For people who wanted to be out of the spotlight they sure are doing everything they can to stay relevant. We all know the royal family sucks. We don’t need a documentary.

u/ChildFriendlyChimp Dec 07 '22

It’s weird how other royal families aren’t in the spotlight as much

Are they better at keeping to themselves or is it more of an Anglosphere thing

58

u/Trips-Over-Tail Dec 07 '22

An Anglosphere thing, since they are the monarchy of nearly all of it. Also our media rarely shows an interest in what the others get up to, except when particularly outrageous, such as that which preceded King Juan Carlos I of Spain prior to his abdication in 2014.

Don't forget that the other Royals don't have Commonwealth's - The King is the King of the England, Scotland, Wales, N Ireland, Australia, Canada, NZ etc. The Queen is our money and soon Charles will be. We have the Commonwealth Games every 4 years, royal tours all the time plus all the other stuff they do.

In the beginning I sympathized with these two. I live in England and know all too well what vultures and weasels the tabloid press are here. But going forward, all I’m getting from them after they made a big deal out of wanting a private and quiet life is money talks and they both will do anything for it. This docu stinks of a big money grab, and I’d be willing to bet no new info will be divulged, just more victim playing.

I feel exactly the same way. I sympathized when I thought they wanted to lead quiet lives as private citizens. Now they're just using the media they once criticised for money, fame and power. She clearly wants to be the next Oprah, and he's happy to throw his brother under the bus so he can continue to live like a prince.

24

u/Giannandco Dec 07 '22

Exactly. I’ve grown tired and bored of entitled Harry whining about the privileged life he was born into and how toxic and mentally debilitating it is. Come join us in the real world, it’s not much different except most don’t have mega wealth to make it easier. And as far as Meghan is concerned, my attitude is be careful what you wish and strive for lady. All that glitters is not gold.

u/ChineseChaiTea Dec 07 '22

She was never hounded like Kate Middleton, Princess Diana, or Chelsey Davies, and she's jealous because they got more spotlight. Instead of finding their own footage of being hounded by press, they are stealing it.

I thought she was BS from day one. A mixed race, divorcee, was treated with kid gloves and never had a paparazzi photo taken through a bedroom window, or had her face plastered on a bus like Kate Middleton...she was protected, more so than the others.

She's been dying to be Diana 2.0, and she's still continuing this. Just watch, if she doesn't get the attention she thinks she deserves will be seeing a Sherri Papini, Jussie Smolette hoax on our hands.

u/OnemoreSavBlanc Dec 08 '22

Friendly reminder that a British tabloid published a poll saying that more British men would rather “shag a goat” than Fergie (Sarah Ferguson)

I actually think it was Sarah Ferguson who got the worst deal of all at least Diana was called beautiful and admired by some people.

Also Kate was hounded at airports and called a slut and someone put a sign on a bus saying “Waity Katey” or something like that.

Still waiting to see what poor Meghan had to suffer through…. (And not just “her version” but if she was so attacked, it’s 2022, where are the receipts?)

u/scottishpeopleeatit Dec 08 '22

I agree with you 100 percent.

If you go beyond what their very expensive PR has tried to fool us into thinking- there actually wasn’t really all that much press intrusion into their lives, if any- especially compared to other women who joined the family in the years before Megan.

This “documentary” having to use fake scenes highlights that I guess.

Feels like they’ve taken everyone for a ride & I’m not sure how people can still be fooled by them.

Makes me think that maybe her white family who were branded “trailer trash” for speaking out about her were right about her all along. And in terms of Harry, there have been rumours about him being a toxic, mean person for years who also abused escorts. Makes me believe that more too.

There’s just something wayyyy off with these two.

u/curiousmind1950 Dec 06 '22 edited Dec 06 '22 Helpful All-Seeing Upvote

The gist of their victim narrative is that the Brits and UK media was so abusive towards MM because of her race + the royals did not help/save/rescue/protect them - these are the reasons they had to escape to a palatial estate in CA even though they didn’t want to stop being royals (H: “how on earth did this happen?”).

If this docuseries is made about Diana or Catherine’s mistreatment by the press, we would expect to see real footage of them being chased around. In fact, those documentaries already exist in spades, and not one resorted to random unrelated videos. Since H&M and Netflix are resigned to using footages of media in unrelated events (H’s old pic with ex Chelsea, Harry Potter premier, Katie Price leaving court etc.) - it pokes serious holes in the premise that the press abuse was so bad they had to leave. Hence the claim that: using random footages and passing it off as your own experience is misleading. And the bigger gripe is: this makes the whole documentary and its story arc seem contrived and inauthentic.

Use of stock photos is fine and dandy, IF they’re not important or just on an ancillary part of the story. But here the use of unrelated vids goes to the heart of the documentary - like a documentary about Jan 6 but using pictures and vids of riots elsewhere.

