Ally Langdon made the unfortunate Prince Philip gaffe at the end of an interview where she explained the tough times the Queen has recently gone through. As she listed the stand-out royal stories from the last year, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, the presenter said “and of course her husband is in jail” before soon realising her mistake. However, attempts to correct herself made things worse as she kept on saying “prison” when she meant hospital.
Appearing on the Today programme in Australia, Ms Langdon concluded her interview by saying: “[The Queen] must be saddened by [the interview] too.
“Prince Andrew, this, and of course her husband is in jail…”
But Ms Langdon paused and tried to correct herself and said “prison” instead of hospital.
She then covered her face with her hands before saying “hospital, let’s go with hospital.”

Co-host Karl Stefanovic then joked “breaking news this morning” and said: “From hospital to the clink, he’s having a tough day, Phil.”
Ms Langdon tried to move on and said her thoughts were with the Queen and Prince Philip.
It comes as Buckingham Palace released a statement in response to the allegations made by Meghan Markle during her Oprah interview.
The statement reads: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”
Prince Philip has been under medical monitoring in hospital since February 16 and Buckingham Palace confirmed last week the Duke of Edinburgh had undergone a “successful” treatment at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London.
Oprah Winfrey was interviewed soon after the programme aired and revealed the allegations of racism did not involve the Queen or Prince Philip.
Meghan Markle claims that an unnamed Royal Family member had “concerns” over the skin tone of unborn baby Archie.

A journalist asked him for his opinions on the interview before he was quickly ushered away.
Prince William was also seen driving around London with some stating he looked “tired”.
The Oprah interview aired a day after it was shown in the US and has been seen over 11 million times on ITV.
