Good Morning Britain fans have hit out at a "disrespectful" man who was spotted advertising a disco site in the background of a tribute to Prince Philip.
Chris Ship, ITV's Royal editor, was seen in front of Windsor Castle on Friday morning telling viewers about how Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had to make "difficult decisions" on who would be able to attend the funeral of the late Duke of Edinburgh tomorrow, after he sadly died aged 99 on Friday 9 April.
"The Queen's had to take what, we were told yesterday by Buckingham Palace, was some difficult decisions about who was going to be in this final 30 – the 30 people who will be inside St. George's Chapel for the funeral," he said.
