ITV Makes Late Edit To Prince Harry & Prince William Documentary After Kensington Palace Rebuttal07/05/2021
ITV made a late edit to its fast-turnaround documentary on Prince Harry and Prince William’s strained relationship after a warning from Kensington Palace.
ITV and producer Spun Gold removed comments from Omid Scobie, in which the Harper’s Bazaar royal editor alleged that Prince William’s office briefed newspapers about concerns regarding Prince Harry’s mental health.
In a rough cut of the documentary, titled Harry and William: What Went Wrong?, Scobie alleged that Prince William’s team planted the story after Prince Harry told journalist Tom Bradby in 2019 that he and his brother were “on different paths.”
After being offered a right of reply, Deadline understands that Kensington Palace warned ITV and Spun Gold that the claim was potentially defamatory. Subsequently, the reference to mental health was removed ahead of Sunday’s broadcast. Scobie’s claims about Kensington Palace briefing remained in the film, however.
Harry and William: What Went Wrong? was watched by 1.9M viewers on Sunday night.
