BBC News have defended their coverage of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the wake of their tell all with Oprah Winfrey.
The Beeb have come under fire for the level of coverage dedicated to the royal couple – with many arguing it's too much.
However, the BBC argue that they have been "proportionate" in their reporting.
In the UK alone, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's interview was watched by 11 million people.
In statement to the Metro, the BBC said: "The interview given by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Oprah Winfrey was in itself a news story because members of the Royal Family rarely speak publicly and in depth.
"It's content sparked wider conversations about racism, mental health, the role of the Royal Family and the media."
They continued: "Our coverage reflected duly impartially and accurately what the couple said and the reaction to it.
"The institution of the monarchy and how it develops is a matter of high public interest and we are confident our coverage was proportionate given the significance of the interview."

Since the interview aired the fall out has been vast, with all areas of the country being drawn into the debate about how the insinuation treated Meghan during her time in the UK.
Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan felt so strongly that the former actress had not been truthful during the chat that he quit the hit ITV show.
Piers stormed off the programme during a heated debate with weatherman Alex Beresford over Meghan's claims about race.
Piers was later asked to apologise live on air by ITV bosses after record complaints to Ofcom – including by Meghan herself – but he refused.
He later stood by the decision, arguing he was simply standing up for the right to free speech.
