A journalist who made a BBC documentary about Princes William and Harry has apologized for past insults against 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 roles of William and his wife Catherine as a “complete fraud”.
“In regards to very reasonable questions about some ridiculous comments from a previous life, I would like to say I am deeply sorry for that,” Rajan wrote on Twitter Thursday about things he wrote in the columns for the daily. independent books. “I wrote things that were rude and immature and now I come back to them with shame, honestly wondering what I was thinking.”
Apologies in another tweet. “I would like to apologize for any offense these comments caused at the time or now. I support impartiality and hope that our recent shows will be judged on their merits.”
Rajan recently presented the documentary The Princess 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, delivered to the BBC for broadcast, the royals said they value the freedom of the press, but regret that news from anonymous sources is often 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 Catherine can be seen on the ITV commercial at the end of December.
