Larry Emdur is feeling the heat from royal fans after posting a risqué meme to his Instagram profile where he pokes fun at the royal baby.

WATCH: Larry get egged by his co-host, below! 

Posting the picture in response to the news of the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby boy, the co-host of Seven’s The Morning Show followed a different path to many celebrities.

Instead of a ‘congratulations’ post, the 54-year-old chose to share a funny meme with his 132k Instagram followers.

In the photograph, the queen and Prince Charles are pictured laughing, and Larry has added the text: “WHAT??? They want us to give that half-American baby a Royal title???”

He captions the post “#family”.


Viewers of The Morning Show will be familiar with Larry’s larrikin antics, but royal fans are less forgiving, with some calling the host “disgusting” and “not funny”.

“Shame on you Larry Emdur!! And I’m one of your biggest fans!!!!” one follower commented.

“I love you Lazza but don’t mess with my royals,” said another.

“Not funny at all Larry I think a few too many wines shame on you.”

While others realised the post was made in jest and saw the funny side.

“Everyone needs to find their sense of humour! This is funny!” one fan exclaimed.

“I don’t know what’s funnier – your post or the hate you’re getting for it,” said another.


Larry has joked in the past about the royal family, even suggesting Meghan and Harry may have split up in previous The Morning Show segments.

While his co-host Kylie Gillies came under fire for controversially questioning Lara Bingle on her sex life with Sam Worthington just last week.
