The BBC has decided to delay a controversial podcast about Meghan and Harry after claiming that an accompanying TV series received more than 900 complaints.

The Harry, Meghan, and the Media podcast was meant to be a follow-up from The Princes and the Press documentary.

But hundreds of viewers complained that it was “disrespectful to the Royal Family” leading the BBC to delay the podcast.

In the BBC Two documentary, presented by Amol Rajan, allegations were aired that William’s staff had been briefed against the Sussexes, The Sun reports.

The Firm slammed the show for “unfounded claims”. The Sun also reported that the podcast was due to contain far more controversial material.

The podcast will now be released on an unconfirmed later date.

In other news, the rift between the Dukes of Sussex and Cambridge is said to have widened according to a journalist who has written a book about the pair. Harry and Wills are believed not to be on speaking on terms due to one Royal brother ignoring the other’s phone calls.

The brothers were seen talking at St George’s Chapel on the way back out of the ceremony more than 200 days ago and appeared to exchange words on the grounds of Kensington Palace in July during a statue unveiling in tribute to Diana.

But now Christopher Anderson has told the Daily Beast: “William isn’t returning Harry’s calls.”

His new book, Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan, lays bare the relationship between the Royals formerly dubbed the Fab Four.

Anderson’s latest claim comes after the BBC’s two-part documentary, The Princes and the Press, which explored tensions between the Sussexes and Cambridges as well as their respective relationships with the media.

Meghan and Harry gave birth to their second child, Lilibet, in June this year after sensationally leaving the UK when they stepped down from senior royal duties.

And the controversy surrounding the Windsors shows little sign of abating, with Anderson raking over some uncomfortable ground in his new work.

A BBC spokesperson 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.”

The Beeb denied claims that the delay of the podcast was connected to complaints about The Princes and the Press documentary.
