Prince Charles calling the Queen ‘Mummy’ sparks huge debate on the internet

Prince Charles has sparked a huge debate online after he called the Queen "mummy" during the Jubilee concert over the weekend.

The 73-year-old addressed the monarch during a moving speech in front of spectators watching the BBC's Party at the Palace on Saturday night.

He joined the Cambridges and the Tindalls as they sang along to a star-studded line-up which included performances from Sir Elton John, Diana Ross and Sir Rod Stewart.

Closing off the entertainment, he marked his mother's 70 years of reign and said: “Your Majesty, Mummy. You have been with us in our difficult times.

"And you bring us together to celebrate moments of pride, joy and happiness.

"You have met us and talked with us. You laugh and cry with us and, most importantly, you have been there for us, for these 70 years."

But his emotional message sparked controversy on social media platform Twitter, with some Brits stating "it's not normal behaviour."

One user said: "Prince Charles referring to the Queen as ‘mummy’ – a bit strange."

While another commented: "Prince Charles saying “Mummy” has ruined my year actually."

A third wrote: "Totally bizarre in a man of 70 plus."

But others said they could relate to Prince Charles and said he isn't the only one who uses the term as an adult.

One woman said in defence: "I'm 46 yrs old. I call my mum mummy so I can relate to Charles calling his mum the queen mummy it just shows he loves her very much."

While someone else said: "I think it's an English thing. My brother's English step sons call their mum mummy and they are in their 30s."

Charles publicly used the term during the Diamond Jubilee concert and at his mother's 92nd birthday celebrations in 2018.

He started his speech again by using the words, "Your Majesty, Mummy" and was applauded by the crowd.

But the Queen, who was standing next to him on stage, was spotted rolling her eyes before breaking into a smile.
