In the wee hours of the morning, Netflix dropped the first episodes of the highly-anticipated Harry & Meghan docuseries. Some said that their show is an attack on The Royal Establishment; others said it was savage, while some remarked that it was justice well served. While the British Royal Family braced for its impact, was it as damaging as they feared?
Billed as a documentary-style series that will share their love story and the challenges they faced behind closed doors to create the life they wanted for themselves, the first set of episodes delivered on the love story front, outlining how the two first met and the details of their first date. And, it featured some very surprising guests.
Even in its first few hours, their Netflix series became a trending topic on Twitter with very vocal supporters of the pair, plus those who are not fans at all. We’ve gathered some of the most pointed opinions from Twitter about Harry & Meghan’s docuseries premiere.
Harry & Meghan’s ‘Spokesperson’ Speaks
Omid Scobie, a global Royals commentator and writer and often dubbed the Sussex’s unofficial spokesperson said:
Eps 1-3? No “trashing”, no bombshells, just their experiences (many already well documented) in their words. All pretty calm and collected.— Omid Scobie (@scobie) December 8, 2022
Great commentary about race and colonialism, and the section connecting Brexit to the couple’s story would have made a great doc in itself.
Charles Couldn’t Do It, But Harry Did
Prince Harry is literally doing for Meghan what Charles DIDN’T do for Princess Diana, all of which ultimately led to her early death. Personally, I think Diana’s cheering H and M all the way. As she should. Your revisionism is wild. https://t.co/Qn0wksIHho— Independent Thinker (@ThinkIndep) December 3, 2022
Others Think It Is a Total Cringe Fest
This is so cringe from beginning to end. You can see that everything is based around jealousy of William and Catherine. Oh and the curtesy thing is clearly a lie as displayed on Harry’s face. #HarryandMeghanNetflix #MeghanMarkIeisaLiar— Prince & Princess of Wales (@CelticTribesman) December 8, 2022
Are They Talking Out of Both Sides of Their Mouth?
‘It’s amazing what people will do when they’re offered a huge amount of money – hand over photographs to create a story’ – Prince Harry, who was paid £90 million by Netflix to hand over photos & create a story. This is so funny. #HarryandMeghanNetflix— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 8, 2022
Their Complaints Seem Trivial While So Many Are Struggling
They may be genuine and want to control their message. However, it’s bad timing to release this. So many people can’t afford power or food, so the ‘woe is me’ narrative of the millionaires from their compound in California is not going to play well #HarryandMeghanNetflix— Katie (@Katieannmanc) December 8, 2022
It’s a Boring Show

Surprise Guests Were The Chef’s Kiss
Samantha Markle’s daughter Ashleigh being in this third episode of the documentary is perfection.— Anne Boleyn (“Brazen Hussy”) (@TudorChick1501) December 8, 2022
It’s Painfully Obvious That It Is Staged
These two make the Kardashians look like good actors! So staged it’s unreal! #HarryandMeghanNetflix— lisa kemp (@lisakemp48) December 8, 2022
The Catherine Connection
All Harry said was that some men in his family marry women they can mould ( empty vessels) instead of women they love and are destined to be with……..— Alexis( sowing discord in the west) (@ArchewellBaby) December 8, 2022
And royalists immediate said he’s talking about Kate Middleton.
Is that what y’all think she is?#HarryandMeghanNetflix pic.twitter.com/KyseDFYKph
