Dan Walker apologised to his BBC Breakfast guest after he made a royal gaffe on today’s show (Monday June 7).
The 44-year-old presenter interviewed former Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
But it wasn’t long before he mixed up the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex… twice.
What did Dan Walker say on BBC Breakfast this morning?
Interviewing Mr Brown, Dan asked: “Can I just ask you as well, you met with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Scotland?
“I don’t expect you to tell me exactly what was said at the meeting but did the subject of Scottish independence come up?”
After Mr Brown diplomatically swerved the question, Dan then realised his mistake – he had meant to ask Mr Brown about William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
He added: “Did I say Sussex, sorry I meant the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, forgive me Mr Brown.”
“Did I say Sussex again?”
However, Dan then realised his double mistake and apologised again.
“Did I say Sussex again?” Dan asked.
“Sorry, I meant Cambridge, I don’t know what’s happening with my brain.”
It may be that Dan had Harry and Meghan on the brain because of the couple’s exciting baby announcement, that happened yesterday.
