While reporting on the Today show on Wednesday, Ally tried to find the words to comment on how rough the past couple of years have been for the Queen

The 41-year-old TV host started her news bulletin strong, but while trying to provide examples scandals to rock the palace, she inadvertently stated Prince Philip was in jail.

“She has weathered a lot of storms lately,’ Allison began, before adding: “Prince Andrew, this, and of course her husband’s in jail so…”

Upon realising what she said, Ally immediately tried to correct herself, but instead of saying the word hospital, she continued to say “prison”, before finally adding “hospital”.

While trying not to laugh and burying her face in her hands, the breakfast television host added: “Hospital, let’s go with hospital.”

Co-host Karl Stefanovic then quipped: “Breaking news this morning,” before Ally reiterated: “Let’s go with hospital… and I’m going to leave it at that.

“Anyway, our thoughts are with the Queen this morning… and Prince Philip,” she continued.

Karl then joked: “From hospital to the clink… he’s having a tough day, Phil.”

Ally added: “He is… so am I!”

Prince Philip, 99, is reportedly still recovering in hospital following a recent heart procedure for an underlying condition.

Ally’s little on-air faux pas comes after British broadcaster Piers Morgan sensationally slammed the Sussexes for their interview before he reportedly quit his Good Morning Britain hosting role.

“They trash everybody. They basically make out that the Royal Family are a bunch of white supremacists, by dropping this [racism] bombshell,” Piers told viewers on Monday.

“They didn’t name anyone. They just throw it out there, it could be any member of the Royal Family, they didn’t name which one it was, and Harry says: ‘I’ll never say who it was’, well you better say it fast,” he added.
