prince Harry's likely absence from the King's upcoming coronation appears to be troubling the 74-year-old as he wants him "back in the family," possibly before the ceremony.

Per reports, an informant revealed, "it is such a momentous occasion for Charles, and he would want his son to be at the coronation to witness it. He would like to have Harry back in the family."

Fans would recall Harry's controversial book "Spare," released earlier this year, detailed scandalizing elements about the Royals. This reportedly prompted the King to want to sort out the family troubles.

The Royal source believes that if everything is not ironed out between Charles and Harry, it would "always be part of the King's reign" in addition to his reputation as a "distant parent."
