Viewers who expected 60 Minutes Australia’s program about royal ‘scandal’ and ‘abuse’ to be about a prince accused of raping a 17 year-old girl, were surprised to discover it was actually about a princess who wore the wrong clothes.
“Plot twist!” viewer Sam Renais said after watching the episode.
“When I saw they used words ‘fiend’ and ‘monster’ in the promo, I just assumed it was going to be about a prince who was mates with Jeffry Epstein and has been accused of having forced sex with a minor. But it was actually about a princess who doesn’t smile as much as we’d like. No one expected that!”
A spokesperson for 60 Minutes said they always dug deeper and investigated further in order to uncover the bigger stories.
“A 59 year-old prince who used to hang around with a convicted paedophile and has been accused of raping an underage girl is a good yarn, sure. But when we uncovered the fact that Meghan Markle had sacked a babysitter, we knew which story we had to run with”.
