Speaking about Harry’s sweet gaffe, Phil and Holly joked that he was “delirious” as he had probably been up night as Meghan gave birth.

As a clip of Harry thanking the horses played, Phil joked: “He’s delirious!”

Holly added: “He’s been up all night and it’s all been very stressful but he’s there and he’s just thanking the horses.”

Mocking Harry’s speech, Phil said: “Thank you, thank you all. Thank you. Ooh there’s a little ant, thank you.”

Bursting out in laughter, Holly said: “I love that he chuckles after he thanks the horses.”

The mum-of-three paid tribute to Baby Sussex with her outfit for the daytime show.

The presenter sported a blue lace dress from Ganni with a pair of nude heels from Gianvito Rossi.

Congratulating the couple on their new baby, the presenter captioned the post: “Happy Tuesday… Congratulations @sussexroyal on the arrival of your baby boy… what wonderful news.

“Enjoy these first precious moments, there is nothing quite like it… #royalblue.”

Baby Sussex is the latest addition to the royal family and is seventh in line to the throne.

It’s been said the little boy could be given the title of the Earl of Dumbarton – the title Harry was granted by his grandmother the Queen on the morning of his wedding last year as well as being given a dukedom.
