Nicki Minaj not only rapped on “Princess Diana (Remix),” she may be celebrating Diana‘s ex-husband, Prince Charles. In a tweet promoting her new single with Ice Spice, Nicki joked she’ll “be attending the coronation.”

“Thank you. Stream #PrincessDiana until I land,” she continued. Nicki then followed with a message giving fans more details and showed off her knowledge of British lingo.

“Fank you. Proper excited, really. Yes, it appears there was one seat open right next to Harry,” she wrote. “I rang his telly & said: ‘You be Harry Potter, & I’ll be Hermoine.’ We both loffed. Met him on the jet and now here we are. Ttyl.” She also reiterated a similar message on a Twitter voice note, broadcasting her British accent.

“Princess Diana (Remix)” dropped Friday on Nicki’s newly announced label, Heavy On It Records. It marks the beginning of her partnership with Ice, with whom she recently twerked on social media.

Nicki’s name is also in headlines as Rep. George Santos reportedly introduced a new vaccine bill named after the rapper. The Medical Information Nuanced Accountability Judgement Act, or the MINAJ Act, seeks to prohibit the federal government from enforcing any mandate to get a vaccine that hasn’t been authorized for marketing for at least a decade.

Nicki had previously stated her reluctance to get vaccinated, noting a family friend’s adverse reaction and her need to do more research.

“They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research,” she wrote at the time.

She said that her cousin’s friend “got it,” “became impotent,” and had his wedding called off. “Just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied,” she advised.
