5 Big Revelations To Expect Out Of Harry & Meghan’s Netflix Documentary  

Shocked? Or Underwhelmed? Or both? 

After hearing about it for a year, the highly-anticipated Netflix documentary on Prince Harry and Meghan Markel is finally here. The multi-part series just dropped its first three episodes, showcasing some big revelations about their life, the royal family, Princess Diana and more. Here are the top five highlights.  

 

     

  1. The Couple Met On Instagram   
  2.  

 

 

For all those who are still wondering how this came to be, the answer is Instagram. As per the series, Harry spotted the Suits actress in a picture on a mutual friend’s feed. He recounted the incident, saying : “I was just scrolling through my feed and someone who was a friend had this video of the two of them, it was like a Snapchat and that was the first thing, I was like, ‘Who is that?'”  

 

Meghan recalled her first interaction with the prince, saying: “I asked if I could see his feed. So that’s the thing when people say, ‘Did you google him?’, No. That’s your homework. You’re like let me see what they’re about in their feed, not what someone else says about them but what they are putting out about themselves. That to me was the best barometer.”  

 

Further continuing: “So I went through and it was just like beautiful photography and all of these environmental shots and this time he was spending in Africa.”  

 

     

  1. On Being Tempted To Marry Someone Who ‘Fits The Mould’  
  2.  

 

 

Yet another interesting tidbit here came when the Duke opened up about the urge for men in the royal family to marry someone who “would fit the mould”, saying: “I think for so many people in the family, especially the men, there can be a temptation or an urge to marry someone who would fit the mould, rather than someone you are perhaps destined to be with,”. He further added, “ The difference between making decisions with your head or your heart and my mum certainly made most of her decision from her heart. I am my mother’s son.”  

 

     

  1. The Royal Family Asked Why Meghan Should Be Protected  
  2.  

 

 

Early in their relationship, Prince Harry claimed that some members of the royal family asked why Meghan should get “special treatment” and “be protected”.  

 

While referring to a Daily Mail headline from 2016, that read Harry’s girl is (almost) straight outta Compton,” the Prince said: “The direction from the Palace was don’t say anything. But what people need to understand is, as far as a lot of the family were concerned, everything that she was being put through, they had been put through as well. So it was almost like a rite of passage.”  

 

Further adding : “Some of the members of the family were like ‘my wife had to go through that, so why should your girlfriend be treated any differently? Why should you get special treatment? Why should she be protected?’  

 

“I said ‘the difference here is the race element.'”  

 

     

  1. On The ‘Formality’ Between The Royal Family  
  2.  

 

 

In the second episode, Markle recalls her first-time meeting Prince William and Kate, and how formal the entire interaction was, “I met her [Kate] for the first time, they came over for dinner. I remember I was in ripped jeans and I was barefoot. I was a hugger, I’ve always been a hugger, I didn’t realise that that is jarring for a lot of Brits,” she recalled.   

 

The Dutchess soon came to realise that, “I started to understand very quickly that the formality on the outside carried through on the inside.   

 

“That there is a forward-facing way of being, and then you close the door,” she said, letting out a sigh of relief, before adding: “I can relax now. But that formality carries over on both sides and that was surprising to me,” said Markle.

Also, in a part of the second episode, Harry revealed how his wife’s career as an actress didn’t sit well with the family, who thought the relationship wouldn’t last.   

 

Harry said, “I remember my family first meeting her and being incredibly impressed. Some of them didn’t quite know what to do with themselves.” Jokingly adding “I think they were surprised, maybe surprised that a ginger could land such a beautiful, intelligent woman.”   

 

He further averred, “The fact that I was dating an American actress was probably what clouded their judgement more than anything else at the beginning. ‘Oh she’s an actress, this won’t last.'”
