Liz Garbus, the director of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s latest Netflix series ‘Harry & Meghan’, has slammed Buckingham Palace officials for trying to ‘discredit’ the series.
The 6-part docuseries saw the Duke and Duchess of Sussex divulge what life was like before, during and after living in the palace. He also provided insight into the circumstances that led the couple to walk away from the British Royal Family in 2020.
Garbus, who helmed the entire series, says each episode gives audiences insight into the “alleged palace mind games” that Harry and Meghan were forced to endure at the hands of fellow royals.
“For example, Buckingham Palace said we didn’t ask for comment. [on the docuseries] when we did,” Garbus told Vanity Fair. “They did this to discredit us…and by discrediting us, they can discredit the content of the show.”
“We had some of those moments that were a bit like ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass,'” the Oscar-nominated director added.
At the start of the docuseries, a message was sent to viewers that read, “Members of the Royal Family have declined to comment on the content of this series.”
To counter this claim, a source told Page Six that neither Buckingham Palace, which represents King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla, nor Kensington Palace, which represents Prince William and Kate Middleton, nor any member of the family have not been approached for comment.
The insider claimed there would be “no comment” on “any aspect” of the docuseries anyway, adding, “I know the filmmakers have asked for comment.”
The Post has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
The exiled royals have dropped a number of bombshells in the docuseries – released just a month before Harry’s tell-all memoir ‘Spare’.
The six-part “explosive” series saw the couple speak out about the alleged racism Meghan faced, coupled with the difficult decision to walk away from the monarchy.
The couple also go into detail about the abuse they claim to have suffered from the royal family, including their strained relationship with Prince William and King Charles III and Meghan’s own mental health issues, as well as her devastating miscarriage.
In addition to their Netflix deal, which Forbes said was worth $100m, Harry and Meghan also signed a $25m deal with Spotify – to produce content like Meghan’s ‘Archetypes’ podcast – sparking backlash negative from musicians who only get pennies per stream from the audio-based site.
