Prince Harry quick to correct himself after apparent ‘misogynistic’ slip-up over Meghan


The Duke of Sussex revealed his first thoughts when he saw his wife-to-be walk down the aisle.

Liz Garbus, the director of the docuseries, then asked Harry: “What was going through your head when you saw her coming?”

The Prince replied: “Look at… Look at me, look what I got,” before Meghan interjected, laughing: “Oh my gosh.”

Harry continued: “Look what I… look what I found… The world was watching us, but when we were actually at the altar, as far as I was concerned, it was just the two of us.”

Harry in ‘giant rebrand as modern version of Princess Diana’ over fears he’ll lose title

The Duke of Sussex is trying to rebrand himself as “the modern version of Princess Diana”, a PR and reputation management expert has claimed. Prince Harry mentioned his late mother multiple times during the documentary focused on his and Meghan’s love story and struggles with the media and Royal Family released earlier this month.

The Daily Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers picked up on Harry’s comment, arguing the Prince corrected himself after seeming to be “a bit misogynistic”.

In conversation with Zoe Forsey for their podcast, Pod Save The King, Mr Myers said: “He qualified himself afterwards because he realised it was a bit misogynistic. He definitely had to pull the handbrake up on that one.”

However, Ms Forsey argued that Harry’s recollection was “really lovely,” saying he was simply sharing “what went through his mind when he saw her looking absolutely beautiful in that gorgeous gown”.

Meghan did not seem too phased by her husband’s comments, telling the documentary soon after: “H and I are really, really good at finding each other in the chaos. When we find each other, we reconnect to [be] like: ‘Oh it’s you. It’s you.’”

“It’s not that the rest of it doesn’t matter, but…The rest of it feels temporary,” she continued.

A friend of the couple added: “It felt like a moment where the world paused and celebrated love. I remember watching him look at her and I almost started to cry.”

Harry and Meghan were married in Windsor on May 18, 2018. The Royal Wedding saw thousands of people line the streets, and millions tune in across the world, to see the ceremony.

“On the day of our wedding, it’s like I went into a really calm space,” Meghan said. “I don’t know how I was so calm. I look back and, ‘How was I so calm?’ And all I wanted was a mimosa, a croissant and to play the song, Going to the Chapel. And that’s what I did — it was great.”

More than 100,000 people packed into Windsor to get a glimpse of the royal bride and groom, a factor that came as a surprise to the Duchess who admitted she didn’t know “people would be lining both sides of the street” to watch her 15-minute drive to the chapel.

They went on to talk about their choice of music for the service, an element Harry’s father King Charles III played a key role in, and Meghan spoke about being charmed by her new father-in-law, who at the last minute, offered to walk her down the aisle.

Later, the couple talked about their reception at St George’s Hall, an event Meghan described as “over the top,” laughing and recounting the moment they cut the cake… “with a sword”.

Musical performances came from the likes of Elton John and Idris Elba, and the newlyweds chose Land of 1000 Dances for their first dance. “I just really wanted the music to be fun,” Meghan explained. “Even our first dance.”

She added: “It was so fun. I was just spinning like a whirlwind. It was so great.”

Their union was widely seen as a symbol of hope for the monarchy, a sign that the centuries-old institution was attempting to adapt to the ever-changing world and society. However, as it is known now and as the Netflix docuseries detailed, things did not work out as perfectly as expected.

“There was an expectation, right? Diana’s boy. There was an expectation to have a public wedding,” Harry said in a bleak assessment of his role within the Firm. “It was like: ‘Mission complete with William. Now, let’s see if this goes the distance with Harry and then we can actually go: “Job done.”’”

The Sussexes’ relationship has seemingly stood the test of time, however, the same cannot be said for their roles within the Royal Family.

Since their exit in 2020, relations between the couple and members of the Firm have been strained. And their explosive Netflix documentary may only add fuel to the fire.

The final episode saw Harry and Meghan accuse both the Palace and the media for contributing to their exit, alleging that lies were told to protect Prince William and royal households were pitted against each other to benefit the hierarchy. Harry said: “They were happy to lie to protect my brother. They were never willing, to tell the truth, to protect us.”

None of the UK-based royals have responded to the claims made in the docuseries and no comment is expected to be made.
