The British monarchy have a complex relationship with journalism - both needing and resisting media attention in equal measures.
This event brings together distinguished royal reporters, producers and press officers to explore how ‘royal journalism’ has evolved in recent years - and how it might change further under the reign of King Charles III.
Panellists will discuss how they negotiate their own relationship and access to the royal family; whether there is still a culture of deference towards the monarchy among journalists and the wider public in the UK; and the similarities and differences taken by UK and international journalists to reporting the royal family.
