Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's Netflix documentary Harry
One of the things that causes excitement is what Meghan says about the engagement interview she gave with Harry at the end of 2017. Just like Prince William and Kate years before, Harry and Meghan talked about their love and their plans for the future. But today they see the TV moment with different eyes. Meghan calls the interview a "staged reality show", they had rehearsed the interview down to the last detail in advance. "So we did the press thing outside and then we went right in, took off the coat, sat down and did the interview, so it was all in the same moment," she says in the documentary.
If they were told the questions beforehand, Meghan answered: "Yes. But also: 'And then there will be a moment when they want to see the ring, so show the ring.'" They "didn't have to tell their story". allowed, explains the Duchess, to which Harry interjects that they were never allowed to tell their story, not until now.
Journalist Mishal Husain was in charge of the engagement interview that the BBC broadcast at the time. Husain was made aware of the Duchess' allegations live on the radio show Today (BBC Radio 4) on Thursday, when a colleague quoted Meghan's words. The two journalists laughed about the allegations on the show. Spicy, with which choice of words Husain then reacted. Because the journalist quoted the deceased Queen of all people.
As a reminder, after Harry and Meghan had teased the Royal Family in the past, the Queen released a statement saying "recollections may vary." It is probably no coincidence that Husain responded to the Duchess's allegations, "We know that memories on the subject may differ, but my memory is certainly very strong: I was asked for an interview and I have this interview guided."
It's far from the only taunt the ex-royals have directed at the British press. You can read about the greatest excitement of the documentary here.
