In early December, streaming Netflix published a multi-part project “Harry and Meghan” about the life of the youngest son of Princess Diana and his wife Meghan Markle. The documentary by American journalist Liz Garbus, which begins with the disclaimer “The Royals have refused to comment on the content of this series,” has already garnered a lot of comments online. About what revelations of Prince Harry and his wife resonated with the audience, we tell in the material.
1. Prince Harry announced that William chose a wife who fit the mold
The friendship between Prince Harry and his older brother William used to be quite strong. But over the past few years, there have been many conflicts between representatives of the royal family of Great Britain. Most of them are associated with the appearance in the family of Meghan Markle.
In one of the fragments of a documentary film about his life, Harry said that the men in the royal British family never chose women they really loved as wives. And when he talked about how his relatives always preferred women who fit the established patterns, photos of his older brother William and his wife Kate appeared in the frame.
2. Meghan and Harry blamed the media for losing their baby
In each of the six episodes of the documentary series, Meghan Markle and Harry talk about how the UK media has negatively impacted their lives. In the last three episodes, the couple even go into detail about their relationship with the popular Daily Mail.
For example, Markle expressed the opinion that the newspaper was trying to cash in on her and Harry’s personal tragedy. Most of all, the actress was embarrassed by the fact that her half-sister and father gave a comment to the press. Harry fully supported his wife and stated that the stress that arose due to the conflict with the press provoked her miscarriage.
3. Megan considers the first meeting with Elizabeth II “medieval”
The fact that the meeting with Elizabeth II was not easy for Meghan Markle was also written by Andrew Morton, the author of the book “Meghan. Hollywood princess. The fact that the meeting with the queen was exciting, Megan confirmed in the documentary. True, the duchess herself focused more attention not on excitement, but on how she perceived the need to curtsy.
In one of the frames, she even mockingly repeated it and emphasized that she considers this gesture a relic of the Middle Ages. The British were confused not only by this statement, but also by the fact that Prince Harry took such a statement of his wife quite calmly and even with a smile on his face.
4. Harry compared Meghan Markle to Princess Diana
The condemnation of the public caused another comment from Prince Harry. The youngest son of Princess Diana claims that his wife is very reminiscent of his mother.
A lot of who Megan is is so similar to my mom. She has the same compassion, the same empathy. She has the same confidence, the same warmth.
Former employees of the royal palace said that such a statement is outrageous and disgusting to them. And the stress that Diana had to endure, in their opinion, cannot be compared with those minor conflicts that Megan sometimes unleashed herself.
5. Meghan Markle thought about suicide amid stress.
For the first time that she was visited by thoughts of suicide, Megan Markal admitted in a scandalous interview with Oprah Winfrey. In the documentary from Netflix, she decided to go into more detail about what exactly led to the birth of this problem.
Markle emotionally spoke about the fact that such a state caused her the fickleness of the British palace and uncertainty about the future.
It was like all this would finally stop if I wasn’t here.
She also added that the most terrible thing for her was the fact that thoughts of suicide did not cause fear in her.
6 Paparazzi Paid Meghan Markal’s Neighbors To Spy
In the second episode of the series, Meghan also revealed that in 2016, when news about her relationship with Harry spread around the world, the paparazzi paid her neighbors to spy.
The actress claims that one of her neighbors in Toronto installed a camera in the garden behind her house so that the tabloids could observe the private life of the future duchess. However, some acquaintances nevertheless warned her that journalists were wandering around the area so that the actress had the opportunity to hide from them.
