Charles on alert as Harry blasts Royal Family for saying ‘why should Meghan be protected?'



In episode two of the documentary on Netflix, the couple open up about how their relationship became public in 2016. Meghan Markle reflected on school and family life before meeting Prince Harry, and the episode features interviews from her family.

The focus then turns to racism in the press, when Harry says: "Within that first week it had become public knowledge, the first story was 'Harry's girl is (almost) straight outta Compton'."

Meghan admitted she had "no idea" race would even factor into the situation, saying: "Firstly I'm just not from Compton, I have never lived in Compton. 

"So it's factually incorrect, but why do you have to make a dig at Compton?"

Harry said the direction of the palace was "don't say anything, but for what we were trying to understand is, as far as a lot of the family were concerned, everything she was being put through, they had been put through as well".

The series has been shrouded in controversy since it was first announced due to its timing amid other Royal events.

The trailer had dropped at the time of the Prince and Princess of Wales' trip to Boston in the US.

Despite the backlash, couples counsellor Lindsay George said they had kept a united front throughout.

Speaking to she said: "With Harry and Meghan, their families and pressurised environments left them in a uniquely challenging position and put their relationship through a real test.

"People don’t always get along, and that’s OK, but it can become very taxing on a relationship if there’s disagreement between partners and key family members.

“But through it all, Harry and Meghan have kept a united front and showed us they are a team."

The Netflix series is airing across two parts and is made up of six episodes in total.

The final three episodes will arrive next week, on December 15.
