The charity fundraiser will be hosted by Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, with their children also in attendance. The snub comes days after the two-part series The Princes and the Press aired on Monday night. The BBC documentary detailed the fractured relationship between the Princes and the British press, and included claims that Prince William briefed the press against his younger brother Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle.
Matthew Stadlen discussed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s move on The Jeremy Vine show.
He stated: “Well, what I can say about William is I have a huge amount of respect for someone who has worked in the areas that he’s worked in, he’s flown helicopters.
“I have a huge amount of respect for what Harry’s done, in going on to the frontlines in Afghanistan.
“I have to say on this story, I think it would have been bigger of William and Kate not to ban the BBC if they actually have done. It’s undignified Carole.

“He’s the future King of England and this is the national broadcaster.”
Journalist Carole Malone jumped in and added: “I’m sorry, Harry and Meghan have slated the Royal Family.
“They have said they are racist. They have said that the Queen was a bad parent. They’ve said Charles was a bad parent.
“They have a right to hit back and I’m really glad they’re doing it.”
Royal Family should use social media to project voice more
Mr Stadlen added: “But this isn’t the way to hit back. You wouldn’t believe in cancel culture, what I would suggest is get William and say let’s do an interview with you and then you can have your say. Don’t cancel it.”
In an unprecedented joint statement shown at the end of Monday’s broadcast, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, and Clarence House stated: “Free, responsible and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy.”
“However, too often overblown and unfounded claims from unknown sources are presented as facts and it is disappointing when anyone, including the BBC, gives them credibility.”
Before the show aired, Buckingham Palace reportedly threatened a boycott on future projects with the BBC after royal courtiers were not allowed to view the documentary before the first episode was aired on Monday.

Royal advisers believe the Queen, Prince Charles and William have not been offered a proper right to reply to the claims made in the documentary.
The second episode will examine the period from 2018 to 2021, described as “a tumultuous time for the royals that includes the birth of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and the royal tours of the Sussexes and the Cambridges.”
It will air on 29 November on BBC2 at 9pm.
