A new BBC documentary about the trio has been denounced by the royal family.

Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace and Clarence House issued a collective reply to the makers of The Princes and the Press, broadcast in Britain last night, November 22.

The show featured interviews, mainly with journalists, who discussed rumored leaks from within Kensington Palace, including about whether Meghan Markle was difficult to work for.

How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Compare to William and Kate in U.K. Poll

  How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Compare to William and Kate in U.K. Poll Only one of the four young royals is disliked by a majority of the British public, according to polling conducted for Newsweek.The Duchess of Sussex is viewed negatively by 51 percent of U.K. adults, making her significantly more unpopular than other royals of her generation.

The palace response read: "A free, responsible and open Press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy.

"However, too often overblown and unfounded claims from unnamed sources are presented as facts and it is disappointing when anyone, including the BBC, gives them credibility."

It comes after Prince William in May accused the BBC of fuelling Princess Diana's "fear, paranoia and isolation" in her final years.

The Duke of Cambridge made his statement in response to an independent inquiry that found journalist Martin Bashir faked financial records to suggest Diana's staff had betrayed her as part of a campaign to persuade her into giving a now famous BBC Panorama interview.

Bashir stepped down from his role as the BBC's religion editor in May, with the corporation citing "ongoing health issues."

Prince Harry and Prince William's Troubled Relationship Exposed in Bombshell Documentary

  Prince Harry and Prince William's Troubled Relationship Exposed in Bombshell Documentary Prince Harry and Prince William's royal rift is being examined in a new documentary which has already ruffled feathers at the palace prior to broadcast.The Princes And The Press is due to be broadcast on Britain's BBC 2 Monday night and will look in detail at the the two royals and their dealings with the media.

Part one of the new documentary charted Harry and William's dealings with the media from 2012 through to the end of 2018.

Much of the focus was on how the media reacted to Meghan and Harry's relationship, including a period when anonymous sources quoted in the British press suggested Meghan was difficult to work for.

Omid Scobie, the co-author of Meghan and Harry biography Finding Freedom, told the latest BBC documentary: "There's been rumor for quite some time that a lot of the most damaging and negative stories about Harry and Meghan that have ended up in the pages of the press have come from other royal households or from other royal aides or courtiers and from my own reporting and research that is exactly true."

Meghan's lawyer, Jenny Afia, told the two-part series that stories in which Meghan was nicknamed "duchess difficult" were false.

Camilla Tominey, associate editor of The Daily Telegraph, told the documentary: "We were getting briefings that all was not well with the relationship between William and Harry, Meghan and Kate and the relationship between Harry and Meghan and the royal household."

The Queen's Problems Are a Prelude to the Crisis Awaiting a Newly Crowned King Charles

  The Queen's Problems Are a Prelude to the Crisis Awaiting a Newly Crowned King Charles God save the Queen—because it looks like it could be a royal mess for the family once Elizabeth II is gone.As it happened, Louis was also one of the last Bourbon kings of France before the Revolution swept away his great-great-great-grandson Louis XVI. When the last chorus of "God Save the Queen" is sung, the British throne will pass to Elizabeth's first-born son, Charles, the brooding, diffident Prince of Wales, who has never escaped the shadow of his sainted ex-wife, Diana.

She added: "If you're suddenly hearing a lot of chatter about things not being well behind palace gates you sort of take it seriously because normally everything's levelled off and things are played down.

"You hear a little bit of chatter and then you go and investigate further and you hear more chatter, that suggests something is going down."

The documentary also examined an article in The Sun newspaper which suggested Queen Elizabeth II was dragged into a dispute with Harry and Meghan over which tiara the then soon-to-be duchess would wear on her wedding day.

Dan Wootton, who wrote the story and is now a presenter on GB News, told the BBC: "It actually took about six months for it to get out after the wedding. So, when people like to say, 'oh, the press, you were going for Harry and Meghan, you had it in for Harry and Meghan,' I completely disagree.

"It was actually these people behind the scenes who started to get annoyed before anything was in the public domain."

He added: "At that point no national newspaper had dared to really dive into this huge war that was developing behind the scenes.

  Private Investigator Apologizes for 'Robbing' Prince Harry of His 'Normal Teenage Years' Gavin Burrows admitted to targeting Harry's former girlfriend Chelsy Davy, hacking her phone and going through her medical recordsA private investigator said he was part of a "ruthless" media culture that "robbed" Prince Harry of a normal life.

"Part of it was that no one in the royal rota was prepared to break this story either. So it did take someone like me to come in as an outsider and actually say 'no, no, I'm going to do it.' So we dipped our toe in I guess."
