Buckingham Palace issues a rare statement in response to ‘unfounded’ claims made in a documentary about Prince Harry and William.
When it comes to BBC Two’s new documentary The Princes and the Press, Buckingham Palace is clearing the air.
According to E! News, Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace issued a joint statement regarding the documentary’s claims.
The royals addressed the “unfounded claims” that BBC Two chose to include in the program in their statement, which was included at the end of the documentary.
BBC Two shared a joint statement from Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace at the end of the documentary, which aired on Monday.
“A free, responsible, and open press is critical to a healthy democracy,” the statement read.
However, overblown and unfounded claims from anonymous sources are frequently presented as facts, and it’s disappointing when anyone, including the BBC, gives them credence.”
The Princes and the Press focuses on Prince William and Prince Harry’s interactions with the media.
The two-part special examined the years during which the two “charted very different courses of their relationship with the media.” The second part of the special will air on Monday, Nov.
29 and will concentrate on the years 2018 through 2021.
The second part will largely feature Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, because they will be focusing on that time period.
It will cover not only the birth of their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, but also the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal tours.
As royal watchers are aware, this program was released more than a year after Harry and Markle decided to leave the United Kingdom and the royal family due to the vitriol they faced on social media and from the country’s media.
The full description of the BBC Two special reads, “The film charts the years leading up to and including the engagement and marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
“To put the princes’ relationship with the media in context, the film looks at some of the illegal activities carried out by some newspapers in the late 1990s and early 2000s, such as hacking and ‘blagging,’ and how these techniques were used to target members of the royal family and their associates,” the BBC said.
