Mr Low told presenter Amol Rajan: “These people, I know, two and a half years later, when I’m writing this story — some of them were in tears.

“They were still severely psychologically traumatised. So, something went badly wrong.”

However lawyer Jenny Afia, of legal firm Schillings, said in the documentary: “There were massive inaccuracies in that story.”

She added: “It’s hard to prove a negative. If you haven’t bullied someone, how do you show you haven’t?”

What did the Royal Family say about the documentary?

Following the episode, a statement from the royal family aired on screen.

It read: “A free, responsible and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy.

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