Commenting on the upcoming series, a Buckingham Palace source yesterday told the Times: “We’re steeling ourselves for what’s coming in the slight spirit of tedium.

“It’s a curious-looking form of privacy they’ve sought.”

The couple will this evening receive the Robert F Kennedy Human Rights award, the President of which, Kerry Kennedy, said: “They went to the oldest institution in UK history and told them what they were doing wrong, that they couldn’t have structural racism within the institution; that they could not maintain a misunderstanding about mental health.”

She added: “They knew that if they did this there would be consequences, that they would be ostracised, they would lose their family, their position within this structure, and that people would blame them for it…

“They have done it anyway because they believed they couldn’t live with themselves if they didn’t question this authority.”
