The Taskmaster star sang: "It's not fair, I'm just a normal tax payer. And in a couple years, do it all again for the guy with no hair", alongside a picture of Prince William.

Referring to those who were reportedly arrested for peacefully protesting against the Monarchy along the Coronation procession route in London, Chawawa sang: "Guys you know you better watch out, 'cause it's a free country unless you shout, 'Not my king.' "

Showing pictures of food banks he trills: "Coronation cost us 100 mil, some people can't even afford a meal."

He goes on: "The king's smiling with the diamond, the same one, one thing from Africa you won't send back to where it came from."
