There's a hilarious reason why Katy Perry might be feeling a little sheepish at King Charles' Coronation Concert in Windsor. The pop star has made some flirty comments about Prince Harry in the past, and as fate would have it, they will both be in attendance at the same event. It's almost like the set-up for a comedy movie!

Let's take a trip down memory lane to 2012, when Katy made the infamous comments about Harry during an episode of The Graham Norton Show. When Graham mentioned that Harry had asked for Katy to join the guest list "by name" for the Queen's Jubilee, Katy responded with a slightly suggestive "Prince Harry? He’s a hot ginger, isn’t he?" We're not going to lie, it's a pretty accurate description. But things took a turn when Graham mentioned that pop star Cheryl had been chatting with Harry at the Jubilee Concert after-party. Katy's response was classic: "Oh, you and Prince Harry? Get off my man!"

Cut to present day, and Katy is set to perform at the Coronation Concert alongside Take That and Lionel Richie. And it just so happens that Harry will also be in attendance. We can already imagine the awkward meet and greet. Katy trying to play it cool with Harry, but secretly wishing she was anywhere else but there. Harry looking at Katy like she's lost her marbles. It's just too good. However, we don't want to make too much of a mountain out of a molehill. Katy has nothing to worry about, as she's already got a Brit of her own. She's been dating Orlando Bloom since 2016 and they share a daughter, Daisy. Plus, Orlando is good friends with Harry! In fact, he played Harry in the HBO Max series, The Prince, where he poked fun at the royal family in a light-hearted (but still slightly scandalous) way.

At the end of the day, we're just excited to see Katy put on a show at such an important event. It's guaranteed to be a night to remember with all of the biggest names in entertainment in attendance. And who knows, maybe Katy and Harry will have a good laugh about her comments from 2012. After all, who wouldn't be flattered by being called a "hot ginger"?
