Since its release at the beginning of the week, the documentary “The princes and the press” has never ceased to be talked about. And for good reason. While rumors of feuds between Prince William and Prince Harry have never ceased since the Megxit, notably with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s television interview with Oprah Winfrey, the BBC lifts the veil on a program dedicated to the relations of the two brothers with the media. Enough to raise a new wave of speculation across the Channel. Shortly after the first of two parts aired, the British royal family opted to step up to the plate by publicly denouncing the information in the documentary. “Too often exaggerated and baseless claims from anonymous sources are presented as fact and it is disappointing that anyone, including the BBC, gives them credibility,” said Queen Elisabeth II, through of Buckingham Palace, Prince Charles, via Clarence House, and Prince William (Kensington Palace) in a statement. A position that Prince Harry did not choose to follow, he who had however already denounced the media pressure against his couple with Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry in agreement with the BBC?
A silence which, for many, could be linked to the fact that Prince Harry supports “The princes and the press”. Indeed, as the « Daily Mail », the documentary portrays an unflattering image of Prince Charles and Prince William and highlights the Duke of Sussex and his wife, including looking back on the pressure and media relentlessness they have had to face since their union in May 2018 “The end of the documentary is always what you remember and they chose to use Meghan’s lawyer to say that she was not a bully and that it was wonderful to work with her. This is where you get the gist of what happened, in my opinion. It’s very biased. Anti William, anti Charles and pro Meghan and Harry ”, explains Prince Harry’s biographer to the“ Daily Mail ”. The second part of the documentary will be broadcast on November 29 and according to the first rumors, it may concern the use of the media by the two princes and should therefore not ease tensions.
