In case you’ve been wondering: nope, the royal family have most certainly not watched Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix docuseries. According to Vanity Fair, Prince William and Kate Middleton in particular “refused” to watch Harry & Meghan, and have no plans to do so. What were they doing instead, you ask? Taking their kids to school, apparently!
Meanwhile, a senior palace aide confirmed that the royals are trying to remain chill about the doc, and that “There has been a lot of hype but there is not going to be a comment at every twist and turn.”
That said, palace aides “will be watching the series closely” (as will a fleet of lawyers), but there’s a reluctance to feed into the “media frenzy” with any official comments. However! The palace did push back against the docuseries’ disclaimer yesterday, which reads “This is a first-hand account of Harry & Meghan’s story, told with never before seen person archive. All interviews were completed by August 2022. Members of the Royal family declined to comment on the content within this series.”
Per The Telegraph, “Royal sources insisted that neither Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace nor any member of the Royal family had been approached for comment or given advance sight of any part of the series.”
Meanwhile, Vanity Fair reports that the palace was contacted for a comment, but from a third party email. When they tried to verify the email with both Archewell and Netflix, there was reportedly no response. As a source explains, “In the absence of this verification, we were unable to provide any response. The substance of the email we received also did not address the entire series.”
