Buckingham Palace complains to press watchdog over article in The Sun claiming queen supported Brexit
Buckingham Palace today said it had registered a complaint with the Independent Press Standards Organisation about a report in the Sun newspaper which claimed that the Queen had voiced strong Eurosceptic views during a lunch with former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg.
The Sun said she vented her anger with Brussels at the pro-EU Nick Clegg during a lunch at Windsor Castle in 2011.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: "We can confirm that we have this morning written to the chairman of the Independent Press Standards Organisation to register a complaint about the front page story in today's Sun newspaper.
"The complaint relates to Clause One of the Editors' Code of Practice."
