Alan Carr divides Royal Variety fans with joke about hitting on Kate Middleton

Alan Carr has left viewers divided after hosting the Royal Variety Performance.

The comedian fronted this year's event at the Royal Albert Hall.

However, he made an awkward joke aimed at Prince William and his wife Kate who were watching from the royal box, leaving ITV viewers divided.

The 45-year-old made the mischievous joke at the Cambridge's during his hosting stint after Alan complimented the Duchess on her dazzling green gown.

The comedian has been married to his husband Paul Drayton since 2018.

Alan was quick to tell Prince William: "Sir, I am sure you do not know who I am.

“But I am not hitting on your wife."

The royal couple laughed away as they were poked fun at.

Fans were left divided on social media by the risky joke made at the duo's expense.

One fan said: “FFS! This is unbearable. How did Alan Carr get the job? What an unfunny, embarrassment he is. Even his parents are squirming. #RoyalVarietyPerformance.”

Another commented: “@RoyalVariety blimey didn't realise how funny Alan Carr isn’t. This is so boring.”

“Who the feck booked Alan Carr for #TheRoyalVarietyPerformance? His jokes are as old as Rod Stewart’s hairstyle," said a third.

Alan has previously admitted to worrying about saying the wrong thing while hosting in front of the royal family.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, he said: "Oh, of course, you worry. My mum and dad were there as well, it was just so stressful."

Despite the comedian being worried, other fans praised the presenter for his jokes throughout the ITV performance which was aired last night.

One wrote: “I think Alan Carr is doing a fab job hosting the show. Well done @chattyman #RoyalVarietyPerformance.”

Another penned: “I’ve not enjoyed the talent portion of the #RoyalVarietyPerformance but Alan Carr has been fantastic as a host.”

Another agreed: “Haha. Whats going on with the audience…Alan Carr's jokes are so funny but they aren't laughing #RoyalVarietyPerformance.”

“Not an Alan Carr fan, but he has made me smile tonight.#RoyalVarietyPerformance,” said another fan.
