The Palace became infuriated when the BBC refused to show it content from The Princes And The Press first before it aired on BBC2. This is a film presented by Amol Rajan, a self-proclaimed Republican who called the monarchy absurd. Moreover, a series of meetings had already taken place between representatives of Prince William and the BBC according to a source at the Daily Mail. However, the BBC stuck to its positions and categorically refused to show the content of the documentary before it was released to the general public.
Still according to the source, this show would claim an “information war between William and Harry”. Reason why the 3 highest dignitaries of the royal family have united. This is a complaint to society, but Queen Elizabeth II, Princes Charles and William are also threatening to boycott the BBC. “Everyone is upset. Households are all united in thinking that it is not fair. No one at the Palace has seen it,” a source from the Palace told the Daily Mail.
A context based on William and Harry’s relationship with the media
Regarding the content of the documentary, the BBC says the program will be offered in 2 parts. He will speak in particular of the relationship between Princes William and Harry with the media. Certain allegations are particularly sensitive especially for the 2 princes, William and Harry. These include allegations that the princes ordered courtiers to slander the media.
Recall that the claims of Omid Scobie, biographer of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have already been deleted from the documentary Harry And William: What Went Wrong? The latter had been broadcast in prime time before broadcast on ITV last July. Omid Scobie notably claimed that Prince William and his staff leaked a story about Prince Harry’s mental health.
