BBC shelves Meghan and Harrys podcast after countless complaints: report

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's podcast - which was due to follow on from The Princes and the Press programme - has been delayed by the network after a barrage of complaints.

The BBC has delayed the podcast after receiving a barrage of complaints over the two-part documentary on two royal brothers, which aired last month, according to The Sun.

The programme, which explores William and Harry’s fracturing relationship, has been blasted by the royal household for giving credibility to “overblown and unfounded claims”.

The documentary reportedly caused uproar amongst the royal household who have threatened to boycott the BBC.

Some fans and viewers also complained that it was “disrespectful to the Royal Family”, and with the podcast supposedly having even more controversial content, it is not known when it might be released.

A BBC spokesperson was reported to have said: "As we have said very clearly before, the podcast is still in production and will be released as a box set when it’s ready."
