The British monarchy has developed the reputation of being a super messy family. And Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have been a major focus when it comes to recent royal drama. The two got married in 2018, and it’s been a bumpy ride ever since. It’s no secret that British tabloids and media were hard on Meghan, with racism being a common theme. Back in 2020, the couple announced they’d be taking a step away from royal duties and becoming financially independent.
On Thursday, Harry and Meghan’s new docuseries about their experience was partly released on Netflix, and it’s already controversial. In the first episode of “Harry and Meghan,” we get mostly background info about their dating life. But already, we find out that the Windsors weren’t totally on board with the relationship – they didn’t like that she was an American actress. We expect to see more about the couple’s relationship with the media and how their breakup with the monarchy went down.
“I accept that there will be people around the world who fundamentally disagree with what I’ve done and how I’ve done it. But I knew that I had to do everything I could to protect my family, especially after what happened to my mum,” Prince Harry said in the docuseries about leaving the monarchy in 2020.
“I said to her – I remember this very clearly – that ‘This is about race. You may not want to hear it, but this is what’s coming down the pike,’” Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, recalls in the second episode of the series.
The team of Piers Morgan, an anchor who was fired from a British morning show for his treatment of Meghan, published a press release saying, “There’s bound to be fireworks as Britain’s most outspoken broadcaster gives his uncensored thoughts on the royal pair and their fly-on-the wall series.”
