Harry and Meghan ‘us vs everyone else’ Netflix doc ‘won’t change many minds’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell Netflix documentary sets up a clear "us vs everyone else" attitude that is "not going to change many minds", an expert has warned.

The final three episodes of the explosive documentary series released today (December 15) exposed several royal revelations with damaging claims including William, Prince of Wales "shouting" at Harry and King Charles leaking stories to the press.

But Edward Coram-James, a crisis management expert and CEO of Go Up, told the Daily Star that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's attempts to put the blame onto everyone else is not an effective way to improve their reputation.

He explained: "It sets up a clear 'us vs everyone else'. Either we’re right, or everyone else is right, but it can’t be a bit of both.

"In terms of PR, this is one of the most basic no-go areas, and if the Sussexes are doing this as part of an image rehabilitation plan then I believe that they are being advised very poorly."

The reputation expert pointed out this might mean they are instead focusing on securing "headlines and exposure".

He added: "The documentary is not going to change many minds. Opinions on the Sussexes have been baked in for a long time now.

"There are many that love them, and those viewers will walk away with those feelings reaffirmed, seeing them as victims of a carefully crafted smear campaign orchestrated by none other than Meghan and Harry’s own families.

"Those that dislike them will continue to question why a couple that insist their motive is to find a quiet life, keep on doing things that seem destined to achieve the exact opposite."
