Britain's royal family is once again embroiled in scandal, but this time the Queen's subjects haven't been able to get the lurid details from their mainstream media. Under the UK's strict libel laws, British media are barred from reporting on the allegations that Prince Charles was caught in a sexual act with a male aide. Meanwhile, charges of censorship are being levied by continental European newspapers, because their British distributors are allegedly keeping them off newsstands. Brooke reviews the scandal with David Hooper, a London solicitor specializing in libel law.
