BBC Lied About The Queen–Will Heads Roll?

The BBC fibbed about Elizabeth II which must be an act of treason. Seems Her Majesty didn’t storm off in a fit of pique after a session with celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz. The session was filmed for a BBC documentary, A Year With the Queen.

BBC exec. Peter Fincham said at a press launch for the doco: “Definitely a memorable bit is Leibovitz getting it wrong and the Queen losing it a bit and walking out in a huff. In most of what we see there’s a twinkle in her eye.”

The trailer showed her saying to a lady in waiting: “I’m not changing anything. I’ve had enough dressing like this, thank you very much.” implying she was leaving the photo shoot. In fact, she was saying this to the lady in waiting as she walked in.

An apology has been issued, admitting to misrepresentation. And just the other day, FBLA was hearing how the Beeb is so trusted and responsible.