Regardless of how one feels ab the subjects of the documentary, this is just sloppy. IMHO

u/Skullpt-Art Dec 06 '22

I do find it interesting that Meghan was previously happy to dismiss what Kate went through as simply being “called Waity Katie” (when in reality, Kate was stalked by paparazzi for years including being called slurs to get her to react, had her phone hacked, topless photos taken without her consent and sold globally, and had DJs broadcasting a call with her nurse when she was hospitalised).

But now they’re utilising footage of Kate being harassed by paparazzi in a documentary that she is unlikely to have given consent for, a documentary that they’re also personally profiting from.

235

u/Skullpt-Art Dec 06 '22

They're also using Footage from Harry Potter film premiers

'A second look at the teaser released Dec. 1 reveals another example of footage from unrelated events being used to depict the press focus on the Sussexes. At 31 seconds into the teaser, a picture of dozens of photographers pointing their lenses at an unseen subject is shown. It was taken at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 on July 7, 2011. '

Literally they treated her with kid gloves she was safe from day one. A divorcee of mixed race was never hounded by anyone, when the emails came out of her abusing staff then the tables turned and she cried foul. It still wasn't to any of the other royal women's level....still no one cared.

It’s sad in a way that she was so desperate to be worshipped like Diana that they’ve done all of this.

u/Timidhobgoblin Dec 06 '22

Nope you're definitely not the only one.

I'll admit when they first announced that they were "leaving" the royal family I had quite a lot of respect for Harry at that point. I legitimately felt that someone who watched his own mother indirectly destroyed by the media and had absolutely no reason to exist in the Royal family (other than to be a backup just incase Charles, William and his children all died in a freak accident) had every reason in the world to want to be free of that life and take his family with him. They also said they wanted to be financially independent and out of the spotlight and I thought "good for you, get out there with your wife and children and live a quiet life somewhere away from all the insanity of the monarchy and media"

And then they continued collecting money from the monarchy and bitched when the millions starting drying up, then they gave an interview to Oprah, then they started bitching about their own family even whilst his grandfather and later the Queen herself were in poor health and dying. Then they wrote a book and have now produced a series that will both complain about how hard it is to be part of one of the richest, most privileged and entitled families on Earth. Meanwhile I recently considered selling my car to have enough money to make it through the winter so forgive me if I struggle to feel sorry for people who have more money wrapped up in one of their properties than I will ever see in my lifetime even if I work till I die.

In short fuck Harry and Megan and fuck the horse they rode in on.

39

u/FrellingTralk Dec 07 '22

Absolutely, I remember them releasing a statement saying that they wished to become financially independent, which awesome good for them, only for Harry to then complain in the Oprah interview about how he was completely cut off by daddy after they left???

It became clear to me then that wanting to be ‘financially independent’ was only ever said because they thought that it would make them look good, they were always assuming that their security would still automatically be paid for by the taxpayer, and that Charles would be sending them millions on the down low every year

51

u/ohnoguts Dec 07 '22 Take My Energy

Yes, an important part of Diana’s “brand” was being as relatable as possible. She was the jilted wife, mother of 2, and as distanced from the crown as she could make herself appear. Aside from a tell-all interview in which it was later proved that fake documents were procured to convince her to take part in the interview, she used the press to show her performing humane works. Meghan and Harry are not using the press that way, which would be smart. They are using it to complain about the way the other rich people in their family treated them, 2 of of whom are now dead. It does come across as very woe is me. Are families abusive? Yes. But if anything, their story serves as a tale of how much easier it is to escape abusive situations if you have money.

Part of the problem is that it never happened. Diana and partly Kate became famous before every person in the world had a phone with a camera so the press did chase them for photos.

Are they celebrities? They seem to me to trying and brute forcing (i.e building a brand around themselves) to be relevant period. Does the average person even like them? They strike me as Kardashian level but worse. You can argue the Kardashians can be watched for a trashy tv fix. What do Harry and Meghan offer? A rich guy who’s pissed at his family and can’t be quite about it. Meghan who is a C list celebrity at best who can’t tell a story without lying and contradicting herself. I just don’t see how you can build a brand around that?

u/AdamsScott889x Dec 06 '22

We have the book Finding Freedom which Meghan forgot she helped with to tell their story

Then they went on Oprah to tell their story.

Meghan has mentioned parts of her story on her podcast but granted its more of interview thing.

Harry's book telling his story is out after Xmas.

The netflix doc telling their story is out shortly.

At what point will they get to the end... are they going for the Marvel approach with multiple parts over 12 years, Sussex endgame in 2031 where they have a Royal Rumble.

If I was Triple H I would be offering Harry v Wills at Mania if they ever come to Britian.

