Within a couple of seconds after tweeting the photo, there was a widespread accusation of racism. Soon after, Danny deleted the post and later said he was sorry the gag had whipped some up.

In the second message, Danny claimed that he was supposed to make a joke about Royals vs circus animals in post clothes but interpreted as about monkeys & race, so rightly deleted.

On Thursday, Danny admitted that he made an enormous mistake.

Danny revealed how waves of panic and revulsion washed over him when he tweeted the royal baby chimpanzee and later sacked by the BBC.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was born on Monday morning. On Wednesday, the royal couple presented the baby to the world in front of the selected media.

The newly born royal child made history by becoming the first biracial child in the royal family.
