The Palace and The Press - Part 2 - Media law lecturer

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have cited their treatment by the press as one of the reasons for their move to Canada and withdrawal from their roles as full time working royals.

To get a new perspective on the media coverage, and discuss how the royal family are covered more broadly, Pod Save The Queen host Ann Gripper (@anngripper) has invited two external experts to give their views.

In this episode she talks to Carole Watson (LinkedIn profile), senior lecturer in media law at the University of Sunderland who spent 25 years working in journalism. Recorded after the Sandringham summit but before the Sussexes' independence deal was reached, they discuss legal action taken by the royal family in the past, where the legal line lies and how the media covers the royal family.
