Royal family denounces “disappointing” Doc’s “unfounded claims”


Royal family speak out on new BBC documentary Two The princes and the press.

According to Standard Evening, a joint statement from Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace aired at the end of the show, which aired on Monday, November 22.

“A free, responsible and open press is of vital importance for a healthy democracy,” the statement said, according to the newspaper. “However, too often it is exaggerated and unfounded claims by anonymous sources that are presented as fact and it is disappointing that anyone, including the BBC, gives them credibility.”

The two-part series examines the years in which Prince william and Prince harry have, as the BBC puts it, “charted very different paths in their relationship with the media”. It is brought to you by BBC Media Editor Amol Rajan, who has shared his own opinions on the royal family and its coverage in the past. In a 2012 column for The independent, for example, he called the monarchy “absurd” and wrote “journalists are so duped by aristocratic wealth that they can only present a spurious image to their audience. In other words, they substitute propaganda where journalism should be. “
