Joel Dommett makes blunder as he introduces King Charles wrong at NTAs

Joel Dommett appeared to make a blunder as he hosted the 2022 National Television Awards on 14 October.

The comedian, 37, mistakenly introduced King Charles III by his former Royal title, the Prince of Wales, and many viewers were quick to pick up on Joel's faux pas.

"As if he just introduced him as Prince of Wales…. he's the King of England #NTAs," one person wrote on social media, as another added: "Joel just introduced King Charles as the Prince Of Wales? #NTA #Emmerdale."

A third viewer said: “Joel shouldn’t you of said King Charles? Not Prince of Wales. #NTAs.”

Joel introduced Charles as he had recorded a special video message to celebrate 50 years of ITV soap Emmerdale.

The King made a surprise appearance on Thursday's NTAs where he shared his unexpected love of the hit soap, and appeared in a pre-recorded video taken earlier this year.

The video was recorded when Charles was still Prince of Wales, which Joel did later point out as he addressed his mistake.

The monarch, 73, spoke about how "special" Emmerdale is and praised the ITV soap in the clip.

“I'm delighted to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Emmerdale and I am afraid I am so old that I can remember when it was called Emmerdale farm, owned by the Sugdens.

“It is a testament to all the hard work of the production team that has become such an important British institution and major British export with hundreds of thousands of fans from Scandinavia to New Zealand all keen to follow the fortunes of what is left of the Sugdens and their newer neighbours.

“What makes Emmerdale so special is that it has kept true to the vision of its original writer Kevin Laffan who wanted to demonstrate that farming is not just a job, it's a whole way of life," King Charles said.

He continued: “On a daily basis, Emmerdale continues to depict what life is really like for those who work the land and protect our precious countryside. It also stresses brilliantly something that concerns me greatly, the long time sustainability of the way we produce our food."

He concluded his message by praising the production team and their sustainability efforts, before congratulating Emmerdale on 50 years on screen.

Charles said: “I'm also heartened by the production team's efforts off-screen, their ambition to achieve net zero by 2030 has already made Emmerdale one of the first British programme to be awarded ALBERT certification to reduce its impact of the production process and create content that stresses the importance of establishing a sustainable future.

“So it is only right that the National Television Awards acknowledge the enormous contribution Emmerdale has made and I hope those watching will join me in sending our warmest congratulations on its 50th birthday, and wishing it an equally successful future.”
