Royal Family really not happy with new documentary’s ‘unfounded claims’.

The first episode covers the events following Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 up to the Sussexes’ 2018 wedding. At first, the media seemed excited about a new generation of royals, but over time began to sour on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Reports on the couple became increasingly racist and misogynistic in a way that was never a problem for the Cambridges.

“William and Harry’s relationship with the media was formed fundamentally from their childhood and their experiences of their mother’s relationship with the media,” royal contributor Victoria Murphy details in the documentary. “And that has absolutely shaped everything about how they both see the media. But we’ve seen as they both get older, how that’s manifested itself in different ways and the different paths that they have taken.”

The film examines some of the illegal activities, like hacking and wire tapping, that landed the press in hot water in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and how these activities were used to target members of the Royal Family.

The first episode also details some of the competition between the royal households, and journalists share how quickly members of the Royal Family turn on each other. Many of the film’s interviewees share how willing the various households are to leak unflattering information to the press.

“I think at the best of times, the palace is a nest of vipers and there’s always a bit of backbiting going on,” Richard Palmer of the Daily Express says in the film.

As of this writing, The Princes and the Press is not available for streaming or viewing (as yet) in Canada.
