Harry blasts Royal Family for not offering Meghan protection
The Royal Family was called out in episode two after the Duke of Sussex claimed his family felt Meghan did not need protecting.
Racism in the press during the early stages of the couple’s relationship came into the spotlight as Harry opened up about a conversation he had with his family.
He said: “The direction of the palace was ‘don’t say anything’, but for what we were trying to understand is, as far as a lot of the family were concerned, everything she was being put through, they had been put through as well.”
He added: “Some of the members of the family were like ‘Well my wife had to go through that, so why should your girlfriend be treated any differently?
“‘Why should you get special treatment? Why should she be protected?’
“I said the difference here is the race element.”
Harry warned Meghan ‘you can’t talk’ to press when they first met
Prince Harry and Meghan opened up about how Harry warned his new love interest she could not speak to the press.
She said: “I remember going to the flower shop, going to get flowers and coming out of the flower shop…
“There must’ve been nine or 10 paps standing in the middle of the street and they’re all sort of blocking the car.
“(They’re) saying, ‘Hey, how are you doing, Meghan?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, thanks. Stay warm, guys.’
“And I remember H the next day saying you can’t talk to them.”
Harry warned Meghan that the media was suggesting she “loved” the attention from the cameras.
Kate and William’s awkward first meeting with Meghan
The Duchess of Sussex opened up about the first time she met the Prince and Princess of Wales.
She explained: “Even when Will and Kate came over and I had met her for the first time… They came for dinner.
“I remember I was in ripped jeans and I was barefoot. I was a hugger, always being a hugger I didn’t realize that that is really jarring for a lot of Brits.
“I guess I started to understand very quickly that the formality on the outside, carried through on the inside.”
She also admitted she “didn’t know what she was doing” when she first met The Queen.
