Lara Spencer is speaking out about some controversial remarks she made during Friday’s Good Morning America regarding the future King of England. During a segment about Prince George‘s curriculum, Spencer mocked the six-year-old royal’s budding interest in ballet.

“In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things,” Spencer said, holding for (and seemingly encouraging) laughter from the audience.

Spencer later took to Instagram to explain herself: “My sincere apologies for an insensitive comment I made in pop news yesterday,” she wrote. “From ballet to anything one wants to explore in life, I say GO FOR IT. I fully believe we should all be free to pursue our passions. Go climb your mountain-and love every minute of it.”
