Monday night on The Daily Show, host John Oliver mocked CNN’s royal contributor over comments she made about Prince William and his wife Kate’s first child.

“This is how brilliant a royal Kate is,” Victoria Arbiter told CNN. “There are women throughout British royal family history that have panicked over not being able to deliver a boy, and here we are, Kate did it first time.”

The statement perplexed Oliver.

“You are aware that she is married to Prince William and not Khal Drogo, aren’t you?” he remarked. “What would your response have been if it had been a girl? Damnation upon your cursed womb, Katherine. Burn the princess, for she has produced a baby of the weaker sex. Burn them both!”

Oliver wasn’t the only one perplexed by her comments. Numerous news outlets also mocked Arbiter. On Twitter, she said her comment “was tongue in cheek.”
