Why did Freya Ridings drop out of the King's coronation concert?
It was announced on Friday that Freya Ridings had to pull out of the coronation concert lineup as she was "unwell". She will instead be replaced by Zak Abel. In a statement, the BBC said: "The BBC has announced that British singer-songwriter Zak Abel is stepping in to perform at Sunday’s Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle, replacing Freya Ridings, who has had to pull out, due to being unwell and therefore unable to perform."
Who is Zak Abel – Freya Ridings' replacement for coronation concert?
Zak Abel is a British singer-songwriter who has collaborated with the likes of Gorgon City, Kygo and Tom Misch.
Speaking about joining the line-up, Zak said: "I am honoured and overwhelmed to be included in the Coronation celebrations. To have the opportunity to be part of such a historic moment is something I will forever be humbled by and will never forget."
What do we know about the coronation choir?
King Charles III's coronation concert will also see the especially created Coronation Choir sing in front of the newly crowned King and Queen Consort. 300 singers from across the nation have been brought together from diverse backgrounds to perform at the event at Windsor Castle in May.
The group's journey from individual groups of singers with varied expertise to one combined voice is being documented in the one-off BBC documentary Sing for the King: The Search for the Coronation Choir, which was broadcast on BBC One on Friday 5 May. For the experience, the lucky group is being mentored by choirmaster Gareth Malone, Strictly Come Dancing judge Motsi Mabuse, Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden and former Eastenders actress and Strictly star Rose Ayling-Ellis.

Will the royals attend the King's coronation concert?
The King and Queen Consort are likely to be joined at the coronation concert by senior members of the royal family, including the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh and the Princess Royal.
At the late Queen's Platinum Jubilee concert, we also saw William and Kate's eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, seated in the stands, along with Lady Louise Windsor, then-James, Viscount Severn, and Savannah and Isla Phillips - let's hope we're lucky enough to see the young royals again, as they surely stole the show last time.
Will King Charles make a speech at the coronation concert?
It is not expected that either King Charles or Queen Consort Camilla will make a speech at the coronation concert or appear on the stage at any point. It is believed that they wish to simply enjoy the concert and allow the spotlight to shine on others taking part.
Will Prince William make a speech at the coronation concert?
On Sunday morning it was revealed by Kensington Palace that the Prince of Wales will take to the stage and give a speech at the coronation concert.
