London. Prince Harry of England has described as “terrifying” the moment his brother, Prince William, yelled at him during a meeting to decide his future in the British Royal House, according to the Netflix platform documentary, which reveals the scope of his problems in the monarchy.
Netflix posted this Thursday the second part of the documentary “Harry and Meghan”, in which the Duke of Sussex tells details of the difficulties he faced with the now King Charles III and the Prince of Wales, William, when they negotiated his departure from the House Real -in January 2020-, and also from the negative headlines and articles towards Meghan Markle, which, according to Enrique, her family did nothing to deny.
The Duke of Sussex recounted details of the important meeting he held with his family on January 13, 2020 in Sandringham, eastern England, about his plans to move abroad.
Harry says that he had been made several proposals and that he had chosen to have his job to be financially independent and, at the same time, fulfill public commitments to support his grandmother, the late Queen Elizabeth II.
But “quickly,” Harry explains, it became clear that option wasn’t possible, and “it was terrifying to have my brother yell at me and yell at me and my father say things that just weren’t true. And my grandmother, you know, sitting quietly taking it all in.”
“But you have to understand that, from the perspective of the family, especially from hers (queen), there are ways of doing things and her last mission, her objective, responsibility is the institution,” the prince recounted about the meeting.
This second part begins with images of the wedding of Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, in 1947, and shows the popularity of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they got married in Windsor -on the outskirts of London- in May 2018, as well as the success of her official engagements and the positive way in which Meghan was received by the population.
However, the relationship between the dukes and the British royal family changed after the success of their official tour to Australia and the South Pacific at the end of 2018.
Prince Harry believes there was fear in the family that they could do a “better” job than people higher up in the institution.
Among other things, the Duchess of Sussex explains her difficulties in dealing with the restrictions of the Royal House, which supervised what she did, and admitted that she felt the urge to take her own life.
According to the documentary, royal officials spread negative news about the dukes to divert attention from less positive coverage about other members of the royal family.
Meghan Markle’s lawyer, Jenny Afia, affirms, in a part of the program, that she had access to evidence about the information that came out of the palace against the Dukes of Sussex.
Enrique also says that the palace prevented him from seeing his grandmother on one of the visits they made to the United Kingdom when they were already living abroad, and that the Royal House was willing to “lie” to protect his brother, in reference to to the incident in Sandringham in which William yelled at her.
The Royal House, Harry says, had prepared an official statement, which had to be signed by him, which denied that Guillermo had harassed his brother.
“They were happy to lie to protect my brother and for three years they were not willing to tell the truth to protect us,” Enrique complains.
Buckingham Palace has not ruled on this documentary, which has been posted before Prince Henry publishes an autobiography next January.
