Prince Harry claimed that his family was “happy to lie to protect” his brother, Prince William, but failed to tell the truth about him and his wife.
Based on the official trailer of the second part of “Harry & Meghan” on Netflix, the Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan Markle, are featured thinking about their decision to quit their royal duties and move to California. They described their flight out of the UK as a “freedom flight.”
Based on the trailer, Harry, 38, started, “To see this institutional gaslighting,” and then Markle, 41, shared, “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves.”
The trailer also claimed that the royal family were “practically recruiting people” just to spread false stories about Harry and Meghan. He said, “They were happy to lie to protect my brother, but they were never willing to tell the truth about us.”
The clip also showed footage and photos of the couple together with their children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, looking very happy in their Montecito home where they’ve been living for a while.
Markle said, “It gave us a chance to create that home that we had always wanted.”
“I’ve always felt as though this was a fight worth fighting for,” Harry added.
Though the trailer seem to suggest that the couple left London because they didn’t have privacy and protection, they claimed that they never said it was the reason why they left.
The couple told The New York Times recently through their press secretary, Ashley Hansen, “Their statement announcing their decision to step back mentions nothing of privacy and reiterates their desire to continue their roles and public duties.”
“Any suggestion otherwise speaks to a key point of this series,” the spokeswoman added. “They are choosing to share their story, on their terms, and yet the tabloid media has created an entirely untrue narrative that permeates press coverage and public opinion. The facts are right in front of them.”
The Netflix docuseries have released its first three episodes on December 8 and the second half of it, which also has three episodes, will premiere on Thursday, December 15.
The first half featured the couple’s courtship which started when Harry first saw Meghan on Instagram in 2016 and how he proposed to her in 2017. The next half of the Netflix show will focus on his feud with his 40-year-old brother, Prince William and the couple’s royal exit.
