Palace v Palace

The Daily Mail has wheeled out the Royal brains of Richard Kay and Geoffrey Levy to explain the background to the pulling of Steve Hewlett's two-part BBC documentary "Reinventing the Royals".

Basically their thesis is that it exposes old (and maybe continuing) antagonism between the spin teams at Buckingham Palace and Clarence House - and may allude to some briefings designed to lower reputations, rather than enhance them. They claim the Charles side was spooked when the title of the programmes was changed from "Monarchy and The Media", and say the apparent concern over the use of some archive footage may be a red herring, seized on by lawyers to get time for a re-think.
