Recently, Snoop Dogg simply told the Sun: “I’m down to perform at the coronation. Make it happen.”
Now, Snoop Dogg has had a bit of a spotted past with the UK. Back in 2006, he was arrested for an altercation at Heathrow Airport in London, and was banned from the country until the charges were dropped soon after. Along with that, back in 1994, he faced murder charges he was later acquitted of, per Billboard. But here’s the thing: Snoop Dogg always had at least one major Royal supporter by his side: the late Queen Elizabeth II!

“When they tried to kick me out of England, the Queen made a comment that her grandbabies loved Snoop Doggy Dogg, and he had done no wrong in Britain, so she gave me permission to be here,” he said in 2015 to The Guardian. “Those grandbabies grew up to be Prince William and Harry, so I had influence on them, and they had influence on their grandmother, which enabled me to get into this beautiful country. They love my music, and it is what it is. There’s a mutual love and respect.”
So not only does Snoop Dogg reportedly have the seal of approval from the late monarch, but from the Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex!
Acts like Elsewhere, Take That, and sisters Kylie and Dannii Minogue are reportedly already set to perform for the coronation, and fans are seriously hoping a spot opens up for the Grammy-nominated rapper.
Charles’ coronation has taken quite a few obstacles, however, it will be taking place on May 6.
