Sunrise reporter: Major issue with Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary

Editing fail in Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary: Sunrise reporter points out glaring mistake during the Sussexes’ attacks on British media

A Sunrise reporter has called out an apparent editing gaffe in Harry and Meghan’s new documentary series, which premiered on Netflix on Thursday.

Sarah Greenhalgh, the London-based European correspondent for 7News, noted how several scenes of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex criticising the British press were illustrated with ‘headlines and soundbites’ from American media outlets.

‘It is mostly about press intrusion,’ she said, summarising the first three episodes.

‘And even though they do criticise mostly the British press, it should be pointed out that many of the worst examples – some of the worst headlines or soundbites – are actually from the American outlets.’

Greenhalgh referenced a scene of the exiled royals being followed by American paparazzi in New York City ‘while criticising the British press’.

It follows calls for Harry and Meghan to lose their royal status because the couple are ‘monetising’ their titles with ‘aggressive and unbelievable’ attacks on Britain.

Harry and Meghan used their $100million deal with the streaming giant to launch fresh swipes at the Royal Family and Britain in shows being described as transatlantic ‘TV bombs’ hurled at The Firm.

As part of their partnership with Netflix, the privacy-conscious couple have handed over a trove of pictures and video from their relationship, including the moment Harry proposed in 2017 and filming himself in the VIP lounge at Heathrow as he emigrated in March 2020.

The first three episodes contain a series of barbs that will upset his father King Charles III, including Harry’s claim that there is a ‘huge level of unconscious bias’ in the Royal Family – with reference to Princess Michael of Kent wearing an offensive Blackamoor-style brooch in front of his wife at Buckingham Palace.

There is also a suggestion that the UK is racist and more obsessed with race than the US, with Meghan declaring that she ‘wasn’t really treated like a black woman’ until she came to Britain.

The show also brands the Queen’s much-loved Commonwealth ‘Empire 2.0’, while other claims are made that ‘nothing has changed’ from the UK’s colonial past, and Brexit supporters are accused of being racist and having ‘horrible views’.

The comments have been described as ‘deeply offensive’ by some viewers. 

Harry said: ‘In this family sometimes your part of the problem rather than part of the solution. And there is a huge level of unconscious bias. The thing with unconscious bias is actually no one’s fault.’

Meghan added: ‘Obviously now everyone is aware of my race because they made it such an issue when I went to the UK.

‘Before then, I wasn’t really treated like a black woman.’
