The first three episodes of ‘Harry & Meghan’, the highly anticipated Netflix documentary about Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, were dropped on Thursday following a frenzy of speculative reporting in the British media about the content and damaging content. It will be for King Charles III and Prince William, reports ‘Variety’.
None of the royal family members agreed to be interviewed for the series, which includes several revelations on the Harry-Meghan love story – they met on Instagram and Harry was late for their first date! – and also about the initial obstacles in his relationship with the family.
While the first three episodes contain nothing that could upset the royal family, it does include footage from Princess Diana’s controversial ‘Panorama’ interview with now-discredited BBC journalist Martin Bashir, who told ‘Variety’ notes, is “likely to anger” the Prince of Wales.
Last year it came to light that the interview had been fraudulently secured. Earlier this year the BBC publicly apologized to William and Harry and donated the $1.6 million they earned from the interview. Prince William then said: “It is my firm view that this ‘Panorama’ program has no validity and should never be broadcast again.”
In the documentary, according to ‘Variety’, Harry says: “I think we all know that now [Diana] Was tricked into giving an interview, but at the same time told the truth of his experience.
In another segment, Harry says male family members were unsympathetic about the intense press intrusion into his and Meghan Markle’s lives because their spouses had to do the same.
“Some family members were like, ‘But my wife’s got to go through this,'” says Harry. “‘So why should your girlfriend be treated any differently? Why should you get special treatment? Why should she be protected?’ And I said that there is an inter-caste element here.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also revealed that it was Meghan’s career as an actor – at the time she was appearing in the long-running legal drama series ‘Suits’ – that caused the royals “biggest problems”. “She was one of the Unnamed family members reportedly predicted to Harry that the relationship would not last.
The couple share intimate details about how they met and the first time Meghan met Harry’s relatives, including William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, as well as her first interactions with Queen Elizabeth.
Meghan recounted an anecdote from her interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, saying that the meeting with the Queen was sprung unexpectedly when Harry asked her on the drive to Windsor Castle if she knew how to courtesy.
“How do you explain this to people?” Harry tells series helmer Liz Garbus. “How do you explain that you need to bow down to your grandmother? And that you’d need to bow down, especially to an American. Like, it’s weird.
