It comes after Mae revealed King Charles is fan of the competition as she rehearsed for the upcoming Grand Final.
However, despite gaining the support of royalty, 1981 winner and former Bucks Fizz member Jay Aston admitted that she doesn’t think the hopeful will win.
After performing at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, she discussed her ‘chill’ meeting with King Charles and Queen Camilla as they wished her luck ahead of the show.
Joining The Rebecca Judd Show on Apple Music 1, Mae excitedly said: ‘Just another moment that I can just add to my life where I’m like, “What’s going on?”‘
She explained: ‘He met the hosts and he met me, and it was just quite nice, him and Camilla. I can’t even remember what they said now, it was a bit of a blackout, but they just were wishing me good luck and that they’d be watching from home.
‘What was weird is seeing someone who you know their face so well, but then looking at him in real life, I was like, “Oh my God, you’re real. That’s so weird. That’s so odd.”
‘I’ve never met a royal before, so I was like, “What do I do? Do I curtsy? Is that a thing still? What do I address them as?” I just didn’t know.
‘I thought I’d watched enough of The Crown to be up to date, but I was like, “I’m not going to rely on that. I need to get some actual… do my research,'” she joked.

Mae added: ‘It was quite chill and it did feel, despite it not being normal at all, it did feel just quite natural and organic. But I did say, “What do I say? Just so I don’t offend anyone.” But it was chill. It was chill.’
Despite garnering the support of Charles and Camilla, Bucks Fizz member Jay, gave her predictions to Sky Bingo.
The singer began: ‘Sam Ryder changed the whole dynamic and landscape with a phenomenal song, and he’s just such a great performer – he’s just got that star quality.
‘I wish Mae all the luck, but I don’t think it’s a winner if I’ve got to be honest. I think she’ll do really well, hopefully top five, but I don’t think she’ll win unless something amazing happens on the night.’
