"Which is quite wonderful, it's really lovely, wonderful clip. It’s like a perfect advert for an outdoor brand of some sort."

However, the blunder didn't go unnoticed by viewers - with many taking to Twitter to share their disbelief.

"Chuckled when Ben mentioned Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the anniversary segment of D&D of Cambridge," said one, while another remarked: "@GMB Ben Shephard you made a mistake when talking about the video of the royals. You said it's 10 years since the Sussex's got married! I think you meant Cambridge's."

A third post read: "#gmb That was the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, not Sussex @benshephard [laughing face emoji]."
