There are few things more popular than a televised royal wedding event, making it the perfect occasion for some awkward subtitles and/or human error.
Princess Eugenie’s wedding, which took place this morning, had more guests and probably cost more than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day. Still, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding had much more attention than today’s wedding. It’s not Eugenie’s fault. America has been obsessed with William and Harry since they were born; add a Hollywood celebrity into the mix and it’s ratings dynamite.
Despite the “unpopularity” of this royal wedding, the event is still something that people will watch, making it very embarrassing for the BBC channel and the poor commentator when the subtitle software confused the word dress with breasts. It’s a similar word but what are the odds?

To make matters even worse, or better depending on which side of the screen you are, the commentator elaborates on how well the breasts/dress fit on princess Eugenie.
Someone on the BBC channel is having a really bad day.

Hey @BBCNews you got Borat doing the subtitles?
