Ant and Dec have been spotted at King Charles’ coronation – and they’ve got a very good reason for being there.
Being the first royal coronation we've had since 1953, there have been various additions to the ceremony, from a female clergy to religious leaders of other faiths taking part.
Another ‘brand new’ feature of the proceedings was the invitation for members of the public to swear their allegiance to the new King.
Of course, many people were less excited about all that, and more about whether or not a modern Coronation would involve any celeb action – with everyone from David and Victoria Beckham to Bear Grylls rumoured to be on the invite list.
It turns out the pair had very good reason to be there, having become Goodwill Ambassadors for The Prince’s Trust - a global network of charities founded by Charles.
They've recently been working hard with the charity to make the media industry more accessible for young people, having set up a ‘Making it in the Media’ programme.
Designed to ‘help the next generation develop skills for the media industry and find jobs and training opportunities’, the programme gives young people the opportunity to improve their self-confidence and practical skills, while also gaining industry knowledge from media experts.
Commenting on the project, Ant said: “Our Making it in Media course with The Prince’s Trust is a real passion project for us and something we’ve wanted to work on for a long time.
“There are so many roles in TV and media that young people may have never considered as a career. We want to help young people find out more about the industry.”
Dec added: “Starting out in the world of work can be challenging at the best of times, but right now it is harder than ever for young people. We hope this course offers some inspiration, practical skills and experience that young people can take with them into the workplace.
“We’re incredibly proud to be partnering with The Prince’s Trust on this and we hope we can help make a difference to some young people’s lives.”
Other Coronation guests linked to the Prince's Trust also include singers Lionel Richie, Kelly Jones and the magician Dynamo.
However, it was Ant and Dec who truly stole the show, 'giggling' away during the ceremony, so much so one viewer even questioned whether they were 'on shrooms'.
Even when the duo aren't presenting Britain's Got Talent, they're still leaving the British public in stitches.
