Responding to this, another user wrote, “Quick lesson about UK royalty .. the king or queen never sings the National Anthem .. what would they sing God Save me ..?! Get it Got it .. Good.”

“Total, utter, disrespect for his father, the nation, the Crown and the monarch,” another Twitter user tweeted with a series of angry face emojis.
