It seems the person behind the Royal website baby announcement wasn’t the only to make a mistake, since Prince William made a little blunder himself. But don’t worry, Kate was there to correct him.

When first asked about the birth of baby Archie, at the King’s Cup Regatta launch, Prince William said, ‘Yes absolutely, [I'm an] uncle, second time for me.’

He quickly added, pointing to his wife, ‘and you as well’.

The Duchess was having none of it, retorting, ‘I’m definitely not an uncle.’

Realising his mistake, the Duke started laughing along with his wife. Don’t you just love the banter between those two?

The pair are known for their sense of humour, and even welcomed Prince Harry and Meghan to the 'sleepless deprivation society'.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
