Police have dropped an investigation into broadcaster Danny Baker over an allegedly racist tweet about the royal baby.
Baker was sacked from BBC Radio 5 Live for tweeting a joke about the Duke and Duchess Of Sussex’s son featuring a picture of a chimpanzee.
His tweet came on the day Harry and Meghan, who is African-American, welcomed their first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
Scotland Yard said the force had received an allegation in relation to a tweet posted on May 8 but confirmed on Wednesday it would take no further action.
A statement said: “An allegation was received by the Metropolitan Police Service on Thursday 9 May in relation to a tweet published on 8 May.
“Having reviewed the comments made, we do not consider that a criminal threshold has been met and as such we will be taking no further action.”
Baker, 61, was accused of racism after tweeting a black and white image showing a well-dressed man and woman holding hands with a suited chimpanzee, which he captioned: “Royal baby leaves hospital.”
The DJ apologised for the tweet, saying it was an attempt to “lampoon privilege”.
