Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, in a new episode of their Netflix documentary series released today, launched fresh criticism at the British royal family, accusing them of being part of a media crackdown.
In the first installment of episodes released last week, Harry and Meghan faced fierce attacks from the media over their treatment, some of which they called racist, but the royals themselves escaped relatively unscathed.
However, the final three episodes brought more criticism from his relatives and his associates, accusing him of not only failing to prevent negative coverage in the press, but actively encouraging it.
Harry said, “It was already clear to the media that the palace was not going to protect her. Once that happens, the floodgates open.”
The couple were also shown talking about a former senior aide to their older brother Prince William, heir to the throne, who provided evidence in legal action Meghan brought against the Mail on Sunday newspaper who published a letter he had written to her. Desperate father
Meghan said, “It’s your brother. I won’t say anything about your brother, but it’s very clear.”
In his evidence, former aide Jason Knauf suggested Meghan knew at the time that the letter could be leaked.
“So I’m living in a different country now because all the (communications) teams basically try to outdo each other,” said Harry. “But this is the contract, the symbiotic relationship between two institutions doing the best job they can.”
Netflix included a statement from a representative for Knauf, saying the claims were “completely false”.
