PropertyThe journalist who made a BBC documentary about Princes William, 39, and Harry, 37, has apologized for past insults to some members of the British royal family. Amol Rajan wrote an article in 2012 calling the deceased Prince Philip a “racist prankster” and describing the public role of William and his wife Kate Middleton, 39, as a “complete fraud”.
Rajan wrote on Twitter on Thursday about his comments in the columns of The Independent: “I’ve been getting a lot of questions about some ridiculous comments from a previous life. Well, I want to say I’m deeply sorry for that.” “I wrote things that were rude and immature, and I now look at them shyly, honestly wondering what I was thinking.”
Apologies in another tweet. And that’s for every insult these comments caused at that time or now. I support neutrality and hope that our recent programs will be judged on their merits.”
Rajan recently presented the documentary Princes and the Press, a two-way story about the relationship between British princes and the media. The royal family had asked if they could watch the production in advance, but the BBC did not respond. In a joint statement from Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace, members of the royal family said they value a free press, but it is also a shame that news from anonymous sources is presented as fact.
The broadcast of the documentary could have seriously upset the relationship between the BBC and the British royal family. For example, the Christmas party organized by William and Kate can be seen on the ITV commercial at the end of December.
