Harry and Meghan want peace but seek revenge with uncertain consequences

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new Netflix documentary, released on Thursday (December 15), saw the pair release a barrage of new claims against the Palace.

Experts claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are still "seeking revenge" despite using their royal titles to attract lucrative deals with the likes of Netflix and Spotify, with commentator Richard Fitzwilliams claiming they are "attacking the institution".

"Harry wants an apology for what he sees as collusion between the royal family and the press which he claims was arranged," Fitzwilliams said.

"Also there is the issue of the brothers, once so close, now at loggerheads with Harry’s memoir out soon.

"Harry and Meghan were in control here, with the Royal Family unlikely to issue a statement about the docuseries but the future is so uncertain.

"They rely on their royal status for their lucrative contracts and yet attack the institution. They may want love and peace, they also seek revenge with uncertain consequences."

The pair have already faced renewed calls from critics saying they should be stripped of their royal titles.

Taking to Twitter, one royal fan said: "So sick of the Harry and Meghan show.

"Feel sorry for them, but they made their bed. They’ve had their say, now it’s time to put up and shut up.

"Time to take away their royal titles?"

Another added: "What I don’t get is if the royal family is so horrible, why do you insist on keeping your titles and using them for profit?"

Others weren't quite so unforgiving, however, and backed the Duke and Duchess.

"All these people calling for Harry & Meghan to lose their titles and for Harry to be removed from the line of succession, I notice they aren't asking for Andrew to be stripped of his title or his place in the line of succession."

The final three episodes contained numerous claims against Buckingham Palace, including that bullying allegations against Meghan had deliberately been released immediately before she and Harry released their Oprah interview in a bid to deflect attention away from their bombshell claims.

"The timing of the bullying story has even been admitted by the journalist that wrote it that it was done explicitly because of the Oprah interview," a commentator said in the programme.

"Harry and Meghan's spokesperson tells us and The Times this: 'The Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma.'"

Harry also claimed his older brother, Prince William, had shouted at him in a "terrifying" exchange.

"It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me, and my father say things that just simply weren't true, and my grandmother quietly sit there, and sort of take it all in," Harry revealed in the penultimate episode of the six-part docuseries.

"But you have to understand that, from the family's perspective, especially from hers, there are ways of doing things, and her ultimate sort of mission, goal, slash responsibility is the institution.
