Buckingham’s anger over… Megflix: A message that played on the “air” of the documentary was denied

A Buckingham Palace source has denied the Sussexes’ claims that the royal family had refused to cooperate on the hit Netflix series

Anger seems to be brewing in Buckingham for… Megflix as characterized by the British newspaper Daily Mai.

The royal family on Thursday questioned the credibility of the documentary (which others say is a reality show) “Harry and Meghan” on Netflix.

A Buckingham Palace source has denied claims by the Sussexes that the royal family had refused to co-operate for the much-lauded six-episode series, which was released exactly three months after Queen Elizabeth’s death.

Meghan and Harry have used their $100m deal with the streaming giant to deliver further blows to the Royal Family in episodes described as transatlantic ‘television bombs’.

Tellingly, the first episode opened with a sharp attack on Buckingham Palace with an on-screen message that read: “Members of the Royal Family declined to comment on the content of this series.” But just hours after the first three episodes aired, royal officials in London insisted they had never been asked to respond.

The source was clear that “neither Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace nor any family members were approached for comment regarding the content of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix series.”

The source said there would be no official comment from the King or the Prince of Wales at the moment about the show’s inflammatory content, which includes allegations of racism against Meghan and her child with Grace and “unconscionable bias’ and a series of attacks targeting Charles, William, Kate Middleton and other members of the royal family.

Kensington Palace, i.e. William and Kate later clarified that they received an email from a production company (Archewell) about Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary. The press team reached out to Archewell and Netflix to verify if the message was genuine, but did not receive a response. The email did not contain the substance of Harry and Meghan’s claims as developed in the series, Kensington notes.
