Germany’s Eurovision rep welcome King Charles and Camilla on state visit

King Charles shake hands with members of Lord of the Lost, Germany's Eurovision 2023 rep

It looks like King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla made quite the entrance during their first state visit to Germany. The royal couple was greeted by none other than Lord Of The Lost, the German Eurovision metal band.

King Charles shake hands with Lord of the Lost, Germany’s representative to Eurovision 2023

These goth metallers will be representing Germany in this year’s Eurovision, and they couldn’t resist putting on a show for the royals.

The reception was held at the Schuppen 52 event in Hamburg, where various British and German musicians performed. But let’s be real, the highlight was Lord Of The Lost.

Their frontman, Chris ‘The Lord’ Harms, teased the meeting earlier that day with an Instagram post wearing a skin-tight pink-and-gold bodysuit and knee-high gold boots, holding a vinyl record. I mean, talk about making an impression!

Lord Of The Lost will be entering Eurovision with their song ‘Blood And Glitter’. You should definitely check it out if you haven’t already.

The contest will take place at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool from May 9-13, and it’s going to be a blast. The UK is being represented by Mae Muller with ‘I Wrote A Song’, and we’re all hoping for a repeat of Sam Ryder’s second place success from last year’s contest.

In other news, Eurovision will be screened in UK cinemas this year for the first time ever! But if you’re looking to attend the grand final in person, you might be out of luck. Tickets sold out in just 36 minutes!

But don’t worry, there are plenty of Eurovision activities and parties happening around Liverpool on the night.

The city is even hosting a cultural festival and a Eurovision fan zone that can hold 25,000 people at the Pier Head waterfront area.

And to top it all off, 3,000 tickets will be made available for displaced Ukrainians living in the UK to mark Kalush Orchestra’s victory at last year’s event.

But before we get too excited about Eurovision, let’s not forget that the M&S Bank Arena was criticised earlier this week for having “unacceptable” congestion at a gig.

Let’s hope they sort out any issues before the big event in May!
