Today show host Sophie Walsh calls Prince Charles a ‘cradle snatcher’

Today show fill-in host Sophie Walsh jokingly calls Prince Charles a ‘cradle snatcher’ for marrying Diana Spencer when he was 12 years her senior

Sophie Walsh has been spicing up the Today show recently as the current fill-in host for Ally Langdon.

And on Thursday’s episode, she made an outrageous remark about Prince Charles and Diana Spencer’s 1981 wedding. 

While introducing a retrospective segment about the royal nuptials, the 35-year-old made a joke about the former couple’s age difference.

‘The entire world was captivated when 20-year-old Diana Spencer walked down the aisle to marry Prince Charles, who was 12 years her senior – cradle snatcher,’ she said. 

Making things more awkward is the fact that she made the comment in front of British royal photographer Kent Gavin, who was one of the main photographers at Charles and Diana’s wedding.

Sophie seemed to be feeling particularly cheeky on Thursday, as she also made a cutting joke at co-host Karl Stefanovic’s expense. 

Too much? 'The entire world was captivated when 20-year-old Diana Spencer walked down the aisle to marry Prince Charles, who was 12 years her senior - cradle snatcher,' she said

‘Can you believe it, today marks 40 years since the wedding of that century,’ Karl said.

Sophie then shot back: ‘I wasn’t alive, but you would’ve been.’

The notoriously unfiltered Karl, 46, seemed stunned that somebody had finally given him a taste of his own medicine, responding: ‘Oh wow. The hits keep coming!’

Sophie is best known for her work as a reporter on Nine News in Sydney.

Last year, she was attacked by a protestor in London’s Hyde Park while covering a Black Lives Matter protest.

‘This random guy grabbed me from behind… He started punching me, the only way I can describe it is sort of stabby motions,’ she described the incident. 

The man was arrested and sentenced in the Newcastle Crown Court for the assault and other offences in March of this year.
