Royal fans massively confused at Dynamo getting an invite to the King's coronation
| Last updated
So the day has finally arrived: Charlie's about to be officially crowned our king.
Thousands of royalists have descended on London to bask in the reflected glory of our sovereign and witness a piece of history.
But as well as the regular hoi polloi, a whole host of celebs and stars have also managed to bag themselves a ticket to the actual gig.
So far, we've seen everyone's favourite double act, Ant and Dec, take their seats at Westminster Abbey, along with Lionel Ritchie, Katy Perry, and Nick Cave.
However, one name on the guest list that no one expected to see was Dynamo. Yes, the magician.
And it's really thrown people off.
One viewer joked: "Heavy that Charles doesn’t have enough mates so had to invite Kelly Jones and Dynamo to his coronation.
"These are the faces of two men that feel very much out of their depth."
Another commented: "I can’t believe Huw Edwards didn’t recognise the world’s greatest magician Dynamo smh."
"How has Dynamo ended up at the #Coronation?" asked a third.
While another added: "Why is Dynamo the magician at the coronation ?? they really had to invite anyone huh."
Well, despite people being fairly disparaging of the TV trickster, there is actually a very good reason for him being invited to the big bash.
It turns out that he's an ambassador for the Prince's Trust, which helped him in the early days of his career.
Speaking previously about his relationship with the king's charity, Dynamo, real name Steven Frayne, said: "My Grandad inspired me to be a magician and I was desperate to make him proud. That's when I turned to The Prince's Trust.
"They gave me advice, inspiration and a small cash grant to help me build a career. The rest, as they say, is history.
"My story is a bit unusual, but when I said I wanted to be a magician they didn't laugh in my face as so many others had done, they gave me the help I needed.
"Today I'm an Ambassador for The Trust and I've seen first-hand the difference they make to young people's lives. They don't judge, they listen.
"Their programmes help unemployed young people to overcome their issues and barriers - everything from stress and depression to abuse and homelessness.
"Above all, they help them to get a job, to work towards a future for themselves and their families."
