The Drop It Like It’s Hot star’s love for the royals began in the mid-1990s when he faced a UK tour ban after being accused of murder.

Charges were later dropped and Snoop said: “When they tried to kick me out of England, the Queen made a comment that her grandbabies loved Snoop Doggy Dogg, and he had done no wrong in Britain, so she gave me permission to be here.

“Those grandbabies grew up to be Prince William and Harry, so I had influence on them and they had influence on their grandmother, which enabled me to get into this beautiful country.

“They love my music. There’s mutual love and respect.”

Snoop went on: “Coronation Street, I love it. If they call me I’ll do it. I’ll play whenever they need.

“I love the cinematography, acting, the storylines and just the reality.

“I’d like to be part of it because they’ve been part of my culture.”

Snoop, who has had nine top ten UK singles, was speaking at the launch of his new game HotBox with the crypto casino Roobet.

He also hit out at cancel culture insisting: “That’s what the fans love. When you get me you’re getting a one of a kind experience.”
