February 13, 2018 12:13

The Royal Television Society recently celebrated their 90th anniversary. As part of the celebration, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla paid a visit to ITV. The Royal couple appeared on This Morning with presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

And they didn’t come alone. Accompanying the Royals was Digby, their pooch.

Digby came along for the show. But he had other ideas. Just before recording began, the dog grabbed a mic and started running around the studio.

It was pretty amusing to watch. While Prince Charles tried giving the playful pooch instructions, Digby had his own ideas. Finally, Digby listened to the now red-faced Prince Charles and handed the mic over.

Digby is no stranger to the red carpet

Digby is no stranger to the red carpet. He made an appearance on the red carpet of the National Television Awards. Here he posed for a photo with some of the attendees.

He may not have worn a tuxedo or shiny shoes, but he sure had people taking second looks.

The Royal family are huge dog lovers

It was not all talk on the This Morning. Duchess Camilla also got a taste of some of the food in the cooking segment. The spread was put together by chef Phil Vickery and consisted of mutton and parsnips.
