The Queen's funeral: Karl Stefanovic's joke about Prince Andrew shocks Allison Langdon


Today show host Karl Stefanovic left his co-anchor Allison Langdon speechless on Tuesday morning after making a loose joke about Prince Andrew.

The Channel Nine presenters were reporting live from outside Buckingham Palace in London alongside The Daily Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers when the conversation turned to Her Majesty’s pet Welsh Corgis.

Following the death of the Queen, the dogs will reportedly live with her disgraced son Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, noted Myers.

‘The beloved dogs, they must be pretty sad,’ Myers added.

Stefanovic joked: ‘They’d certainly feel sad having Andrew looking after them, you know. That would be a major let-down, wouldn’t it? I say nothing though.’ 

Langdon was visibly uncomfortable with where the segment was heading, given Prince Andrew’s recent scandals that have tarnished the reputation of the royals.

The Duke of York had brought shame to his mother in recent years due to his association with late American sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

A civil suit brought by a woman, Virginia Giuffre, who claimed to have slept with Andrew when she was 17 also left his reputation in tatters.

The matter was resolved with an out-of-court settlement in February 2022.

The Queen stripped Andrew of his honorary military roles in January and he gave up his HRH style amid the civil case brought against him by Ms Giuffre. 

Interrupting Stefanovic, Langdon tried to change the subject by asking Myers: ‘You were talking about [the Queen’s] pallbearers there?’

'They'd certainly feel sad having Andrew looking after them, you know. That would be a major let down, wouldn't it? I say nothing though,' Stefanovic joked. Langdon was visibly uncomfortable with where the segment was heading, given Prince Andrew's recent scandals

‘Did you just fob me off?’ Stefanovic said in mock anger. 

‘No, I’m looking after you. Trust me,’ Langdon replied, as Stefanovic jokingly patted her on the leg and said: ‘It’s okay, dear. You don’t have to ask anything more.’ 

It comes after the BBC reported that the Queen’s two young Corgis, Muick and Sandy, will now live with the Duke and Duchess of York.

Muick and Sandy were given to the Queen as gifts by Andrew and his daughters Beatrice and Eugenie in 2021 to lift Her Majesty’s spirits following the death of her husband Prince Philip.

A source close to Prince Andrew told the BBC: ‘The Corgis will return to live at Royal Lodge with the Duke and Duchess. It was the Duchess who found the puppies which were gifted to Her Majesty by the Duke.

‘The Duchess bonded with Her Majesty over dog walking and riding horses, and even after her divorce, she would continue her great friendship with Her Majesty, by walking the dogs in Frogmore and chatting.’

The Queen owned more than 30 Corgis during her lifetime.

Meanwhile, Andrew was visibly emotional as he followed the Queen’s coffin through the streets of London for her state funeral on Monday.

The mourning royal was banned from wearing his military uniform at the ceremony after being stripped of his titles.
