What next?

Just returning to Newsnight and Emily Maitlis getting HM the Queen and Prince Philip's marriage date wrong by ten years (saying - twice - that it was 1937), Samira Ahmed's Newswatch featured the following comment from a viewer called Cedric. (And it made Samira chuckle too).
No. The year was 1947. Surely it should have been apparent that Princess Elizabeth would not have married at the age of 11? Who checks facts? And surely Emily Maitlis's common sense should have told her that none of this could be be true? 
What next? An article about Prince Charles visiting the troops on the Western Front?
