Nicholas Witchell really is cringeworthy.

He's just so melodramatic and smarmy. I wish they'd replace him.

Sorry Nick.

Doesn’t it just go with the territory of being royal correspondent?

I can't forget Charles comment about him that was picked up by a microphone years ago. 😁.

He strikes me as being someone the bbc can't get rid of so they've sidelined him and made him the royal corespondent.

Sorry for ignorance but who is that and why is he cringe!

Google him. He's cringe imo because he has no rapport with the RF. Charles openly accidentally admitted he hated him and yet he still has to report on everything the royals do. He looks constantly miserable whenever you see him. He used to read the main news years ago but seems to have been sidelined.

I agree. He seemed so bloody miserable yesterday on what was a joyful occasion. Also thought there was something 'off' about the way he spoke about the Queen not attending today's service.
He doesn't seem to like the rf any more than they like him!

That says more about Charles than it does Nicholas Witchell. And Jennie Bond also famously said she didn’t like the royal family as well, despite reporting on them for years. It’s a grim job.

Haven't seen him for the jubilee (oh shucks) but I remember seeing him on the news talking about the queen's health. I think a statement had said she had a minor illness, then a few days later they announced she'd been in hospital but was home - something like that. Well he was fuming. I really think he thinks he's entitled to her medical notes.

So strange that he used to be presenting the news on prime time BBC and then got surely the crappiest job going.

William’s face was a picture when his dad said that!

I've always assumed someone powerful has something over him and keeps him in that post by way of revenge/warning and he just has to keep in suffering. May as well have been consigned to the fires of hell. Maybe he did a pact with the devil a long time ago. Hmm

Agreed. I remember hearing this and thinking, oh look, another reason to think Charles is an arsehole.

Apparently he is not popular in the BBC newsroom either. I heard that a cheer when up when Charles made his infamous comment. He must have some dirt on someone.

"I can't bear that man. I mean, he's so awful, he really is."

Coming from the man who asked for marriage guidance from Sir James Savile and bought cautioned sex offender Peter Ball a house...
