Prince Harry is including in his "Filmography" section news stories about him, not actual appearances.

Prince Harry's new listing includes nearly one hundred entries for his filmography as "Self" that are actually news stories about him. They are factually inaccurate and an offense to professionals who have actually made appearances as "Self." How can this be corrected?

All the entries for news shows should be marked with the attribute (archive footage), to indicate that he didn't appear live. These credits will then be moved to the separate Archive Footage category at the bottom of his page. Presumably his name is mentioned by a news anchor or correspondent, which means that the (uncredited) attributes probably aren't necessary.

Hi Sue, please rest assured that information is added and corrected to IMDb by regular users such as yourself. Please also keep your submissions strictly factual. In this case, these credits are absolutely factual, they just need the (archive footage) attribute added, which was probably missed by the IMDb user who initially added the information. Please feel free to correct these by removing the (uncredited) attribute and replacing it with (archive footage).

Hi Elizabeth, please rest assured that the corrections I've made are factual. I've corrected listings that are misclassified, unsubstantiated, or outdated. It took a lot of time out of my day, and I asked here what I should do before making any corrections. Thanks.

Thanks Sue, please ensure you are not removing these valid Self credits, but instead just adding the (archive footage) attribute.
