Alan Titchmarsh gets angry when the Queen is called Her Royal Highness by the BBC… well, who doesn’t
Branding the BBC’s commentary as “inane”, he went on to say, “I haven’t blushed for a long time [but] sometimes I get angry.”
To Radio Times, he added, “I got very angry during the Diamond Jubilee coverage when the Queen was wrongly called ‘Her Royal Highness’ and presenters were vague on facts.
“One said the Queen has outlasted 12 prime ministers and ‘at least’ six American presidents.
“We all make mistakes but when somebody obviously hasn’t done their homework, that gets me a bit rattled.”
Yeah, it keeps me awake at nights Al…
However, Alan wasn’t the only person going around the UK rattling since the BBC registered around 4,500 complaints about their coverage of the long weekend, and most of those were about the river pageant and the accompanying commentary.
The BBC has since said that it has “taken on board” criticisms about the weekend’s reporting, and “will review [the] coverage.”
An average of 10.3 million people watched the pageant broadcast over its five-hour duration.
Were you one of those who complained? And if so, what was so bad about it all?
