The British royal family cracked down on BBC documentaries

In a rare joint statement, the British royal family criticizes a documentary on the BBC that made allegations about Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan at a gala in New York. The couple has moved across the Atlantic and justified it, among other things, with the press’ coverage of them.

A statement from Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace, the courts representing Queen Elizabeth, Crown Prince Charles and Prince William, said the BBC documentary went too far.

The documentary series «The princes and the press» deals with how Prince Harry and William, the sons of Crown Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, have dealt with the press from their mother’s death in 1997 until today.

The BBC aired the first episode on Monday. There’s one coming next week.

The series suggests that Prince Harry in particular has developed a hostile relationship with the press, which was exacerbated by the coverage of his relationship with his wife, Duchess Meghan. There are also allegations that Duchess Meghan has created a difficult working relationship for court employees, which her lawyer rejects.

The Royal Family criticizes the BBC for not watching the documentary before it was broadcast.

– A free, responsible and open press is of critical importance for a healthy democracy. But too often inflated and unfounded information is presented as facts. It is a disappointment when someone, and especially the BBC, gives them credibility, the courts write.
