Prince Harry’s Netflix Show Portrays Hatred, Racism, Destructive Act Of Revenge – Experts

December 5, 2022

The experts believed the show portrayed hatred, racism and destructive act of revenge.

Royal experts have described Harry and Meghan's explosive Netflix series as an "amazing act of revenge" that will "widen the rift" with Prince William and weaken the very institution he will inherit when he becomes King.

The experts believed the show portrayed hatred, racism and destructive act of revenge.

In a new one-minute preview, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex criticise the "hierarchy of the family," claim insiders "leaked and planted" stories about them, call royal life a "dirty game," and discuss "the pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution" after footage of Princess Diana and Kate being hounded by photographers.

The teaser will no doubt frighten courtiers who are bracing for more allegations that will likely widen the schism between the Sussexes and the Waleses.

A royal author, Richard Fitzwilliams told MailOnline that the effects of the Netflix docuseries will be felt for years to come.

“This is a full frontal, extremely destructive attack on the Royal Family - the institution as well as members of those households,” he said.

He continued, “I think this will widen the rift between the brothers. There is no doubt that this Netflix series is an amazing act of revenge designed to weaken the very institution that William will inherit as future King. Of course everyone will be asking how King Charles will react to this in the short-term, but the effects of this will be felt in years to come. That's the whole point.

“This is a full frontal, extremely destructive attack on the Royal Family - the institution as well as individual households and members of those households. This series I suspect will greatly weaken the royals in the eyes of the world, especially among young people.”

The Queen's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter called the series 'one long whinge', adding: 'I think that William and Kate will watch this trailer and think to themselves, “Oh God, here we go again.”

“This is just one long whinge, and for what? Harry says he's doing this to protect his family - protect them from what? Meghan says if we only knew what happened behind closed doors - why should we? What exactly is it that they have to say which we haven't heard before?”

During the teaser, a friend is heard claiming that the couple's experience has been 'about hatred, about race' as a strikingly intimate and previously unseen clip flashes up of an exasperated Harry holding a hand to his face as Meghan passes behind him while heavily pregnant with their daughter, Lili.

After a series of clips of photographers and newspapers being printed, Meghan says, “I realised, they're never going to protect you” before she is seen once again crying. Harry then adds, “I was terrified, I didn't want history to repeat itself.”

Volume one will be released on December 8, exactly three months after the death of Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, while volume two will be released on December 15, clashing with the Princess of Wales' carol service.

The teaser begins with a scene of Harry and Meghan in a car, presumably in America, as the duke says, "It's really hard to look back on it now and say, "what on earth happened?"

As videos of the couple's engagement and wedding in 2018 play, a news clip voiceover by Piers Morgan says, “She's becoming a royal rock star.”

Another scene depicts the Sussexes on a royal stroll as a member of the public exclaims, “Meghan, we love you.”

It cuts to Meghan saying 'and then' before snapping her fingers with Harry adding: 'Everything changed'.

A photo of the Royal Family at the Trooping the Colour in 2019 is shown - including William, Catherine, Charles and Camilla - while Harry narrates: 'There's a hierarchy of the family, you know, there's leaking, but there's also planting of stories. It's a dirty game.'

The couple's lawyer, Jenny Afia, tells the camera: 'There was a war against Meghan to support other people's agendas' before Christopher Bouzy, a tech entrepreneur and a longtime supporter of the couple, says, 'it's about hatred, it's about race'.

Clips of paparazzi photographing the couple are then paralleled alongside old footage of Harry's mother, Princess Diana, and Catherine, Princess of Wales, being followed by the media.

The duchess then says: “I realised they're never going to protect you' and Harry adds, “I was terrified, I didn't want history to repeat itself.’

Finally, Harry appears in a selfie video as he says, “No one knows the full truth - we know the full truth” and the trailer ends.

Netflix confirmed today that the documentary series will premiere on Thursday.
