Lovehoney responded with a hilarious meme

Without missing a beat, the adult site Lovehoney shared a meme of the situation, writing: "When you confuse your Summer hols with our Summer Sale. It happens to the best of us @schofe. #ThisMorning." The dad-of-two retweeted the hilarious response from the company, adding laughing emojis. 

He also retweeted a viewer who had filmed the clip, writing: "Phillip! What HAVE you been ordering," replying: "Oh dear." Plenty of viewers took to Twitter to share a laugh over the moment, with one writing: "I burst out laughing when I heard the slip up this morning, I had to explain to my mum why @Lovehoney was so funny and that you definitely aren’t a holiday company."

During the interview, Phillip said: "For someone who allegedly moves in aristocratic circles, isn't this all a bit tawdry and undignified?" Lady C said of her book, which looks into the past and future lives of the royals: "If you know anything about writing biographies, or what is regarded as a good biography, you have minimal input from the person about whom you are writing [...] but you speak to everybody around them, you do not need to have input from them."
