Oasis has a good swipe at the Royal Family on the latest video for "Falling Down". Directed by WIZ, the clip shows a fake royal princess being completely snubbed by the band at an event that they are both attending. She goes to shake their hands and gets well...nothing but a stare. They've even managed to throw in a little bit of real life too with Prince Charles being spliced into the mix at the end. Here is the video:
