Craig David says there was a lot of tension at Harry and Meghans final royal outing

Craig David has said there was ‘a lot of tension’ when he performed at the 2020 Commonwealth Service – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s final event as senior royals.

Discussing the matter on The Jonathan Ross Show, which will air this weekend, Craig explained: “I performed at Westminster Cathedral. [There was] a lot of tension going on at that period of time."

“Harry and Meghan were there. I went to sing for the Commonwealth celebrations,” he continued.

Craig went on to describe what it was like walking as part of the procession in front of all the Royals, including the Queen.

“The moment [the Queen] looked up and that moment of acknowledgement … the full vibes. Everyone in the family,” he recalled.

“I always talk about how music is healing and a form of therapy. I could feel it cut through. There was a part where Harry looked up, Meghan looked up, I felt it really landed in their hearts.

“It felt like that was the one moment where I was able to witness that."

Michelle Keegan is also starring on this weekend’s The Jonathan Ross Show, and she revealedthe real reason why she’s always turned down offers to go on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Our Girl actor said: “I have a few times [been asked]. But for me, it’s the live audience… it’s a skill. It takes a lot of dedication and skill.

"He [husband Mark Wright] did it like five years ago. It’s the music before it happens and the audience is really quiet and the lights come on. My heart was in my mouth for him. I couldn’t be on the dance floor, too scared, too nervous."

Craig and Michelle are joined by Sir Elton John, Rob Brydon, Judi Love and MNEK during the star-studded programme.

Judi, who recently starred on Strictly herself, echoed Michelle’s sentiments and said how scary the live performances can be.

“Dancing live you could trip, you could forget a step, it’s so huge. It’s when they say ‘dancing to’ that’s the bit!,” she said.

“Physically it’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It makes me think more about health and finding something you really enjoy. Dancing for a health area for me is something I want to embrace more."

The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday on ITV at 10.30pm. For updates on all your favourite celebs, sign up to our daily newsletter here.
