Furthermore, a source told The Sun: “It’s unbelievable that in the middle of a major fight with William and the Royal Family over its documentary, the BBC would allow Netflix to film on their property.

“The BBC and Netflix are joining forces to do the one thing William doesn’t want – dramatising the Panorama interview. It is a part of his life he has said he does not wish to revisit.”

Royal feud with the BBC

Meanwhile, the reports follow shortly after the Royal family addressed the recent BBC Two documentary.

The two-part special explores Prince William and Prince Harry‘s relationship with the media.

They said: “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.”
