Prince Harry has hinted that his new Netflix series will delve into his wife’s painful entry into the royal family and its similarities to her mother’s turbulent marriage.
The Duke warned he “didn’t want history to repeat itself” in a second teaser clip released today, which features images and video of Meghan Markle and Princess Diana.
In the clip, Harry says: “The pain and suffering of women who marry into this institution, this birth frenzy. I was terrified, I didn’t want history to repeat itself.
“No one knows the full truth. We know the whole truth.’
As he speaks, footage shows his mother facing the paparazzi outside Buckingham Palace, linking this to the media coverage Meghan faced after marrying Harry.
These clips have already been criticized after it emerged that old news footage was used to show photographers chasing Harry and Meghan.
What the producers actually used was live coverage of the press trying to get pictures of Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen on his way to jail.
The first episode of the ‘global event’ comes out on Thursday and features comments from friends and family.
Netflix says most of the contributors have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed.
Historians will also discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family’s relationship with the press.
“The series does more than illuminate one couple’s love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other,” said a Netflix spokesperson.
