The exchange began after newsreader Alex Cullen reported that Prince Philip’s will would be sealed from the public for 90 years following his death.

When entertainment reporter Brooke Boney asked why that was the case, Stefanovic deadpanned that the reason for the secrecy was because ‘he’s got ten other kids to another person’.

Langdon was still amused at that point, laughing: ‘We were all thinking it! None of us wanted to say that out loud.’

Black comedy: 'You can't sue when you're dead, can you?' Stefanovic joked, which earned him a reprimand from Langdon for the 'unnecessary' quip
