Britain’s Prince Harry has reacted to criticisms of a documentary that documents their private lives. A statement by their spokesman stated that they had not cited privacy in their decision to step back from the royals.
The couple, Harry and Meghan, made several disclosures in the three first episodes of this much-anticipated documentary. Harry talked about how he disguised his dates and Meghan recalled her first death threat. There was also previously unreleased footage of Archie.
According to the BBC, the launch attracted 2.4 million viewers in Britain on the same day as the episode. This was in spite of the fact that the couple has previously voiced their disapproval over press intrusion.
The couple’s press secretary, however, refuted this criticism in a statement.
“The Duchess and the Duke have not cited privacy when they stepped back.” According to the BBC, this distorted narrative was meant to silence the couple.”
They are willing to tell their story on their terms. Yet, the tabloid media have created a false narrative in press coverage that has influenced public opinion and media reporting.”
Reuters requested a copy and was reported on by other media outlets.
This statement indicated that Harry and Meghan did not mention privacy in their departure from the royal duties in January 2020. They expressed a desire for continued public duties and roles.
The 2020 statement of the senior royals did not provide any reason to resign.
They issued warnings about paparazzi photographer harassment days after making the decision.
This criticism was echoed by Harry in 2019, who said that he believed his wife faced bullying from tabloids, similar to the one faced by Princess Diana. Diana died from injuries sustained while trying to escape paparazzi photographers.
They have severed all ties to Britain’s top tabloids, and they successfully sued several publications. Further legal actions are pending.
