Perry has previously attended events for the foundation, which King Charles founded in 2007.
“I’m an ambassador to one of his foundations for the British Asian Trust, which primarily focuses on ending child trafficking, which is a huge issue of our time that people don’t talk enough about. And it just aligned with all my values … He asked me to sing and it all aligned,” Perry told Extra.
