Following the premiere of “Harry & Meghan,” the Netflix docuseries about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton is reportedly upset with him.”Kate feels hurt and betrayed that Harry would do this to her, too, especially as the pair used to be so close,” said an alleged close source to Us Weekly.According to the outlet, Prince William “isn’t planning to give his side of the story or openly retaliate” in response to the six-episode series. The insider continued, “He’s remaining dignified and is getting on with the job.”Last week, Page Six reported that neither Prince William nor Kate Middleton have watched “Harry & Meghan.”
“William and Kate’s aides have briefed them on the show, but don’t expect the couple to sit down in their cottage with a bowl of popcorn to tune in themselves,” the insider said.
What did Harry reveal to upset Kate?Throughout the Liz Garbus-directed movie, Harry and Markle discussed the Prince and Princess of Wales numerous times.Harry said that his departure from England caused a “wedge” between him and his older brother in addition to the former military pilot accusing his older brother of breaking an alleged “agreement” to not release information about one another to the media.A 2020 article about the siblings’ conflict was also brought up by Harry, who claimed he had not consented to a joint statement “squashing the story about [William] bullying” him and Markle out of the family.
“No one had asked me permission to put my name to a statement like that,” claims Harry in the docuseries.In the series, Markle has consistently refrained from criticizing her brother-in-law, but she was extremely vocal about her sentiments when the future king’s communications secretary provided an urgent witness testimony in her 2021 lawsuit against the publication of a private letter to her father.”It’s your brother,” the Duchess of Sussex told Harry. “I’m not going to say anything about your brother, but it’s so obvious [he authorized the statement].”In January 2020, Harry and Markle took a step back from their responsibilities as senior members of the royal family, and in February 2021, they resigned formally.
