A US TV host has mocked Prince George after news surfaced that he would be attending weekly ballet classes.

Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer was discussing the future king’s new school curriculum when she said: “The future king of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on Religious Studies, computer programming poetry and ballet among other things.”

She then went on to say: “Prince William says George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you Prince William, we’ll see how long that lasts.”

While the comments were well received with the in-studio audience, several celebrities and online personalities have come forward dubbing her comments “rude” and “outdated”.

Lara Spencer has since issued an apology on Instagram.

“My sincere apologies for an insensitive comment I made in pop news yesterday. From ballet to anything one wants to explore in life, I say GO FOR IT. I fully believe we should all be free to pursue our passions. Go climb your mountain-and love every minute of it,” she wrote.
