After the death of the 99-year-old prince on Friday, the BBC was immediately mourning.
The scheduled broadcast was canceled and instead TV viewers received special programs with newscasters dressed in black all day.
Popular TV shows like the “MasterChef” cooking contest had to give way to programs about the prince, and BBC1 and BBC2 broadcast the same. Silent music was played on BBC Radio channels.
While some Britons thought it appropriate to show that kind of respect to the Prince, others thought it was too much.
The BBC has received so many complaints in the past 24 hours that it has created a separate website where the public can register complaints if they feel the TV coverage has become too extensive.
It was not known how many complained.
