The Chaser banned from taking the royal wee out of Will and Kate's wedding

"Yep, the royal family has banned the ABC's satirical coverage of the royal wedding, only days before it goes to air, despite initially placing no restrictions on the coverage. While the wedding screens on ABC1 on Friday night, The Chaser team was planning to broadcast its own light–hearted look at the spectacle on ABC2.

Over the Easter weekend, restrictions were put in place – banning use of the wedding footage 'in any drama, comedy, satirical or similar entertainment program or content'. While The Chaser coverage has been banned, channels Nine and Ten are still planning to use commentators such as Dame Edna Everage as part of their coverage. Clarence House, the private office of the Prince of Wales, has gone as far as to warn other media outlets not to supply a feed to The Chaser team. Hopefully they'll still manage to use new social media tools to get the word out on Friday night."
