Kate and William ‘right to hit back’ at BBC as Royal Family rows with broadcaster


KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have a “right” to show their disapproval towards the BBC for broadcasting a controversial documentary, Carole Malone claimed.

Jeremy Vine panellist Carole Malone defended Kate and William’s decision to distance their project from the BBC, welcoming their “hitting back” at the broadcaster after a year of intense public scrutiny.

Ms Malone said: “I’m sorry, Harry and Meghan have slated the Royal Family.

“They have said they are racist. They have said that the Queen was a bad parent. They’ve said Charles was a bad parent.

They have a right to hit back and I’m really glad they’re doing it.”

Co-panellist Matthew Stadlen however slammed the move as “undignified” for Kate and William.

Mr Stadlen said: “Well, what I can say about William is I have a huge amount of respect for someone who has worked in the areas that he’s worked in, he’s flown helicopters.

“I have a huge amount of respect for what Harry’s done, in going on to the front lines in Afghanistan.

“I have to say on this story, I think it would have been bigger of William and Kate not to ban the BBC if they actually have done. It’s undignified Carole.

“He’s the future King of England and this is the national broadcaster.”

“But this isn’t a way to hit back, we wouldn’t believe in cancel culture, what I would suggest is get William and say ‘Let’s do an interview’.”

Kate’s Christmas concert will now be broadcast on ITV.

Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, and Clarence House said in their joint statement to the BBC: “Free, responsible and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy.”

The royal advisors believe the Queen, Prince Charles, and William have not been offered a chance to review the documentary in advance.

The second episode will examine the period between 2018 to 2021, described as “a tumultuous time for the royals that includes the birth of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and the royal tours of the Sussexes and the Cambridges.”
