The BBC has ordered a new 2x60min BBC Two series, The Princes & The Press (working title), about the relationship between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and the media. The program will be accompanied by a Radio 4 podcast for BBC Sounds. Both programs will be fronted by the BBC’s Media Editor Amol Rajan, who is also set to host a new interview series for BBC Two. The interview series will see Rajan sit down with high-profile global guests from tech barons to business leaders to cultural influencers. Rajan will also be joining the Radio 4 Today program presenting team later this spring and stepping back from hosting duties on The Media Show and from presenting on BBC Radio 2.
