Harry and Meghan, who are likely the most talked about couple nowadays thanks to the trailer for their Netflix documentary, attended the evening for the Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award Gala in New York City and were recipients of the award.
The trailer caused quite a stir and many believe that the members of the Firm are not happy with it, but the Sussexes seem not to care as they are only focused on their business ventures. Among the rest, Harry is releasing his memoir on January 10, which is expected to reveal juicy details regarding his personal life and his relationship with his family.
From what we could see, the new Netflix documentary opens with a woman’s voice asking why Harry and Meghan started their journey in the first place. Then we saw photos of the couple, including holiday selfies, Harry playing the guitar, and their wedding day.
“No one sees what is happening behind closed doors,” Harry could be heard saying. “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”
Meghan adds, “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”
Regarding what the documentary series will be about, a Netflix spokesperson said: “In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.”
According to royal experts, the teaser trailer couldn’t have come at a worst time, just when Prince William and Kate were in the US for the Earthshot Prize Awards in Boston.
“Here it is, the day before Prince William and Catherine’s big royal event in the USA. Bitter Prince Harry and Meghan,” royal expert Richard Eden shared on Twitter.
“I’m appalled by the trailer for Prince Harry and Meghan’s Netflix reality show – and so are Prince William and Catherine’s inner circle.”
“Right on cue, Harry and Meghan drop the trailer for their victimhood fest on Netflix. Shameless,” GB News presenter Dan Wootton said. “Meghan has already destroyed the Markles. Now Harry is trying to destroy the Windsors. Small mercy that the late Queen doesn’t have to live through this.”
The second trailer shows Harry saying, “No one knows the full truth. We know the full truth,” which caused even greater interest in the documentary.
The royals are said not to be happy with this project.
“The Prince and Princesses’ team will wait to see what’s in the Netflix series before deciding what to do, but you can see the direction of travel,” a source told Express about William and Kate’s opinion regarding the documentary.
“I genuinely think it’s going to be worse than the royals can imagine,” a source in contact with a Netflix production insider told Mirror. “I’m told that it’s going to be utterly explosive and will be very damaging.”
“A lot of people are either pro-Sussex or pro-William and Kate, but there’s a belief that this documentary will bring people onside with Harry and Meghan. The big question is that, whatever the revelations are, who will people side with after seeing the show. It has that feeling like the public will have to choose,” another source told the paper.
“Whatever comes out, some people will think that Harry is betraying his family and that it’s unforgivable. But if what finally airs is as seismic as we’re led to believe, then it may be good for the Sussexes. There’s been some talk the documentary has been toned down, but at the moment, that’s wrong.”
Harry and Meghan, on the other hand, are simply living their lives. On Tuesday, they flew to New York where they received the Ripple of Hope Award, honoring those who have demonstrated “an unwavering commitment to social change and worked to protect and advance equity, justice, and human rights.”
Among the rest, Meghan was praised for her bravery to speak about mental health openly.
For the occasion, the former actress wore a beautifully elegant custom-made Louis Vuitton white gown and Princes Diana’s aquamarine ring.
During the gala, the couple was sitting next to each other, smiling. “They might as they go to post handhold, but to keep it continuous tells me that they rely on each other and they want to be seen as a united couple,” body language expert Patti Wood said and added that Meghan and Harry’s love differs from many other couples walking the red carpet.
Wood added that the Sussexes use mutual touch,” when one person responds to touch by grabbing their hand or touching the waist or back, for example.
The expert also said that Harry and Meghan’s interlaced handhold “shows a desire to kind of mesh and be seen as joint.”
We are yet to see what the documentary and Harry’s memoir would really do for the relationship between him and the rest of the royals.
