Prince Harry has ‘absolutely no regrets’ and is ‘delighted’ with Netflix series with Meghan
Prince Harry was reportedly ‘delighted’ to see the first three episodes of his Netflix docu-series airing this week and has ‘absolutely no regrets’, despite criticism from many in Britain.
A close friend of his late mother, Princess Diana, told the Mirror that the Duke of Sussex hopes his brother Prince William and his father King Charles will watch the series to get a better idea of what he and Meghan had to do to cross.
The source told the newspaper: “Harry is delighted with the story of the documentary and how he and Meghan met.
“The reason for doing this was to share their truth about their lives. He feels it tells the story he wanted the world to hear and has absolutely no regrets.

A source has said the Duke of Sussex hopes his brother Prince William and father King Charles will watch the series to get a better idea of what he and Meghan (pictured at their wedding) had to go through .
Harry also still hopes he can make “some kind of peace” with the rest of the royal family, although many believe the series has only made any chance of a reconciliation less likely.
William is said to be angry at the disrespect he feels Harry showed their grandmother when she was alive during the Megxit Saga.
And sources believe the explosive documentary – which the heir to the throne is understood to have not watched, but is likely to at some point – will do little to change his mind.
He is also said to be suspicious of Harry’s motives given that he has a book coming out early next year.
“All relationships are built on trust, but for members of the royal family, who live their lives in the spotlight, doubly so,” a friend said.
“The prince is a very private man and what Harry does is anathema to everything he believes in. For that alone, many believe it’s unlikely he’ll ever be able to mend his relationship with them. Too much water passed under the bridge.
After Meghan recalled her awkward first encounter with William and Kate in episode two, Harry again appears to snub his brother in the second volume trailer by not including the Prince and Princess of Wales in the plethora of wedding photos that broke. on the screen.
The new trailer, released today, shows a series of never-before-seen photos of the couple dancing at their 2018 wedding to the likes of pop legend Elton John and Suits actor Abigail Spencer.
But in an apparent snub, none of the footage from the lavish reception at Windsor Castle includes the groom’s brother, despite Prince William serving as best man at the wedding, breaking tradition.

In a clip from the 2018 reception, Meghan said: “I really wanted the music to be fun. Even our first dance.
She turns to her husband and asks him: ‘Song of 1,000 Dances? A thousand dances? I’m always wrong.
The Duchess sings the lyrics to the 60s soul hit Land Of A Thousand Dances, which the couple chose for their first dance.
It’s the first time the couple have publicly acknowledged the song they chose for their first dance.
Initial reports suggested it was Whitney Houston’s hit I Wanna Dance With Somebody after Meghan called it a “happy song” in a 2016 magazine interview.
But the Finding Freedom biography later contradicted earlier reports by claiming the first dance was to Wilson Pickett’s 1968 track “I’m in Love.”
The clip was released amid the fallout from the first three episodes, which aired at 8 a.m. Thursday morning.
The couple have since received criticism on the show for attacking British institutions as they discussed their experiences – including racism – and almost half of Britons argue the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should be stripped of their titles.
A Mail on Sunday survey found that 44% of people think they should lose their titles, while just 19% disagree.
A similar proportion, 42%, think Harry should be left out of the line of succession, with 23% disagreeing.
Almost a third, 28%, think they should not be allowed to attend the coronation of King Charles III, with 31% disagreeing.
And royal insiders have been particularly upset by the Netflix program’s criticism of Queen Elizabeth and her Commonwealth legacy, which has been dismissed as ‘Empire 2.0’.
A source pointed out that Harry and Meghan were previously chairman and vice-chairman of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which supports the empowerment of young people in Commonwealth countries, and had been happy to be associated with it “until they quit their jobs to make money.

They also believe the Sussexes’ decision to secretly record 15 hours of video logs, which they handed over to documentary makers, was an “appalling” betrayal of trust. They began filming in March 2020 – almost 12 months before they officially stepped down as senior royals.
“Harry has made it a virtue to protect his grandmother throughout this saga – repeatedly emphasizing the respect he had for her and excluding her from his claims about racism. And yet, is this what they were planning all the time? It’s appalling,” another source said.
The Duke and Duchess signed lucrative deals, believed to be worth over £100million, with Netflix and Spotify after leaving the Royal Family.
In the first three episodes of the six-part series, Harry accused the Royal Family of having a ‘tremendous level of unconscious bias’ and colluding with a media outlet that wanted to ‘destroy’ Meghan, as well as offending his father. and her brother about their choice of bride.
