BBC viewers notice presenter made outfit blunder during Queen coverage

BBC viewers spotted an outfit blunder by one of the presenters during its coverage of the Queen's death. See if you can spot it below:

Queen Elizabeth II passed away last Thursday, 8 September, aged 96, having spent 70 years on the British throne.

The UK has been in mourning ever since, with many news anchors changing into black clothing in line with the dress code for the death of a Royal Family member.

However, viewers of today's (14 September) BBC Breakfast programme noticed that one presenter didn't get the memo.

Tim Muffett had been reporting from Lambeth Bridge in London while speaking to people queuing to pay their respects to the Queen as she lies in state at Westminster Hall.

But rather than donning the obligatory black suit and tie, he wore a grey suit and a blue tie. Earlier this week, his outfit featured a purple tie during a similar segment in which he spoke to mourners.

People were quick to point out the fashion faux pas and question why Muffett wasn't in the same clothing as his colleagues.

As said by one Twitter user: "@BBCBreakfast please could you tell me why Tim Moffat [sic] isn’t wearing a dark tie?"

"Tim! Wheres the black tie?" said another, while a third wrote: "Tim Muffet - black tie??"

A fourth chimed in: "Throughout this sad time he’s not worn black. I’ve often wondered quite why. @BBCBreakfast #QueenElizabeth."

While a fifth commented: "@BBCBreakfast @timmuffett seems to be exempt from wearing a black tie? My understanding is that it’s not an optional or personal thing but a prescribed requirement.

"If it’s about money, I’ll ante up the twenty quid for a tie for him!"

LADbible has contacted Tim Muffett for a comment.

Coverage continues to focus on the Queen and her successor King Charles III ahead of the funeral at Westminster Abbey on 19 September at 11.00am.

In the aftermath of her passing, the 73-year-old shared a brief statement in which he thanked his mother for her 70 years of service.

He wrote: "The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.

"We mourn profoundly the loss of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved Mother.

"I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.

"During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held."
