The director of the documentary about the life of harry and meghanwhich debuted on Netflix in December, accuses the British royal family of wanting “discredit” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, stating that the creators of the series did not contact the Royal House so that the Windsors had the opportunity to comment on information revealed in the series.
Liz Garbuswho is nominated for an Oscar, argues that she tried to contact Buckingham Palace, but that, from the Royal House, “they said no comments were solicited”which, he guarantees, does not correspond to the truth. “They did it to discredit us… and by discrediting us they can also do it in relation to the content of the program”he said in an interview with vanity fair.
At the beginning of the documentary, which became available in early December, there is a note that states that “members of the royal family declined to comment on the content of the series”. Shortly after the airing of the first part of the series, information was released that suggested that neither members of the Windsors, nor Buckingham Palace or Prince William’s office at Kensington Palace, had been asked to comment on what was revealed. throughout the episodes.
THE Netflix maintains that he contacted the King’s and Prince of Wales’s communications departments in due time and gave them the opportunity to react to the content of the documentary. Kensington Palace later responded saying that they had received an email, which came from neither a production company nor the archewell – the founding of the Dukes of Sussex – nor the Netflix.
It should be remembered that the premiere of the series broke audience records and, according to the streamingthe first three episodes reached 81.55 million hours of viewing at the time of the premiere.
