The royal family vetoed the use of the video of Elizabeth II’s funeral KXan 36 Daily News

As part of a media deal, the royal family was given the right to demand that certain images from the memorial service at Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle no longer be used in the media. Royal staff sent messages to the BBC (blocked on RF), ITV News and Sky News during the event, time-stamping images they wanted excluded from future press releases and social media clips. As a result, five short videos featuring members of the royal family were withdrawn from circulation.

Although the clips were relatively short, the royal family’s decision to veto what footage could be used caused concern among some journalists working on coverage of the monarch’s funeral. In his view, this allows the royal family to shape news coverage and content.

The palace provided guidance on what images and photographs would be considered acceptable, with a specific request not to show the pain of individual members of the royal family. Other parts of the video, such as the man throwing himself on the Queen’s coffin while in Westminster Hall, should also not be used by broadcasters from now on. An unedited “live” broadcast of the funeral will be allowed for one month on select podcasts that are available to a limited audience. However, according to British television sources, talks will be held with Buckingham Palace about which parts of the ceremony may be shown on future programmes.
