This one word that Prince Charles used during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations to address the Queen has left the Internet divided. The Prince of Wales said, "Your Majesty, Mummy. You have met us, you have talked with us. You laugh and cry with us, and most importantly you have been there with us for these 70 years."

As he continued addressing the crowd and those who were watching from home, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker-Bowles also shared their words via their official Twitter account to congratulate the Queen.

This tweet read, "Your Majesty, Mummy, The scale of this evening's celebration - and the outpouring of warmth and affection over this whole Jubilee weekend - is our way of saying thank you - from your family, the country, the Commonwealth, in fact the whole world."



 

However, the use of the word 'mummy' by a 73-year-old man was not taken quite well by internet users. This sparked some debate online as netizens were unable to get over the use of this affectionate word. A tweet read, "Bit odd a 73 year old man calling his Mother “Mummy” it’s a little bit creepy. #PrinceCharles #Mummy #Creepy I hope Prince William is our next King. Not that I’m a royalist but I can’t see the #Monarchy being abolished in my lifetime. Definitely wouldn’t want Charles as king"



 

Another said, "Prince Charles calling queen Liz ‘mummy’: new level of ick unlocked" One user said, "It’s so cringe that Prince Charles is over 70 and still calls the queen “mummy”, why don’t we bully him more for it". "I saw the exact moment Camilla got the ick… When Prince Charles called the Queen ‘mummy’ in front of the entire world. She’ll be in her group chat now like ‘omg girls, av got the ick, what should I do," said another user.
