The fuss started final weekend, when information broke that Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and Prince Charles had mixed to threaten the BBC with a tri-household boycott over a brand new documentary, entitled The Princes and the Press. The movie, it was reported, would declare that their places of work had briefed towards Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to undermine them as their plans to depart the British monarchy grew to become public.
The palace had used related ways earlier within the yr to efficiently get an ITV documentary, Harry and William: What Went Fallacious to withdraw a claim that William’s staff planted a narrative questioning Harry’s psychological well being because the Sussex exit unfolded.
However the BBC wouldn’t be cowed. The broadcast went ahead Monday evening, introduced by the company’s media editor Amol Rajan, with half two due subsequent Monday. The primary episode didn’t go into element on the allegations; the second episode follows this Monday—neither have been seen pre-broadcast by the royals or their aides, though the BBC reportedly provided the palace a proper of reply.
