A tweet which was later deleted showed an image of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee, which is dressed in clothes, alongside the caption: “Royal baby leaves hospital”.

Baker labelled the tweet an “enormous mistake, for sure,” adding: “Anyway, here’s to ya Archie, Sorry mate.” “Would have used same stupid pic for any other Royal birth or Boris Johnson kid or even one of my own. It’s a funny image. (Though not of course in that context.)” he wrote.
