Newspapers refuse to publish advert against Royal Wedding

The Daily Telegraph has joined the Daily Mail and refused to run an advert that mocked the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles and urged support for an elected head of state, a republican group claimed today.
Earlier today MediaGuardian.co.uk reported how the group said the editor of the Mail, Paul Dacre, had personally intervened to make sure the advert did not appear in tomorrow's paper.

Now the group behind the anti-monarchy campaign says the Telegraph has just told it it will not be running the advert either.
The newspaper today confirmed that it rejected the advert on the grounds that it was "inappropriate".
