Diana Vickers, 31, found herself at the centre of controversy after recording and sharing a video of herself singing a made-up song that poked fun at King Charles and his marriages to Princess Diana and Queen Camilla.
The X Factor star was joined by a friend, as they both wore crowns to sing about Camilla and King Charles’s love affair, accusing the former of playing “the ultimate long game”.
The video, shared with Diana’s 102,000 Instagram followers, was captioned: “QUEEN CAMILLA (the ultimate long game) For all you side pieces out there… stay focused.”
Singing in an American accent, the pair began: “Ladies, this is a lesson for all of you side pieces out there, stay focused.
“Well there was three of us in this marriage,” Princess Diana’s voice can be heard in an overlay from an interview discussing her relationship with Charles.
“But only one can be Queen – Camilla,” the singing duo added.
Diana and her friend, who are known as “Ki and Dee” on social media, continued: “And Diana said ‘Love me love me love me’ I want to work on this marriage, and Charles was like ‘absolutely not’ and we know what happened in Paris…
“Chemistry is chemistry, love is love, kept apart by an institution they said Charles she’s not enough – a little side piece divorcee, said she couldn’t be Queen but she’s doing it anyway.”
The chorus added: “‘Cause ladies persistence is everything, C-A-M-I-L-L-A – what does it spell? Winner. C-A-M-I-L-L-A – what does it spell? Inspiration.”
Along with the self-recorded video of the performance, the pair interspersed images of Diana, Camilla and Charles – including one of the late Princess in her iconic revenge dress with “waste of time” written over it.
However, the video did not go down well with many social media users, who furiously took to the comments section to blast the pair’s “disrespectful” song.

“I don’t get why this is funny… I find it disrespectful,” commented @Annaburton67.
“The lengths you’re willing to go to for a viral moment,” said @Finbarr___ along with an emoji throwing up.
@Catrob2012 typed: “This is really, really cringe. Just [email protected] and it isn’t even funny?!”
