Take That to sing at King Charles’s coronation minus Robbie after big names turned down gig
Take That would make a special appearance at the King Charles Concert at Windsor Castle in May, although a famous face of the band, Robbie Williams, is not expected to join them. The rumor comes after Adele, Ed Sheeran and the Spice Girls all reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform.
Insiders say Gary Barlow is “extremely keen to make it work” as details are hammered out behind the scenes.
A source, published in the Daily Mail, said: “Gary has led the charge and things are being moved for this to happen.
“We asked them a few weeks ago and they jumped at the chance.”
The source continued that even though the band members feel very honored, it was difficult to get organized on such short notice.

“The organisers’ dream would be for Robbie Williams to join them – it would be so special and quite a while, but it’s been hard to make it work.”
The source added: “It will be a big boost for the king and even for viewers at home.”
Gary has a well-documented love of royal events and performed at the late Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee event in 2012.
Not only did he perform at the star-studded concert at Buckingham Palace, alongside Cheryl Tweedy, but he even wrote a song for the occasion with Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber.
Gary, who has met the Queen face to face on several occasions, also received an OBE for his services to music.
Speaking fondly of his memories of the royal matriarch, he once said that although her title was very “intimidating”, she herself was not and that she did everything she could to make him feel comfortable.
Gary has also made several appearances at the annual Royal Variety Performance in the past.
The Royal Family has suffered a few setbacks recently, including public friction caused by the publication of Prince Harry’s telltale memoir, Spare.
Yet to add to their conflicts, it was reported that the BBC had struggled to find great talent for the show.
Fortunately, the highly anticipated performance of Take That should restore the balance in one of the greatest pop extravaganzas in British history.
