‘This is [American network] NBC’s,’ she explained in the footage.
“Their facility is bigger, better and more expensive than any other.”
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 we lead to Sunrise,” Barr said in the video, which was filmed inside a tent crowded with gear.

Barr said there were more than forty media from around the world camped outside the palace to cover the monarch’s farewell on Monday.
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 television networks broadcast Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral live from London on Monday night, attracting more than three million viewers combined.
But it was Channel Seven’s coverage of the historic event that came out on top.
Anchored by 7News’ Michael Usher and Sunrise’s Natalie Barr and David Koch, The Grateful Goodbye was watched by 975,000 people in the country’s five major capitals.
