Prince William and Kate come under fire for 'saucy' Instagram video

Prince William and Kate Middleton have left royal fans reeling after they posted a 'saucy' video on social media. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are always very professional on their social media pages, so fans couldn't believe their ears, when they heard the couple had chosen a very raunchy song to accompany a post of Prince William. 

While most fans thought it was funny, several were horrified that the social media of the future King of England featured the song Watermelon Sugar by Harry Styles.

And why were they horrified?

The song allegedly features a risque sexual euphemism!

Although Harry Styles is one of the most popular British music acts, royal watchers felt it was an inappropriate song choice, and not in line with royal protocol.

"Isn't this song a bit saucy for a royal family post?" said one fan.

"I am not sure about the song selection for this one," another wrote, with someone else adding, "Very questionable song choice."

Others felt sure that the song "distracted" from the royals' important message - and let Kate and William know the  "true meaning" of the song, by saying, "Maybe check the meaning behind watermelon sugar lyrics!!!"

The song is allegedly about oral sex, although that's never been confirmed by Harry Styles. 

What is clear though, is that royal fans much preferred Harry and William's social media when they didn't add songs to their posts.

"This is childish and odd," said one person. 

"Less pop music and more ceremony please," said another. 

Given the backlash, we're not sure if Kate and William will be adding any more Harry Styles songs to their posts...