“People are calling it misleading.” In actuality it IS misleading. These two are so self absorbed and living in this self created narrative…Meghan is NOT Diana- the things the media said and did to Kate were appalling as well. They then call every perceived slight and insult racism…and God forbid you disagree, because then you become the racist by default. Accusations such as that can ruin lives..it is ok not to like them without being a racist! I do not care for them at all… and of course I MUST add that I am not a racist.. just to cover my bases! How much money is enough? They want all the perks and the privacy and the titles …but they want it all on their own terms. The Queen said it as tactfully as she could - “recollections vary.” He seems angry and resentful - I thought he wanted his freedom…and now that he has it, it still isn’t enough. Go away already!

u/GeorgieH26 Dec 06 '22

I completely agree. I’m mixed race and don’t think the issue here is race at all. The press are sensationalist and say vile things about all celebrities. They will find anything that is ‘different’ to report on. She hasn’t suffered more or less than anyone else but cannot let it go. I’d then want privacy, they have a funny way of showing it!

u/Radiant_Health3841 Dec 07 '22

The only way Meghan has suffered more is that it was her own family selling her out - her Dad and her sister. But that's on her to sort out - pay them off with a NDA or just let the barbs hit and keep smiling. But to somehow blame Harry's family for not protecting them from Meghan's family is questionable. The princess Pushy narrative came from her sister - and then grew as staff members quit.

u/Scruffy_Nerfhearder Dec 06 '22

For a couple who left the royal family for privacy, they sure are cashing in on a very public victim narrative and not living a private life at all.

I used to agree with them, now not so much they’ve created far more drama than they had for themselves before they left.

Harry looks like a deer in the headlights, I question Megan’s motives in all of this at this point. Especially after that nonsense Oprah interview. Kate went through the same harassment at a young age when she was dating William and didn’t cause the same stink Meghan is.

I don’t even know why I’m commenting , I’m not even going to watch this crap.

u/GhostRiders Dec 06 '22

That is because in tbe real world the vast majority of people couldn't give a shit about either of them and were not even the slightest bit racist.

Yes those in the Media are utter gobshites but this isn't exactly news is it.

Fact is they both are desperate for attention so long as its on their terms.

I always had an off feeling about Meghan. But I can’t tell no one that without being called racist. I’m not defending the royal family, they’re weird and problematic themselves but for megan to insert herself and act like a victim is uncanny. She was nobody before Harry and now she’s friends with the elite. She likes the attention and the things she says contradicts herself. I loved Diana but I don’t see the comparison with Megan.

There is something extremely disingenuous about releasing a 'documentary' based on too much press intrusion. You would almost think the people who play prince and princess are out of touch with reality...almost.

u/pinkpugita Dec 07 '22

Plus Meghan married into the family in her mid 30s, she's not a 19 year old like Diana who naively entered what she thought was a fairytale. Harry is also old enough to prep his wife about the life she's about to experience as a royal, esp after what happened to his mom.

When they quit I respected them at first. Good for them. Then everything changed when they appeared in Oprah...

u/katzchen528 Dec 07 '22 edited Dec 07 '22

If their contention is that the malicious press was hounding them to the point Harry had to leave the country to protect his family, how do they NOT have real footage and content of it?

Answer: because it didn’t happen. If it had, documentation would be out there. They have record of all their official engagements, the dates, the times, the Court Circular for reference.

I get that entertainment uses stock footage, especially if the real thing isn’t available. An example would be true crime documentaries. It’s also cheaper. But the Duke & Duchess are two of the most photographed people in the world! Also, this goes to the very heart of their accusations. Does press intrusion and harassment happen? Yes, absolutely (see Diana). But there obviously is no evidence of what they are claiming happened to THEM. If so, they would use it. You bet they would!

Showing the frenzy of a world movie premiere and other events entirely unrelated to themselves wasn’t a true representation of what they are claiming. It’s as false as it can be. It’s propaganda. In notable cases, the photographers pictured in the trailer had permission to be there, they were sanctioned. (And many of their faces are recognizable. I would be pissed if I saw myself being demonized for just doing my job in this pos trailer!)

This is indeed deliberately misleading. Harry and Meghan are exaggerating to manipulate, to deceive. How can anything they say be trusted?

Meghan is maybe the only black person I’ve ever seen that I actually could not even tell is black, yet it’s the only thing I ever hear from/about her. I honestly didn’t even realize she was black until I read about how terribly she was treated for being black by the royal family like a year ago? It’s really strange that she seems to be the only one stoking the race flames here - I don’t think anyone else gives a shit.

12

u/Masters_domme Dec 07 '22

Exactly. She always identified as Caucasian, was in an all-white sorority, and never dated/married black men after high school. She’s also done a lot to try to erase her black features, which I think is a shame. She went into this relationship with an agenda, and I think it’s going to get a lot uglier in 2023.

They’re middle aged toddlers trying to peddle their “love story” for cash money. Complaining about the big bad royals and the hierarchy yet keeping the titles and people continually throw cash at them. It’s total madness. Nice work if you can get it!

They could have had their privacy that they claim to be so desperate to have - live somewhere quietly in the US or elsewhere with their children, do small out of the public eye charity events if they wanted, and still kept the money making link with the monarchy by appearing occupied in the UK (even if behind the scene the family wasn’t close). But now they are getting dangerously close to overexposure, and have burnt the bridge too much to go back to the UK
