King of Great Britain was entrusted with an "important" mission at Eurovision: why Charles III will come to Liverpool
King Charles III of the United Kingdom will arrive in Liverpool to carry out an "important" mission before the opening of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. The monarch has been entrusted with switching on the lights on the stage.
Although the task seems simple, switching on the lights will mean that the contest is fully prepared to welcome guests. This was reported on the BBC website (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).
His Majesty's intentions were announced at Buckingham Palace. The visit will take place next Wednesday, April 26. The King will be accompanied by his wife, Queen Consort Camilla.
In Liverpool, they will visit the M&S Bank Arena, where the competition will take place. There, the couple will meet with the organisers, celebrity hosts and May Mueller, a contestant from the UK.
Ukrainian singer Yulia Sanina will also have the opportunity to talk to the royal couple.
Switching on the lights is a symbolic mission of Charles III. On April 26, the whole world will be able to see the final result of the stage design, where the best vocalists from each participating country will perform.
Ukraine will be represented by TVORCHI, who have recently presented an updated version of the song they will be performing in Liverpool. The duo listened to the advice and comments from Ukrainians, so the track has undergone changes.
The stars will go to the UK with the English-language song Heart of Steel, written under the influence of the war. According to the performers, they were inspired to create the song by the unbreakable spirit of Azovstal's defenders. The Ukrainians will automatically qualify for the final on May 13 as the winning country.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported what Ukrainian stars will perform at the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. Tina Karol, Verka Serdyuchka and other stars of last year's shows will appear on stage.
