The last three episodes of the docuseries on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are online on Netflix
A royal commentator has accused the Sussexes of ‘humiliating’ Elizabeth II
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rather lenient with Elizabeth II
The Sussexes could have expected it … The broadcast of their docu-series on Netflix, Harry & Meghan, caused a stir, within the royal family, the public, the British but also within the English media. .. After the posting of the last three episodes, this Thursday, December 15, a royal commentator was deeply annoyed against the Duke and Duchess of Sussex … by evoking the memory of Elizabeth II. “Perhaps one day Harry and Meghan will overcome their shyness and tell us their full story. In the meantime, Her late Majesty’s immortal line remains truer than ever: ‘Memories may vary,'” wrote Robert Hardman , a specialist journalist for the British Crown, in the columns of the Daily Mail. According to him, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle convey a false image of Elizabeth II.
“The Sussexes’ portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II as a gentle but helpless puppet, operating at the mercy of higher darker forces, is a memory that not only varies with those of many people who knew the late Queen very well,” he writes before explaining that many have found “degrading”, “false” and “humiliating” the couple’s remarks about Her Majesty, who died on September 8. In his article, he very severely tackles Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who “present themselves as victims, unable to understand that everything did not concern them”. If he also went up against the couple, it is because the biographer of Elizabeth II believes that the Queen of England was their greatest support when they announced their decision to leave the ranks of the British monarchy.
Meghan Markle: ‘I feel deep gratitude’
“For all her disappointment and, at times, exasperation at the Sussexes’ decision to cast off their royal spell after less than two years, the Queen remained devoted to her grandson until the end. I’ve been told that “She was sometimes the main intermediary between California and the Palace,” says Robert Hardman. However, Elizabeth II is one of the only members of the royal family that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spared in their documentary. The Duchess of Sussex notably recounted having been advised by her husband’s grandmother about the tense relationship she has with her father. “I reached out to Her Majesty and told her what was going on. I asked her for advice”, remembered the mother of Archie and Lilibet.
“The Queen and the Prince of Wales have suggested that I write a letter to my father and I have gone to great lengths to discreetly convey this letter to my father,” Meghan Markle added. In the columns of Vanity Fair, the Duchess of Sussex also confided with an open heart on the death of Elizabeth II. In England, she said she felt “a surge of love and support”. Meghan Markle also said she was “grateful to have been able to be with [s]on husband to support him, especially during this time”. Obviously sad to have said goodbye to Elizabeth II, she preferred to remember the reign of Her Majesty. “What is so beautiful is to look at the legacy that her grandmother was able to leave on so many fronts”, still assured the Duchess of Sussex. In terms of female leadership, she is the brightest example of what that looks like. I feel deep gratitude that I was able to spend time with her and get to know her.”
