    Queen ‘upset’ as royals ‘threaten BBC boycott’ over warring William and Harry programme

    The Queen is said to be 'upset' over a new BBC documentary about alleged warring between members of the Royal Family .

    The Palace is reportedly angry with the corporation who are said to have refused to let it watch The Princes And The Press before it is aired on BBC2 on Monday.

    It is claimed the programme will hint that William and Harry – or their advisers – planted smears against each other in the media.

    According to the Mail on Sunday the Palace has warned it will no longer co-operate with future BBC projects unless it is given a right to respond.

    The three most senior Royals are said to have joined together to complain to the BBC and allegedly carry out a ‘tri-household’ boycott if it goes ahead with the programme without letting courtiers see it first.

    A source slammed the documentary as ‘tittle-tattle’ and the row over seeing a preview has left the 95-year-old Monarch 'upset'.

    They told the Mail on Sunday: "There is upset about it. The households are all united in thinking this is not fair. No one at the Palace has seen it."

    The BBC says the two-part programme will provide ‘context’ for Princes William and Harry’s relationship with the media and will be presented by Amol Rajan.

    The siblings are said to want a right to reply and successfully united to block the same allegation from appearing in another documentary earlier this year.

    An ITV documentary called 'Harry And William: What Went Wrong?' was forced to axe claims by Omid Scobie, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s biographer, that William and his staff had leaked a story about Harry’s mental health.

    Media speculation about a deterioration in the siblings' relationship was rife for more than a year before Harry revealed there was a rift during a tour of South Africa in 2019.

    During the trip Meghan Markle told ITV’s Tom Bradby that no one in the Royal Family had asked if she was ‘OK’ with her new role.

    Harry candidly said: "We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and I know he will always be there for me.

    "We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we are so busy but I love him dearly.

    "The majority of stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days."

    While the princes are said to disagreed on many issues they have supported each other when it comes to their press operations.

    Both have vehemently denied claims that each office was briefing the media against the other.

    This isn't the first time there have been problems between the BBC and the Royal Family.

    In May, William attacked the corporation after its failings on the Martin Bashir interview with his late mum Princess Diana, were exposed.

    The BBC were also forced to say sorry to the Queen in 2007 after admitting it ‘misrepresented’ her by suggesting she stormed out of a photoshoot.

    Advance publicity for the programme says it will document the years in which the Cambridges and the Sussexes ‘have charted very different courses in their relationship with the media’.

    A BBC spokesman told the Mail on Sunday: "The programme is about how royal journalism is done and features a range of journalists from broadcast and the newspaper industry."

    A spokeswoman for the Queen told the Mirror they will not be commenting.
