Almost a year later and I came across this little nugget. The BBC was acting on behalf of Clarence House and imposing restrictions as to the use of the footage.

Quote
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) was forced to cancel The Chaser’s alternative coverage of the wedding after the BBC threatened to withdraw its feed from the national broadcaster if it did not stop the programme. The BBC was apparently responding to directions from Clarence House, the private office of the Prince of Wales.

Quote
One of The Chaser’s founders, Dominic Knight, wrote on the ABC website: “Intellectual property law recognises that some properties should, by their nature, be in the public domain (...) A large proportion of the cost of the wedding is being paid for by the (British) public (...) Australian law recognises the value of parody and satire in a democracy by exempting it from copyright restrictions.”

Sounds like the Palace had a sense-of-humour bypass and went into North Korean Broadcasting Guidelines instead.

I bet when the public is distracted with the Olympics and the jubilee, they release a new Lese-majesty law  spy
For each Charles joke 1 year jail, for each Waitey joke 50 hours of community service etc.  tehe

The Palace wouldn't have to worry about this stuff if in fact, the RF behaved like ROYALTY!

The only reason it works in Thailand is because the King acts like a king, not an entertainer; it only goes to show me that the RF cares about the RF, not about the nation and not about their reputations even. It will be impossible to push a law through, even with HM at the top, since the Brits are particularly testy about free speech and the RF has so cheapened itself to the point where not even the most devoted monarchist can really see these things with the same reverance as they used to.

I found something interesting last week, in the news. Prince Charles hired a BBC News editor as Private Secretary for Wales.

3rd April 2012

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have appointed BBC Wales’s Dr Grahame Davies as new senior adviser for their work in Wales, following the departure of Dr Manon Williams, after twelve years of Royal service.

Dr Davies, who is currently the Editor of Multimedia Newsgathering at BBC Wales, is also a published author and critic.

As the new Assistant Private Secretary, Grahame will be the senior adviser on Wales at Clarence House, organizing and attending all of Their Royal Highnesses’ Welsh visits, together with drafting speeches, preparing briefings and dealing with all related correspondence. He will spend two days each week working in Wales and three days at Clarence House.
Dr Davies will be taking up his new post in May 2012.

They think because this guy will work for them and he's from the press  suddendly a few well written statements out in public and possibly fake PR to make the public believe everything good that's written about the RF.You know the public pretty soon will be ticked off with this fam that's already dangling this is not the stoneage era dirt always leaks out somehow.
