BROADCAST MEDIA

Television, together with national as well as regional radio, has played a major part in Christopher’s career since his very earliest guest appearances on popular UK talk shows such as TV-am, Good Morning Britain and Richard and Judy. As an authoritative voice he has regularly been invited to comment on topical royal issues for national broadcasters including BBC News, ITV, Channel 4 News and Sky; for BBC World Service, BBC 5 Live, and regional radio, including his local station BBC Radio Berkshire.

As a freelance royal commentator for broadcasters at home and abroad (notably for Canada's leading news network CTV), Christopher has provided analysis and commentary for numerous royal events. Among the more major celebrations/commemorations were Her Majesty The Queen's Golden- and Diamond Jubilees, Her Majesty's 90th birthday, the death and Ceremonial Funeral of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and the weddings of The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Christopher also covered the birth of Harry and Meghan's son Archie, their decision to step aside as working members of the royal family in favour of independent lives in California and subsequent events including the controversial television interview with Oprah Winfrey. Shortly afterwards, he was also called on by British, North American and Australian television and radio broadcasters to provide commentary on the death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
