British chart-topper Adele – who serenaded King Charles at his coronation – may soon buy her own royal jewels after signing the richest deal in Las Vegas history for her extended residency in Sin City, The Post has learned.

The “Hello” singer is expected to rake in about $2 million every time she takes the stage at Caesars Palace after agreeing to do another 34 shows, a source close to the diva with direct knowledge of the songs told The Post.

The multiple Grammy winner’s 60-show deal to perform at The Colosseum — the first run of 26 performances ended on April 16 — is guaranteed to earn her $105 million, the sources said.

A second source confirmed the numbers.

That works out to $1.75 million per performance, but the pact also provides a 5% sweetener if ticket sales minus fees surpass her overnight windfall, according to Adele’s first insider.

The source said ticket sales – when the new run begins on June 16 – currently average $2.5 million after fees, which should boost her payday to around $2 million.

The cheapest seat in the 4,200-seat arena for opening night costs about $600, according to a check of resale sites.

The shows take place on weekends through November.

However, the first run of “Weekends with Adele” failed to sell out some of its 24 dates, according to a report from The Sun that quoted Colosseum officials.

Still, the guaranteed $1.75 million per show is much higher than media reports that pegged Adele’s residency deal at about $1.2 million per night.

“It’s a record,” both sources said.

Spokesmen for Adele and Caesars did not return calls on Friday.

Adele was one of Britain’s top stars to disapprove of King Charles – despite the monarch reportedly wanting her to perform at his coronation on May 7.

The singer-songwriter, who lives in Beverly Hills, California, said she had scheduling conflicts.

Adele’s guaranteed nightly payout snatches the tiara from Lady Gaga, whose residency earned $1.5 million per show, according to a casino.org analysis.

The “Poker Face” singer’s run at the Park Theater at Park MGM lasted four years and ended last May.

Britney Spears reportedly made $137 million from her Planet Hollywood residency from 2013-2017, but that included 146 shows — averaging just over $1 million per night.

Adele, who delayed the start of her residency last year, has a long way to go to sink Vegas’ Titanic earnings leader Celine Dion, who earned $681.3 million in 14 years after performing 1,141 shows.

That equates to nearly $600,000 for each night of “My Heart Will Go On.”
