Prince Harry said that King Charles lied to the family at a meeting about his brother shouting at him while their late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, did nothing.
He reflected on the terrible experience, saying, “Having my brother yell and rage at me, having my father say things that were just not true, and having my grandma silently sit there and kind of take it all in.”
However, you should know that her family has its traditions and that the institution itself is her ultimate aim, objective, and obligation.
He elaborated on how he saw his mother, Princess Diana, withdraw farther within herself as she aged.
The “pain and anguish of women marrying into this institution,” as Harry put it, is the subject of this documentary.
Meghan said she wanted to terminate her life as she dealt with the negative attention she received frin the media.
“I didn’t deal with it especially well,” Harry said on the show. He said he had “handled it as institutional Harry as opposed to spouse Harry.”
It has been made clear that neither Buckingham Palace nor Kensington Palace will comment on the series or its contents.
