Billions of people watched closely when Queen Elizabeth was to be buried on Monday 19 September.

Book bomb: – Wanted to push out King Charles

King Charles (73) was understandably clearly touched when thousands sang along to “God save the King” during the funeral. But when this became visible at NRK, they deliberately broke very extensive rules from the British royal house and the BBC.

That’s what the Journalist writes.

– Yes, we think this was terribly detailed. We make independent, ethical assessments. We had video clips of King Charles, when he showed emotion. We chose to publish them because we thought it was right, says program editor Espen Olsen Langfeldt in NRK to Journalisten.

Denies the rumours

Namely, no one from the royal family was supposed to be visible in an emotionally affected state, and thus NRK broke with the assumptions of both the royal house and the BBC.

– These rules are from a bygone era. They are old fashioned. NRK must make its own assessments of the images against a modern media reality, says the NRK editor.

Erik Skarrud, secretary from the Broadcasting Council, receives and processes complaints at NRK.

He confirms to Dagbladet that they have received complaints after the coverage of the funeral.

– As far as I can see, there are three complaints about the coverage of the death of Queen Elizabeth. The three believe the coverage is too massive, he says.
