Prince Harry implies royals lied to protect his brother in latest Netflix trailer

In a new teaser unveiled on Monday for the remaining episodes of a Netflix documentary series on him and his wife Meghan, Prince Harry seemed to imply that the British royal family was willing to tell lies to protect his elder brother Prince William.

The first three episodes of the much awaited documentary, which aired last week, were mostly concerned with how the couple had been treated by the British tabloid press and how that had affected their relationship.

The royal family had been braced for renewed criticism since the couple delivered scathing attacks on some members, including his father King Charles and heir William, most notably in an interview last year with TV show host Oprah Winfrey.

While the initial episodes contained no new bombshells for the royal family, in the latest trailer, shared on Twitter by Netflix ahead of the release of the remaining three episodes on Thursday, Harry refers to “institutional gaslighting”.

At one point, Meghan also says: “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves.”

Buckingham Palace has said it would not be commenting on the series. Netflix said that members of the royal family had declined to comment within the series, but a royal source said neither the palace nor representatives of Prince William or other royals had been approached.
