The BBC says sorry: To the Queen

The BBC has apologised to the Queen after a trail for a new documentary appeared to show Her Majesty storming out of a room during a photo shoot.

The trail, made for BBC One, showed a series of events out of chronological order which gave the impression that the Queen had stormed out of a portrait session with Annie Leibovitz. This was not the case.

The BBC issued the following statement. (EDIT: MediaGuardian is now reporting that the offending trail was made by an outside company.  This would not absolve the corporation if it had broadcast the trail but in this case, it could alter things)
