In the video, which has gained more than 717,000 views, the woman said: "Isn't that a nice tribute to the Queen from Tesco? The only thing is nobody thought through the product placement.

"Of all the different boxes of chocolates they could have put next to that, they chose Celebrations. Tesco!"

TikTok users were left divided over the video which has racked up more than 78,000 likes since it was posted 22 hours ago.

Some users took to the comments defending the decision as they claim the Queen would have found the placement funny as she was known for her sense of humour.

One user wrote: "HM The Queen was known for her wicked sense of humour so I imagine she would have seen the funny side of this."

Another added: "QE2 had a sense of humour. I’m sure she’d love this."

A third commented: "I bet HM The Queen would have had a giggle at that. I think that she maybe had a little piece of chocolate now and again."

"We are celebrating her life too," a fourth said.

However, some users didn't approve of it, writing: "That's bad."

Others said it was the same at their local Tesco, while an Asda employee claimed they were told to move the Celebrations tubs away from the Queen's tributes.

"I work at Asda and we had to take down the celebration displays," the Asda employee said.

Tesco has been contacted by the Daily Star for a comment on the display.
