Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally released the first three episodes of the Netflix documentary series.
The Sussexes didn’t waste any time trying to repair the rift with the Royal Family. Instead, they yet again attacked them in several ways regarding the past. As the couple gave viewers an insight into their love story and upbringing, they also fast forwarded to the period wherein Meghan first became a fixture of the Firm.
Amongst other things, Meghan spoke candidly on her relationship with Kate Middleton, recalling one incident during their first dinner together. Suffice to say the claws are out, and they look set to stay that way.
Harry and Meghan Markle had millions of royal fans holding their breaths before their documentary series was released last Thursday on Netflix. The Royal Family were likely anticipating it too; eagerly waiting to see what Harry and Meghan would reveal about them. However, the Sussexes focused more on their history – at least to begin with.
The first three episodes of the documentary mainly explore Harry and Meghan’s childhood years. Moreover, the couple give us insight into the early days of their relationship, and even a sneak peek at the messages the two sent each other during that initial phase.
The episodes included new intimate interviews and never-before-seen footage of the Sussexes. Prince Harry laid out the story of how the couple met in full, revealing that Meghan first caught his eye on Instagram when she had appeared in a mutual friend’s video.
Meghan appeared in said video wearing a filter that gave her dog ears. It was apparently enough to peak Harry’s interest.
“I was like, who is that?” Harry said in the documentary.
One of their mutual friends thereafter introduced Meghan to Harry – and the rest, as they say, is history.
Harry was over the moon when he started dating Meghan. A friend of his who appeared in the documentary explained just how happy and excited the prince was.
“Guys, I met a girl,” the friend recalled Harry saying. “We just met, but I think she’s the one.”
Meghan, meanwhile, explained how she and Harry shared a special connection from the beginning. Even though their relationship was long-distance in the beginning – and a secret to the world – it never stopped them.
“Everything was text and FaceTime, we’d talk for hours. It felt exciting but not in the way people would assume it would be,” Meghan said. “It was just relaxed and easy.”
Harry and Meghan managed to battle through their long-distance relationship. They married in 2018, before leaving the Royal Family around two years later.
Meghan has previously spoken out about the treatment she received from the royals. In the documentary she reveals new details, including the initial reception she got in the UK.
Some of the media coverage was flat-out racist, though Meghan also received plenty of public adoration.
