//Royal carol concert offered to ITV after BBC documentary dispute…. The strained relationship between the Royal Family and the BBC follows the broadcast of The Princes and the Press, hosted by the corporation's media editor Amol Rajan.

The first episode of the two-part series aired on Monday and examined Prince William and Prince Harry's relationship with the media. It featured interviews with journalists including Andrew Marr, Ian Hislop, Dan Wootton and Camilla Tominey, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's biographer Omid Scobie and the couple's lawyer Jenny Afia…. In response to the documentary, the royal households issued a joint statement, featured in the programme, which criticised the BBC for giving credibility to "overblown and unfounded claims".//

They also had issues with The Crown on Netflix
Would appear they 'warned' the BBC prior to the programme being aired.

I think the love affair with "Auntie" is over for most people. Except those who syphon up our dosh by working there. They certainly still love themselves.
It’s time this bias network was scrapped anyway ( the BBC)
I am not sure if it is the Family themselves, or those appointed to protect their image.

In any event, the BBC has not covered itself with glory - again.

I think the problem I encountered when I used to freelance at the BBC is the same now as it was then - they live in an atmosphere where they believe they are so superior and untouchable, that they act accordingly, and that attitude will only increase until some robust accountability is put in place - commensurate with a broadcast that is publicly funded, but acts like an untouchable enclave.
The trouble is that people lap the stuff up and think its all true. The Crown is a drama, noone really knows what goes on in other households beit royal or you and me.
The Crown was fictionalised and not on the BBC. The Princes and the Press is a documentary. They don't seem to have specified what elements were "overblown and unfounded" and I suspect they're true but embarrassing. In which case, good for the BBC.
Some of us did not allow our young children to stay up late and record tv programmes without supervision. Different cultures have different attitudes to such things though perhaps.
^^Sorry wrong thread.
I think quite a lot of us, the viewers, have fallen out of love with the BBC.

Togo/MW, I think you’re right.
yeah will Williams x mas card to harry bear the legend

yeah you were right about the media much luv WIlls and katya?

It might
I think the rot set in when Nicholas Witchell was royal correspondent.
Was it at Kloisters where Charles and his sons were posing for pictures that they said some very uncomplimentary things about him?
they never dared to bad-mouth that nice Jenny Bond, but I imagine the boys are still seething over Martin Bashir. Rightly so, but it was some time ago.
The BBC has traditionally been a fawning and toadying commentator on the doings of the royals. If they're starting to be more objective, then good, but obviously they won't get the cooperation they've enjoyed thus far.
