Former BBC radio presenter Danny Baker, 64, took to Twitter last night to criticise Prince William. The royal attended with his wife Kate Middleton and their eldest son Prince George to cheer England on in their match against Germany.

However, Danny took issue with their appearance as he took to social media to criticise the royals.

Posting in view of his 503,000 Twitter followers, he shared a picture of Prince William and Prince George at the football.

He wrote: “Let us visit a football match my boy where my aides assure me the correct dress is a suit and a tie.

“By the way, don’t worry – we do not pay for the tickets, never have, it’s supplied to us by who knows what privilege!”

The tweet sparked some backlash from other Twitter users who corrected him on some aspects.

One wrote: “Completely random and pointless comment Danny. He was president of the FA.”

As well as this, a user explained how he was wearing a suit because there was a dress code.

They replied: “This might clear up your faux-outrage. Never had to adhere to a dress code Danny?

“Never enjoyed a freebie due to privilege? Leave the boy alone.”

“In fairness, he is president of the FA. He’d be there in an official capacity,” another wrote.

“Got the job due to who he is granted. But that explains the suit. Has been seen at football and ruggers in casual clobber.”

While a fourth penned: “You got into trouble the last time you commented on the royals.”

Baker exited BBC Radio 5 Live back in 2019 following another tweet about the royals.

He had shared an image of a couple holding a baby chimpanzee with the caption: “Royal Baby leaves hospital.”

The since-deleted tweet led to him being accused of mocking the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s, racial heritage.

At the time, Baker apologised for his tweet on Twitter, writing: “Sincere apologies for the stupid unthinking gag pic earlier.

“Was supposed to be joke about Royals vs circus animals in posh clothes but interpreted as about monkeys & race, so rightly deleted. Royal watching not my forte.”

The BBC issued a statement which said the tweet “goes against the values we as a station aim to embody”.

It added: “Danny’s a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us.”

Since then, Danny has been working on his show called the Treehouse podcast.
