The BBC has apologized for airing a photo of Prince William with a penis drawn on his head.

The Guardian reported that the gaffe happened on Thursday on BBC Breakfast during a teaser for the show's upcoming feature about Barbershopera, a musical comedy quartet. The clip showed the image while previewing the group's song "I Could Have Married Kate."

The BBC apologized for the mistake, saying that producers did not catch it before going on air. "This image was shown fleetingly within a comedy promotional video for Barbershopera, a humorous barbershop group, who were appearing later on in the programme," a spokesperson explained.

"The material was provided by Barbershopera but we failed to spot the offending material within it. We apologise for this."
