Katherine Jenkins could miss Pope’s concert after accusing British Airways of losing her luggage
Katherine Jenkins has said she may have to pull out of performing for Pope Francis at a concert in Rome after accusing British Airways of losing her luggage.
The Welsh classical singer, 42, is due to perform at the Pope’s annual Christmas concert at the Auditorium Conciliazione on Saturday.
Jenkins shared her despair over the lost luggage on Twitter on Thursday, writing: “OMG! @British_Airways have lost my bags AGAIN!
“I’m supposed to be singing tomorrow for the Pope’s Christmas concert in Rome.
“I feel so let down as I will not be able to perform. Please sort this out.”
In response to the post, the official British Airways Twitter account replied with a tweet asking Jenkins to send a direct message and contact details so the company could attempt to track down her lost luggage.
Jenkins is no stranger to performing for high-profile individuals having previously performed for popes as well as at a number of royal occasions in the UK including the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle in 2016 and as part of the celebrations over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend.
In September, it was announced she had become the first artist to record the new national anthem God Save The King after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
British Airways has been contacted for comment.

I’m sure that there are some wars or invasions or royal occasions she can sing at, to make an extra few mil…..that’s her usual style…..
Yeah, they also got two other plastic taffs like Michael Ball and Luke Evans to sing their disgusting Songs of Empire. There is always another level to stoop to where The Welsh are concerned. You can’t really help but understand why we are a laughing stock to most of the world.
Most haven’t heard of us, but if things carry on w*ke this, they may do. We have now been noticed by aware people, who stick the boot in softly, though sleepy Cymro don’t notice, as usual.
What on earth can she have in some lost baggage that would prevent her from singing?
Carries her voice in a plastic bag wrapped up inside her string vest!
She will not have to fly to sing at Carlo’s Coronation…so that should go ahead!
And if she can’t do it I’m sure Michael Ball or Luke Evans will give it a go
You mean English airways, who have a storied history on attacking the actual British language. Which is of course now known as Welsh. Wouldn’t be surprised if they did it on purpose.
