Prince William’s ‘strange little dog sculpture’ in Kensington Palace is mocked by a BBC reporter.
During a climate change interview, BBC’s Adam Fleming made a joke with Prince William about a “strange dog” sculpture.
Adam Fleming, the BBC’s chief political correspondent, met down with Prince William to discuss some of the climate change concerns that are important to him. The Duke of Cambridge reflected on his father’s years of ridicule for his commitment to climate change, as well as the critical need for action moving forward. Mr. Fleming made a joke with the Duke about some of the room’s décor as the two talked in Kensington Palace.
Mr Fleming then mocked Prince William for having a “strange dog sculpture” under a table in the room.
Mr Flemming was queried about the incident and the interview in general by BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty.
“I know you talked about a lot of important stuff, but you brought up the dog ornament,” she added.
“You mentioned it was a strange tiny dog sculpture, right?”
So, how did Kensington Palace react to you walking in and slamming two newscast cups on the table?”
“They were pretty happy with it,” Mr Fleming replied, “because there are some major Newscast listeners in Kensington Palace.”
“I’m not going to identify names because I don’t believe it’s William and Kate, but some of his crew do pay attention.”
