Prince Harry has hinted that his new Netflix series will delve into his wife’s painful entry into the Royal Family and its similarity to his mother’s tumultuous marriage.
The Duke warned he ‘didn’t want history to repeat itself’ in a second teaser clip released today, which features photos and video of Meghan Markle and Princess Diana.
In the clip, Harry recounts: “The pain and suffering of women getting married into this institution, this feeding frenzy. I was terrified, I didn’t want history to repeat itself.
“Nobody knows the whole truth. We know the whole truth.
As he speaks, footage shows his mother confronting 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 had been used to show photographers stalking Harry and Meghan.
What the producers actually used was live press coverage trying to get shots of Donald Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, leaving for jail.
The first episode of the “global event” will be released on Thursday and will feature commentary from friends and family.
Netflix says most contributors have never spoken publicly about what they witnessed.
Historians will also discuss the current state of the British Commonwealth and the Royal Family’s relationship with the press.
“The series does more than illuminate a couple’s love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other,” a Netflix spokesperson said.
