Orlando Bloom didn't have any hot n cold feelings about Katy Perry's coronation concert performance.

"Immensely proud of you my my love," the actor captioned a May 8 post featuring photos from the big night. "You always bring the light."

Katy—who was appointed ambassador to the British Asian Trust by Charles in 2020—also expressed her gratitude to His Majesty for inviting her to the historic occasion.

"Thank you for having me at this coronation celebration," she added. "I'd like to dedicate this next song to the King and to the work that we get to do together for the British Asian Trust and their children's protection fund. Thank you for bringing out the firework in so many young people."
