There is much irony at the opening of the eagerly awaited Netflix documentary series, Harry & Meghan.
It started with Britain’s Prince Harry filming himself from London Heathrow’s Windsor Suite, specifically the VIP area for ordinary people like us.
While wasting little time criticizing the traditions and pitfalls of the British royal family, he continues to take advantage of the benefits that come from being born into that very life of privilege and wealth.
However, with that said, the famous duo is bursting with charm. They are charismatic and enthrall the viewer.
The series opening features loads of great archival footage from his early days growing up in the royal family and of course, with his late mother Princess Diana.
Beautifully shot with just the right amount of construction, the opening episode is a must-see TV show.
Harry & Meghan is a series of six parts. The first three episodes dropped today.
When it comes to earning a reported €100 million fee for the Netflix series, Harry and Meghan don’t disappoint.
The revelations come dense and fast in the early minutes, taking us back to March 2020 when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left England for the first time after ‘Megxit’.
Harry, or ‘H’, as his other half calls him, speaks of the “hate that has been stirred up over the past three years towards my wife and son”.
“This is duty and service and I feel part of this family, it is my duty to uncover the exploitation and bribery that occurs in our media,” he said. speak. “This isn’t just about our story, this is always so much bigger than us.”
He then alluded to a conspiracy in the British media.

“No one knows the whole truth. We know the whole truth and the media knows the whole truth because they participated in it. And I think anyone else in my situation would do the same,” he said.
Meghan, who has Archie (3) and Lilibet (1) with Harry, then spoke of “not representing something, they are ruining us”.
Episode one explores Harry’s relationship with his mother before she died when he was just 11 years old.
Harry recalled how Diana used to make decisions with her heart, not her mind. He insisted that he do the same, saying, “I am my mother’s son.”
You can’t help but sympathize when he reveals that he has very little early memory of his mother because he thinks he has “blocked a lot of memories of her”.
Harry talks about growing up in the spotlight of the world’s media and most of his memories are of being “besieged by the paparazzi”.
This is true in a scene when Princess Diana rushes to protect her children on a ski slope. She politely asked the paparazzi to leave them alone to enjoy some alone time.
He said: “My mother was harassed all her life with my father but after they separated, the harassment took it to a whole new level.
He spoke of “the pain and suffering of the women who marry this establishment”.
He was nervous to meet ‘M’ – the way he called Meghan – thaShe won’t be shunned by media attention.
Much of Meghan’s personality and personality is very similar to my mother’s. She has the same compassion, she has the same empathy. She has the same confidence. She has warmth about her, he said.
“I accept that there will be people around the world who fundamentally disagree with what I did and how I did it. But I knew I had to do everything I could to protect my family, especially after what happened to my mother. I don’t want history to repeat itself.”
The series then goes back to August 31, 1997, when Princess Diana was literally hunted to death by the paparazzi, dying after her car crashed into a Paris tunnel.
You will need an iron heart to not feel sorry for the two princes who lost their mother at such a young age and in such traumatic circumstances.
The impact it must have had on a child Harry’s age is undeniable.
The viewer then sees the student Eton rebelling against all of that during his teenage years. Titles are displayed, one of which reads “Hellraiser Harry”.
He says he’s a young boy trying to work it all out “without a lot of help or guidance, which doesn’t seem fair”.
He seems to carry a lot of that hurt with him today (and who can blame him?) when he compares it to how his late mother was treated by the media the series of negative publicity that Meghan has received.
Episode one also takes viewers back to how Harry and Meghan first met in July 2016 through a mutual friend.
They are instantly attracted and quickly fly to Botswana secretly to get to know each other a little better.
On October 29, 2016, they heard news that their romance was about to fall apart, leading to worldwide unpopular headlines about the ex. suit actress.
There are references to her being “Straight outta Compton”, as well as special mentions of her being of mixed race. One headline claimed that she was an “unusual” person when it came to the possibility of being the prince’s wife.
“Watching another woman in my life go through this bulimia, it was hard. It’s basically hunter versus prey,” said Harry.
When the opening episodes go on, not even Crown can top it for drama and sharp details about the inner workings of a fascinating family.
