Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say they ‘never cited privacy’ for stepping down in wake of commentary on Netflix documentary

There’s been plenty of debate in the wake of the Netflix series released by Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. 

So much so that the pair have released a statement in an attempt to set the record straight. 

Whether you love, loathe or don’t care about the pair, Prince Harry is the King’s youngest son (and fifth in line to the throne) and the Duchess of Sussex is a Hollywood actor.

So let’s break it down, quickly.

What’s happened in the past week?

This week, the royals released a trailer and the first three episodes of their highly anticipated Netflix series, Harry & Meghan.

The show was billed as a “vulnerable look” into their lives.

And it comes after Prince Harry told Oprah Winfrey last year that he and Meghan had to retreat from their roles for his wife’s survival.

How did the first episodes of Harry & Meghan go? 

Critics have been harsh in the days since the first half of the six-part series was released.

“If I were Netflix, I’d want my money back. Because there was nothing ‘bombshell’ or even very new here,” Carol Midgley wrote for The Times in Britain.

“It was beautifully shot but it was repetitive, whingy and boring.”

Stephanie Bunbury from US news site Deadline said that the series failed to add any new insight into the most pressing questions from fans and royal-watchers.
