But it's the caption that has divided critics and caused an ongoing debate among his six million Instagram followers: "Looks like his ironing and washing is sorted when he gets older."

While some have accused him of being sexist, others have jumped to his defence, saying it was a lighthearted comment meant in good spirits.
