Royal aides have rubbished claims they were contacted by Netflix before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s show went to air.
In the opening scene of the Sussexes’ six-part tell, a message on the screen says: “All interviews were completed by August 2022. Members of the royal family declined to comment on the content within this series.”
However, sources at both Buckingham and Kensington Palaces say the Firm was not given an opportunity to respond.
London Evening Standard royal editor Robert Jobson tweeted that neither palaces nor any members of the Royal Family were approached for comment on any of the claims made in the series.
However, he added that hey would not be commenting anyway.
Among Harry and Meghan’s claims was a subtle dig at Prince William and Kate Middleton, as the Duchess of Sussex described meeting them for the first time.
She said: “Even when Will and Kate came over and I met her for the first time.
“I was in ripped jeans and I was barefoot.
“I’m a hugger I’ve always been a hugger. I didn’t know that could be jarring for a lot of Brits.”
“I guess I started to understand very quickly that the formality out on the outside, carried through on on the inside.
“That there is a forward facing way of being then you close the door and you go phew, great we can relax now.
“But that formality continues on both sides and that was surprising to me.”
Also, in episode one, Harry appeared to reference his sister-in-law, the Princess of Wales, while discussing how his relationship with Meghan differs from what the Royal Family have come to expect.
He said: “I think for so many people in the family, especially men, there can be a temptation or an urge to marry someone who would fit the mould as opposed to somebody who you are perhaps are destined to be with.”
