The Royal family divides opinion. To some they are an integral part of our national fabric, a global institution, and a huge tourist draw bringing in much needed revenue. To others they are an unworthy privileged elite who should not be supported by taxes in a 21st century democracy.
What cannot be doubted is the fact the Royal family regularly makes news. Covering the births, weddings, deaths, travel and personal lives throws up unique challenges for Sky News Royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills.
In this Behind the Headline podcast, Sky News presenter Tom Macleod talks to Rhiannon about what the members of the Royal Family are like, how she approaches reporting on them, her thoughts on republicanism and whether the Royals are here to stay.
