Pod Save The Queen - Royal family news, interviews and fashion

Friday, 24 January

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have cited their treatment by the press as one of the reasons for their move to Canada and withdrawal from their roles as full time working royals.
Pictures of Meghan walking in a park with baby Archie have already been published by some newspaper and online outlets, bringing threats of legal action.
To get a new perspective on the media coverage, and discuss how the royal family are covered more broadly, Pod Save The Queen host Ann Gripper (@anngripper) has invited two external experts to give their views.
In this episode she talks to Matt Tee (LinkedIn profile), chief executive of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (, the main UK press regulator and enforcer of the Editors' Code, which is fundamental to how reporters and photographers work. They discuss how people use IPSO to file complaints (and who is able to), how it works abroad and its relationship with photographers.
