Royal pains Harry and Meghan are back at their games, this time preparing to launch a vitriolic Netflix docuseries aimed at going after their family with tell-all glee. In the trailer for the series, it is suggested that the negative press surrounding Meghan Markle was not the result of her sheer unlikeability, but rather “planted” as a means to rid them of her.
The trailer wastes no time revealing the plot, premise, and motivation for the new special. As the New York Post writes, the outed royal couple has a specific narrative they wish to push about the royal family.
“There’s a hierarchy of the family,” said Prince Harry, 38, in the video. “You know, there’s leaking, but there’s also planting of stories.”
“There was a war against Meghan to suit other people’s agendas,” adds a journalist.
“It’s about hatred, it’s about race,” another voice comments.
Back in 2020, the duo decided to leave the British royal family after announcing that they were “stepping back as ‘senior’ members.”
“The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution, this feeding frenzy,” continued Harry in the latest trailer.
Part 1 of the series is set to be released on December 8th and the second installment comes out a week later on the 15th. Netflix describes the series as an “unprecedented” look at royal drama and then pretends the aim is to look not at just how the royal family treated their first black duchess but how humanity interacts with one another. Gross.
In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story. Across six episodes, the series explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution.
With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family’s relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple’s love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other. From the critically-acclaimed, two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director Liz Garbus, ‘Harry & Meghan’ is a never-before-seen look at one of the most-discussed couples in history.
Wherever Markle goes, there is never a shortage of drama. She famously conducted a lengthy interview with Oprah, whose content this docuseries seems like it will heavily retread – “Meghan good, royal family bad” – and she rankled countles Brits when she attended the Queen’s funeral service despite repeatedly badmouthing her, the crown, and the institution writ large.
Commenting on her funeral appearance, British broadcaster Piers Morgan blasted the Duchess of Susexx by saying her attendance was “hard to stomach.”
Of course they’re not a racist family,” he said. “And I think Meghan Markle, by saying that, endorsed by Prince Harry, managed to smear the entire royal family and I find it quite hard to forgive that given she did that right after Prince Phillip was taken into hospital, knowing that none of them were able to respond, because they don’t respond to this kind of thing.”
He went on to add: “And the last two years of the queen’s life was constantly having to deal with these two going public, attacking the royal family and the monarchy, which of course is the very institution which she headed and affords them the ability to make all this money.”
“When I see them, particularly Meghan Markle, at all these events this week, I think a lot of British people find it very hard to stomach because they think, ‘Well, you made the queen’s life so difficult the last two years of her life.’”
