Prince Harry speaks out on Netflix documentary and media appearances

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently spoken to Anderson Cooper about their decision to publicly discuss their grievances with the royal family. Prince Harry explained that efforts to address the issue privately had backfired, and that the family’s policy of ‘never complain, never explain’ had been used against them. The couple have released a Netflix documentary series, ‘Harry & Meghan’, which has provided a wealth of footage from their private lives and highlights a range of grievances they experienced while working as royals. While the documentary has received high ratings in the U.K., it has largely been met with negative reviews and a drop in approval for the couple among the British public.

The couple’s decision to be public about their grievances has been a source of criticism, with people questioning why they would want to draw attention to the issue if they had previously cited the unwanted press attention as a reason for stepping back from royal life. The couple’s press secretary has responded to the criticism by accusing critics of creating a “distorted narrative” and claiming that it was “entirely untrue” that the Sussexes had cited wanting privacy from the press as a reason for stepping back from being working royals.

Prince Harry’s full 60 Minutes interview will air on January 8, while his memoir, Spare, will be released on January 10. It is yet to be seen how the public will respond to the couple’s story, and how the royal family will address the issue.
