After William and Kate’s rejection, the BBC retaliated, saying that “not all of our shows will meet full agreement.”

THE BBC has retaliated after being snubbed by William and Kate, who chose ITV to broadcast their Christmas carol concert instead.

The BBC was banned from broadcasting a Christmas charity fundraiser hosted by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, but the rights will now go to ITV. The BBC was banned from broadcasting the Christmas concert in what is thought to be retaliation for its new documentary, which is still being debated.

The first part of a two-part documentary series titled ‘The Princes and the Press’ aired on BBC Two on Monday.

The relationship between Prince William, 39, and Prince Harry, 37, and the British media is the subject of a new documentary.

Following a request for comment from the BBC, Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace issued a joint statement.

“A free, responsible, and open press is vital to a healthy democracy,” the royal households say in a joint statement.

“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 royal carol concert will be broadcast in the run-up to Christmas, according to ITV, which confirmed the news on Wednesday.

According to ITV sources, the offer to take over the show was only made late last week.

“It was unusual for it to come to us this late,” one claimed.

The show is in addition to ITV’s usual Carols at Christmas offering, and no official placement in the festive schedule has been announced yet because contracts are still being finalized.

In response to the decision to air the concert with a different broadcaster, the BBC has issued a retaliatory statement.

Richard Sharp, the BBC’s chairman, hit back, saying that the broadcaster’s programs “may not always meet with full agreement” with other national institutions, including the royal family.

At the VLV Autumn Conference, Mr Sharp was asked about the decision to switch broadcasters.

“The BBC is a national institution, and we take great care and thought into our relationships with other national institutions,” he said.

“The royal family is at the heart of our national identity, and its significance is undeniable.”

He went on to say that the BBC has “tremendous respect for all aspects of the royal family,” before adding, “From time to time, this organization produces programs which may or may not be related to the royal family.”
