‘This is [American network] NBC’s,’ she explained in the footage.
‘Their set-up is bigger and better and more expensive than any one else’s.’
Meanwhile, Barr said the BBC had four marquees outside the Palace to cover the Queen’s funeral.
‘We’re here for hours and hours and then lead into Sunrise,’ Barr said in the video, which was filmed inside a tent overcrowded with equipment.

At one point in the clip Sunrise co-host David Koch can be seen working on a script in the background.
It comes after three of Australia’s major TV networks broadcast the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II live from London on Monday evening, drawing in over three million viewers combined.
But it was Channel Seven’s coverage of the historical event which came out on top.
Anchored by 7News’ Michael Usher and Natalie Barr and David Koch from Sunrise, The Grateful Goodbye was watched by 975,000 people across the country’s five major capitals.
