Meghan and Harry’s Netflix series branded an ‘extremely destructive attack’ on The Firm


Trailers for the upcoming fly-on-the-wall series have shown pictures of snapping photographers and footage of the Duchess of Sussex crying.

In the trailer, Prince Harry speaks of the “planting of stories” as part of a “dirty game”, adding there is a “hierarchy” within the Royal Family.

In what appears to be a reference to both Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan, and the struggles of his late mother, Princess Diana, he can be heard speaking of the “pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution”.

He continued: “I was terrified, I didn’t want history to repeat itself.”

In the trailer, the couple say only they know “the full truth” about their lives and departure from the Royal Family, with Harry saying some elements are “really hard to look back on now”.

But the series has become an “extremely destructive attack on the Royal Family”, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams has said.

He argued there will likely be a stronger impact on the younger generations who choose to watch the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix series.

He told MailOnline: “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.”

Mr Fitzwilliams then zeroed in on the relationship between Prince Harry and Prince William, claiming “this will widen the rift between the brothers”.

He added: “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.”

Netflix said: “At its core, their relationship looks like many others: They met, had a whirlwind romance, fell in love, got married, had children, and built a life based on shared values and mutual support of each other’s work and ambitions.

“But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are no ordinary couple.

The streaming giant added the series would feature interviews from people in the Duke and Duchess’ circle who have “never spoken publicly about the couple’s relationship before”.
