Royals ‘happy to lie’ for Prince William, Prince Harry says in new Netflix trailer

Most of the charges were against the media and the palace press operation. (Case)


The trailer for the latest episodes of the docuseries about Prince Harry and his wife Meghan was released on Monday, with the royal feud set to escalate with a claim that Buckingham Palace was “happy to lie” for his brother William.

Meghan, 41, separately claims she was ‘fed to the wolves’ after the couple quit royal life in early 2020 and moved to North America

In an excerpt, Harry, 38, accuses Buckingham Palace of ‘institutional gaslighting’ and says ‘they’ were ‘happy to lie to protect my brother but never wanted to tell the truth to protect us “.

The first three episodes of ‘Harry & Meghan’ were released last Thursday, with the couple – also known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – criticizing the Royal Family for failing to protect her and her mother Diana from tabloid excesses.

Most of the accusations were aimed at the media and the palace press operation, although the couple ran several barbs against the royal family, including unconscious racial bias.

The direct mention of Harry’s brother, heir to the throne, Prince William, 40, in the latest trailer confirmed suspicions that sharper criticism could have been saved for last.

“As we all suspected last week, the gloves are off,” wrote Daily Mail royal correspondent Rebecca English, while her ITV counterpart Chris Ship said: “It’s getting dirty.”

At the end of 2019, Harry all but confirmed a split with his older brother and the couple have reportedly barely spoken since, even at the unveiling of a statue of their mother last year and the September state funeral of their grandmother, the Queen Elizabeth II.

“In previous trailers, Harry has talked about ‘dirty play’ and ‘planting’ stories,” ITV’s Ship rated.

“This clip suggests he’s going to blame his brother, or at least the people around him, for some of the stories about the Sussexes in the press. It’s a dramatic escalation.”

The palace has so far refused to respond to the programme, but commentators have suggested it may be forced to do so if the criticism gets personal.
