(LONDON) -- A BBC morning show was forced to apologize after accidentally airing a video from a musical comedy troupe that featured a defaced picture of new dad Prince William sporting magic-markered missing teeth, and a penis on his forehead.
During a tease for an upcoming segment for the group Barbershopera, BBC Breakfast aired a snippet of the group's humorous song, "I Could Have Married Kate," in which a jilted man laments not marrying the now Duchess of Cambridge.
The video shows him gluing his face over photos of William with Kate, but in plain view -- but apparently not to the show's producers -- was a black-and-white picture of the defaced face of the royal heir. A viewer caught a snap of the offending image and tweeted it out.
BBC said in a statement, "This image was shown fleetingly...but we failed to spot the offending material within it. We apologise for this."
