RTL: Viewers are up in arms after Queen's funeral – "tasteless"

It was a big day for the world – and for RTL: The Cologne broadcaster accompanied the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II live for several hours on Monday (September 19). The well-known Royals TV team of Frauke Ludowig, Guido Maria Kretschmer, Michael Begasse and Bella Lesnik took care of them RTL-Viewers with background information and analysis of the sad day in London. Shortly after the show, however, the viewers criticized Ludowig and Co.

But the exuberant mood in the photos annoys RTL viewers. The comments say:

  • “I think it’s good if you have fun at work, but for this very sad occasion the last picture is inappropriate to tasteless!”
  • “The second picture is pretty wrong for this occasion”
  • “The second photo must be an accident”
  • “And the clowning around seems appropriate to the occasion?”
  • “Find the happy pictures in the context very inappropriate and inappropriate! Unfortunately!”
  • “Yes, such a funeral is something funny”
  • “How inappropriate and incredibly tasteless. Typical RTL”
  • “Great reporting from you! The Queen’s funeral is a historic event symbolic of the respect and love of people around the world!! I understand the second picture all the less!”

But there are also a few followers who only praise the reporting by RTL and Frauke Ludowig’s team and write: “Great reporting from you. Pure goosebumps” and “Wonderful reporting on this once-in-a-century event. I liked that very much”.
