Katy Perry tripped while leaving Westminster Abbey following King Charles III and Queen Camilla’s coronation ceremony in London on Saturday.
The pop star, 38, was seen in photos from the historic event looking startled as she tried to regain her balance.
Perry — who wore a Vivienne Westwood-designed lilac set with a matching hat and gloves — nearly fell after her white stiletto heels slipped on the wet concrete.
However, the “California Gurls” singer avoided a disaster as she was able to successfully exit the Anglican church without tumbling to the ground.
Inside Westminster Abbey, though, Perry did not have the same stroke of good luck.
The “Dark Horse” singer went viral for looking confused while trying to find her seat at the start of the coronation.
“Looking for my friends in the club after coming in from the smoking area,” tweeted one fan, following the incident.
“Ladies and gentlemen… a new meme had been born 😂,” added another.

“me as a kid going aisle to aisle after getting lost in the grocery store 😭,” joked a third royal watcher.
“When you arrive at the cinema screening and you’re trying to find seat J14,” tweeted a fourth person.
Perry — who is currently taking a temporary leave of absence from her gig as a judge on “American Idol” — was invited since she’ll be performing at Charles’ coronation concert Sunday.
“I am excited to be performing at the coronation concert and helping to shine a further light on the British Asian Trust’s Children’s Protection Fund, whose work includes on-ground initiatives to fundraising, with the aim to find solutions to child trafficking,” the “I Kissed a Girl” singer said in a statement last month.
According to a British diplomat, Perry first met Charles at an event in 2019. The next year, the King appointed her as an ambassador for the British Asian Trust, which tackles poverty in South Asia.
Other celebs set to perform at Charles’ coronation concert Sunday include Lionel Richie, British pop group Take That and opera stars Andrea Bocelli and Bryn Terfel.
