Is Sofia Richie Going to King Charles's Coronation?

Sofia Richie and her new husband, Elliot Grainge, are back from the honeymoon—just in time for King Charles's coronation. Though they didn't make it to the Met Gala on Monday, Sofia posted on Instagram that they are now in London.

"Back in London for Lionel Richie," she wrote, tagging her dad and adding an emoji of a man wearing a crown.

Could Sofia be attending the coronation? Probably not, but if we had to guess based on her Instagram story, she will be at the coronation concert—featuring her dad, Lionel Richie.

Lionel is one of the big stars headlining King Charles's coronation concert on Sunday at Windsor Castle. "To share the stage with the other performers at The Coronation Concert is a once-in-a-lifetime event and it will be an honor and a celebration," he said in a statement when his participation was announced. Other performers include Katy Perry, Tiwa Savage, Olly Murs, Andrea Bocelli and more.

In addition, Lionel will be one of the guests in Westminster Abbey as part of the congregation. Ahead of the big weekend, Lionel and his wife Lisa Parigi attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace yesterday. "I'm really trying to be, 'This is a calm moment for me.' I'm so excited," he told SkyNews. "I'm like a kid at Christmas time!" Lionel added, "I've known His Majesty now for a couple of years. And so, to celebrate this with him and the Queen is just going to be so much fun."

If you want to watch the Coronation Concert (and hopefully spot Sofia in the crowds!), it begins at 7 p.m. local time (2 p.m. eastern / 11 a.m. pacific).
