Britain's BBC apologised to Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday after a senior journalist reported her lobbying against a Muslim cleric.
BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner broadcast details of a private conversation with the queen during which she supposedly told him she had complained to the last government about Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri.
The queen was said to be upset that Britain had not arrested him after he preached anti-Western sermons outside a mosque in London after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.
That was awkward for a head of state who has no political or executive role and is expected to stay neutral in public. The queen has never given a media interview and typically avoids controversial topics in her speeches.
