Royal fans have been left shocked after three members of Take That reunited live on stage to celebrate King Charles III’s coronation.

In the grounds of Windsor Castle this evening (7 May), Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald took to the stage as Take That for the first time in almost four years.

The boyband also performed at Charles's coronation concert alongside the likes of Katy Perry, Andrea Bocelli and Lionel Richie.

Take That took to the stage in front of an audience of 20,000 on the East Lawn of Windsor Castle, and their phenomenal performance was broadcasted live on the BBC.

Prior to the gig, the three active members of Take That - Barlow, Owen and Donald - said: "This will be our first live show since the Odyssey Tour, four years ago in 2019, and what a stage to come back on!

"A huge live band and orchestra, a choir, military drummers, the backdrop of Windsor Castle and the celebration of a new King. We can’t wait."

Fans of the band hoping for Robbie Williams and Jason Orange to take to the stage and join their former bandmates for the coronation concert were sorely disappointed.

It would have been Take That's first proper reunion for 12 years but alas it was not to be, though that hasn't stopped people from hopping on social media to wonder why.

One said the concert had built up to 'getting three fifths of Take That to bust out a couple of hits', while many were 'hoping that Robbie Williams was going to get on stage'.

Someone else asked 'when are Take That going to get together properly' as they thought it would lead to 'the tour of all tours' which would 'make half the country ecstatic'.

Others thought it an injustice that Take That got to perform three songs while Katy Perry, who rocked up to the coronation concert dressed as a toffee penny, only got to make it through two.

Someone else joked that 'Take That was so long ago these three lads could be anybody & we wouldn't question it'.

While Katy Perry and Take That closed the coronation concert it was opened by DJ Pete Tong and his Ibiza classics playlist, before Olly Murs took to the stage in what ended up being a divisive performance.

Plenty of acts performed at the concert but one of the biggest moments of the night was when Queen Camilla checked her watch in the middle of Lionel Richie's set, which had people furious.
