The BBC’s official Radio 4 Twitter account has liked a tweet calling the new Princess Diana statue ‘hideous,’ according to reports. 

The tweet in question read: “I’m sorry but this is hideous.”

A BBC spokesperson has now confirmed to the Daily Mail that the post was liked by mistake.

They said: “This was an accident and shouldn’t have been liked. It’s now been deleted.”

The statue was unveiled on what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th birthday.

It marked the first time that Prince Harry had visited the UK since the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip.

Recently, it’s been alleged that the Duke of Sussex is keen to patch things up with his family, after quitting the UK.

Historian Robert Lacey claimed that the 36-year-old is feeling ‘homesick’ and ‘mournfully’ ringing friends over in England as he muses over his past choices.

The writer penned: “‘Homesick Harry’ has been calling UK pals mournfully in recent weeks, since his public complaints against Prince Charles were so poorly received.

According to Lacey, the Duke of Sussex’s friends ‘have been trying to point out to him the risk he is running with his stream of hurtful, personal complaints’.

He also added: “I’m told that Harry has been telling friends that he would like to reconcile, and is willing to admit some of the missteps he has made.”

Prince Harry left his wife Meghan Markle at home as she recently gave birth to their second child.

The couple named her Lilibet Diana in a nod to both her great-grandmother, the Queen, and her grandmother, Princess Diana.
