Myleene Klass has cleared up all confusion surrounding the mystery of one moustached guest at King Charles III’s coronation.
Sir Karl Jenkins’ appearance at the May 6 ceremony at Westminster Abbey left social media users convinced that either Ant and Dec had dressed up for an epic Saturday Night Takeaway prank or that, even more bizarrely, Meghan Markle had snuck in wearing a disguise.
But thankfully, Myleene was able to reveal Sir Karl’s identity as the world-famous composer whose best-known works include Adiemus and Palladio.
Explaining all in a very handy TikTok video, the former Hear’Say singer, 45, pointed at a picture of the legendary musician, 79, while saying: ‘A lot of people are wondering who this really is.
‘Not only does he have one of the finest moustaches I’ve ever seen this century, but he also wrote this,’ she continued as Adiemus played out with Benedictus The Armed Man following.
Myleene then dropped a bombshell – Sir Karl even wrote one of her tracks, Allegretto, which featured on her 2003 album, Moving On.
She went on to describe Sir Karl as ‘one of the greatest living composers around today’ and explained that he is ‘so special’ that he was ‘personally commissioned by King Charles himself to write music for his coronation’.
Sir Karl was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2005 New Year Honours and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2010 Birthday Honours.
In 2015 he was made a Knight Bachelor.
