The former Oasis member Noel Gallagher recently joked and took a ‘dig at the monarchy’ when as he paid tribute to ‘real royal family.’ It took place at a star-studded charity gala, Football For Change. It was launched by Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold and his England teammate Conor Coady last year, with £250,000 raised at its inaugural fundraising gala in Liverpool. The initiative will distribute grants to organizations supporting young people in the most deprived areas of the country, focusing on education, employment and training.

The Oasis star performed with his band the High Flying Birds at the Football For Change event at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground on Thursday evening and wowed the audience, which included celebrities such as Coleen Rooney and Jamie Carragher. As the 55-year-old performed one of his iconic songs, he asked the crowd: “Is anyone from here from Manchester?”
The Mirror reported that he then said: “This is for the real royal family”, before belting out the Oasis hit Half the World Away. The iconic tune acted as the soundtrack to the BBC comedy The Royle Family.
