“Nobody knows the whole truth. We know the whole truth.” Prince Harry’s words as the trailer finally announced their documentary series will premiere on Thursday, and confirmed that Harry and Meghan won’t hold back.
Any sense that this would be a series dominated by their optimistic outlook on the future and their philanthropic ambitions has been blown out of the water, with the commercials are dramatic, high tension and the feeling that this is their chance to fight back.
Some of the accusations we’ve heard before, but in this polished and highly produced format, this seems more obvious.
Harry’s family and the palace are strongly accused of spreading stories about them and making the media hungry to bring them down.
His description of it as a “dirty game” that brings “pain and suffering to the women who are married to this organization” is particularly emotional, along with Meghanstatement of: “I realized that they will never protect you”.
Harry’s anger and disgust at the media’s “feeding frenzy” is something we’ve heard many times before but it’s interesting to see the pictures of sister-in-law Kate, along with his mother. he’s Princess Diana, when you consider the alleged rift between Kate and Meghan.
As soon as I posted about the documentary’s release date on social media, Harry and Meghan’s supporters immediately responded and defended their right to protest, saying that the media had been following the narrative for too long. – now is their time.
But others will argue that – like Oprah’s interview – the documentary will not challenge their factual side. The two trailers have been “fact-checked” by people who don’t believe the accounts from the Sussexes are accurate.
The most surprising thing is that Harry, a man who has always been conscious of keeping the media out of his private life, now seems to have given us a ladder to take a better look behind the scenes. palace walls.
He invited us in to prove they were victims.
Any suggestion that the Queen’s death might have brought the family together is crushed in that 50-second trailer.
Responding to the allegations in an interview with Oprah in 2021, his grandmother said in a statement that “recollections may vary”. Now, Harry’s father, the King, must wait for other recollections to come.
