Kay Burley made a royal slip up by calling the new royal baby a “porker” live on television.
The ubiquitous Sky News presenter was covering the birth of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince William’s third child and second baby boy on Monday morning (April 23) when she made the unfortunate reference.
The drama went down after it was announced Kate had gone into labour and Kay was awaiting updates that the baby had officially been born.
After Kensington Palace confirmed Kate gave birth at 11.01am at St Mary’s Hospital and that the baby weighed 8lbs 7oz, Sky News’ royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills broke the news to Kay live on air.
“Oh yeah, thank you,” she replied. “It’s a boy, it’s a boy!”
Rhiannon then started going into the detail of the birth and the weight of the baby, with Kay telling the camera: “Oh, it was a porker again.”
Obviously, 8lbs 7oz is hardly a “porker” sized baby weight, causing viewers at home to query Kay’s choice of words.
