The BBC has apologized for accidentally broadcasting a picture of Prince William in which an obscene doodle has been drawn onto his head.

Eagle-eyed viewers caught a glimpse of a picture of the prince with a penis drawn on his head on Thursday morning.

The image flashed up during a music video for a song titled “I Could Have Married Kate” by comedy singing group Barbershopera.

Several viewers tweeted a screen-grab of the image, shown during the BBC’s breakfast television program.
