Lulu shared a new TikTok video in which she was visibly moved as she recalled her attendance at the Queen's coronation. The 73-year-old singer recounted being requested to sing a song by her late father when she was four years old and being labeled "a star for the day."
She then went to Twitter to share her memory of the Queen’s coronation.
"I remember the Queens Coronation. I was four years old and there was a street party in my home Glasgow where I come from. And I remember being on my dads shoulders and singing a song for the Queens Coronation. It went down really well, went down a storm and I was a star for the day on the street."
She next sang Dickie Valentine's In A Golden Coach, but she was melancholy and teary-eyed when she delivered the verses. She then said:
"Happy Platinum Jubilee everybody."
After getting COVID in January 2021, the singer made headlines recently when she announced that she has a long-term bout of the virus. The singer recently revealed that she will be traveling to the United Kingdom this year.
