Queen's Funeral

Buckingham Palace’s veto stopped British television networks from using films from Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, emphasizing the monarchy’s fraught relationship with the media. As part of an agreement with news broadcasters, the royal household was given the authority to request that specific footage from the funeral procedures at Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle not be used again.

According to the Guardian, the palace gave rules on what footage and images would be considered appropriate, with a special plea to avoid intruding on the sorrow of specific members of the royal family. Other recordings, such as one showing a man lunging towards the Queen’s coffin in Westminster Hall, were also avoided by broadcasters.
