A New York news anchor had a slip of the tongue when he was teasing an upcoming segment about Prince William and Kate's visit to Cambridge on Wednesday.

CBS anchor Rob Morrison accidentally called William 'the douche' instead of the Duke of Cambridge.

He was previewing an upcoming segment on the 1pm news when he said: 'Also the reason why the latest royal visit was extra special for the douche- Duke, ha ha, and Duchess of Cambridge.'

The nervous laughter following the slip, seen in the clip,  showed that he clearly realized the mistake quickly and was hoping to blow by it.

HOW DOUCHE BECAME A SLUR

Long known as a feminine hygiene product, douche (the shortened version of the offensive slang word 'douchebag') became commonly used in a derogatory way in the 1960s.

It came to mean an arrogant or obnoxious man who is disrespectful and self-absorbed.

The reason behind said special visit is that it was the first time that William and Kate visited Cambridge since the Queen conferred the Dukedom on the couple on their wedding day in April last year.

Prince William is descended from the son of George III who was created Duke of Cambridge in 1801 through Queen Mary.

The couple made the trip to their namesake city on Wednesday to open a hospital, but it was Kate's new haircut that stole the show.

Spectator Joanne Baldwin, 30, spoke to the Duchess during the couple's walkabout. 'I told her I loved her new hair style,' she said.

 

 

'She said: "I'm not sure about it. It's a bit windy today." I said don't worry, it looks lovely.'

The duchess appeared nervous as she continued to sweep her layers off her face but saw the funny side as even the city's mayor struggled to keep her ceremonial hat in place during her speech.

The couple arrived in the city by train travelling First Class from King's Cross in London where they had stayed overnight, stepping off the scheduled train shortly after 10am.

Kate, 30, in a pale grey MaxMara £980 Belli overcoat and dress with brown suede Aquatalia ankle boots and a chocolate brown clutch by Emmy Scarterfield, had her new fringe on display and within minutes the wintry weather had reduced her glossy locks to a head full of tangles.

Kate and William were greeted by crowds of thousands as they made their first visit to the city that gave the name to their dukedom

Yep, its been really wet and windy here, recently.   Lots of trees blown down, and the worst flooding for 13 years.
