Notably, Tom Bradby is the presenter. Are we to conclude that he’s taken over from Sir Trevor and Sir Alastair as the Royals’ preferred “go-to” person within the TV News community?


Are you referring to Sir Alastair Burnett who is no longer with us or Mr Stewart who is overdue an upgrade from his OBE?

Their H RH’s recent trip to Africa will be shown on ITV on Sunday.


Pre-order your tautology now.

Indeed, I believe TRH is the accepted terminology

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may be mid-tier Royals, but there's huge public interest in both of them.

Id hardly say Harry was a mid tier royal. Him and William are very popular and I would say are in the highest tiers other than the one occupied by The Queen herself.

I'd much rather watch an hour of Harry and Meghan than an hour of bloody Gemma Collins. At least the former serves a purpose.

One of the clips from tonight’s show has 28 million views on Twitter, so I’d say there is some interest...

Man has occasional disagreements with his brother”.

In the context of the ordinary masses, this is nothing. However, given it’s the Windsors, this is quite a scoop for ITN.

I didn’t see the documentary, obviously, but only the reaction on Twitter, which has been fairly mixed.

I wait the results from the TVF Jury to truly know how it went.

Notable tonight's Royal doc on ITV about Charles was a BBC Studios production. Certainly the first time I've seen an endcap saying it's a BBC production for ITV.

It was BBC Studios' first commission by ITV:

There are reports from some outlets (citing a source close to Prince Andrew) suggesting that the Duke of York is contemplating giving a follow-up interview to remedy some of the gaps/failings of the first one! (My words, not theirs).

In which case, who would we like to see doing it? Emily Maitlis again?

Another Prince Andrew interview? That first one was an absolute car crash, a second one could a train wreck by comparison.

If HRH wants to be such a glutton for punishment, maybe the next interview could take place on The Andrew Neil Show.

Shame on every news outlet for not phrasing the announcement *exactly* like this!
