Katy Perry the new ambassador of Prince Charles British Asian Trust charity promises to sing to Prince Charles’ plants. 


To mark this announcement, Prince Charles hosted the American pop star at a black-tie reception and dinner at Banqueting House in London on Tuesday evening and upon arriving at the reception, Katy said, “hello again” and that she had heard that he talked to his plants. Charles laughed and replied: “I would prefer it if you sang to them.”


In attendance were the Duchess of Cornwall,  DJ and music producer Naughty Boy, comedian Russell Peters and broadcaster Nihal Arthanayake.


The American pop star wore a royal blue gown with semi-sheer sleeves, and took to the stage to deliver a speech after the announcement. She said: “I’m excited to be here because I’m a big fan of His Royal Highness and all the work that he has done and is continuing to do, especially in India for children. 

My work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador has taken me to many parts of the world and opened my eyes to the many vulnerabilities of children. India has long held a special place in my heart, and on my last visit, I was able to meet with The Prince of Wales and other leaders in Mumbai, and I was impressed by their strong plan – from on-ground initiatives to fundraising – that will aim to cut child trafficking in half.


 “That is why I am especially honoured to be named an ambassador for the British Asian Trust’s Children’s Protection Fund, and to help shine my light on the work that the British Asian Trust will be doing in South Asia, and to be a part of finding solutions to child trafficking. Children are vulnerable and innocent and have to be protected.”
“In my own personal experience, he has an incredibly kind soul – so kind that yes, sometimes he talks to his plants. And he asked me if I would sing to his plants.  And I will in the future. You have my word, sir.”


Katy who is a heroine for children’s rights through her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador displayed her long-term support to the organisation and cause upon learning about the work that the British Asian Trust is doing in the country.


There are believed to be 5.8 million children working in forced labour in India with tens of thousands thought to be working in hazardous workshops in Jaipur alone, producing goods including bangles, embroidery and other products, with many forced to work for up to 15 hours a day.


 Indian philanthropist Natasha Poonawalla also made a multimillion-pound pledge to the fund, while the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation will match everything raised up to £25m.
