PETER Andre’s wife Emily has slammed the 100,000 people who complained about the BBC’s coverage of Prince Philip’s death earlier this month.
The 99-year-old royal passed away on Friday 9 April, with the Beeb promptly wiping their schedule to pay tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh for the rest of the day.
Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she shared: “I was surprised that more than 100,000 people complained about the BBC’s coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.
“I don’t quite see the need to complain, because it means a lot to a lot of people, and it was such an important thing to cover.”
The GP added: “If you don’t like something there are plenty of other channels available!
“I think it was really nice that they did such good coverage, but I do understand that I follow the Royal Family and not everyone does, so I guess it just wasn’t for everyone.”
Both Emily and her husband Peter have shared their love and respect for the royal family in recent weeks, with 48-year-old Pete even paying tribute to the Queen on Instagram in honour of her 95th birthday today.
Referencing the recent loss of her husband, the singer wrote: “I really wish it was a HAPPY birthday for this wonderful lady. Still, we wish you nothing but the best for your 95th birthday. #ourqueen #strongwoman.”
Peter and Emily tied the knot in 2015 and they share two children, seven-year-old Amelia and four-year-old Theo.
Pete is also dad to 15-year-old Junior and 13-year-old Princess from his first marriage to Katie Price.
