Royal Variety Performance 2018: Blunder as Greg Davies introduces the wrong act

Greg Davies made a bit of a faux pas in front of the royals when he introduced the wrong act at the Royal Variety Performance.

The comedian was set to introduce a performer to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who watched on from the royal box, but sadly he got a little confused and walked off red-faced – leaving fans giggling.

Greg then left the stage once again, expecting a bigger cheer from the audience, which he got from Prince Harry who yelled out, along with Meghan who clapped and chuckled.

He then joked to the fans: "Oh, thank you, what a lovely welcome."

At hearing a wolf whistle, he looked a little perturbed, and said: "Oh no, I’m sorry, mum."

The rest of the performance has, so far, gone off without a hitch, and Meghan laughed heartily when Greg spoke about some of her early moments in the royal family, including her wedding and their Australia tour.
