BBC Received Over 100 Complaints Over Its Never-ending Coverage Of Kate's Cancer Diagnosis

On Friday, the BBC responded to viewer and listener complaints regarding its coverage of Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis, acknowledging concerns about perceived excessiveness and insensitivity.

The broadcaster emphasized that its approach was guided by sensitivity and the importance of the story.

While acknowledging that not all viewers may have approved of the coverage, the BBC stated that it aimed to reflect the significance of the story and the widespread support for the princess worldwide.

It added: “As part of our analysis, we examined the intense speculation there had been in the preceding weeks about the princess’s health.  We also reported on Catherine’s request for privacy and detailed the statement from Kensington Palace regarding the princess having the right to privacy in relation to her medical issues.”

In a recent social media post, Middleton, the Princess of Wales, said: “In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful; however, tests after the operation found cancer had been present.”

She added that, on medical advice, she had begun a course of preventative chemotherapy treatment.

The BBC emphasized on Friday: “We always give careful consideration to the editorial decisions we make.”

Overall, the U.K. public broadcaster argued about its news coverage of Middleton’s cancer diagnosis that “our reporting made clear that this is a difficult time for the princess and the rest of the Royal Family.” It concluded: “We have been mindful at all times to approach our coverage with sensitivity.”
