Barely a day has passed since the documentary series Harry and Meghan saw the light and the controversy has not taken long to jump. Despite the fact that, as it usually does, the Crown was expected to remain in the background, the truth is that this has not been the case. “Members of the Royal Family have declined to comment on the content of this series”it is about the warning that can be seen at the beginning of the first episode, which has led Palacio to pronounce on it.
Sources close to Buckingham have assured that no member of British royalty has been contacted by Netflix to give their version of the events narrated by the son of Diana of Wales and his wife. A statement that the platform itself has been in charge of denying, assuring that they were offered to participate in the series through their communication teams. Behind this, Kensington Palace has rectified, acknowledging having received an email from a production company, although not from the official platform, for which they decided to contact them to verify its authenticity without receiving any response. In addition, the Palace source wanted to make it clear that, for the moment, neither Carlos III nor Prince William will make statements about the history of the Dukes of Sussex.
And so it has been. The new King has continued with the commitments marked on his official agenda while his son’s docuseries saw the light. The sovereign has traveled to central London to visit King’s House, a space that serves as a place of worship and support for people in the local area. In this first appointment of the day, it was the spectators who were interested in his reaction, receiving silence as an answer. After this, Carlos III has traveled to the Advent service officiated in the Church of the Christian Fraternity of Ethiopia, in which a journalist has assaulted him asking him about his son’s statements. The monarch has decided to ignore the communicator and has continued to greet the crowd, yes, without losing his smile.
King Charles appeared to avoid any questions on Harry and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries while on a visit to north London.

Who did want to speak out on the matter was Sabine Getty, who has used her Instagram account to defend the Prince of Wales and charge against Enrique’s truth: “Enrique telling us over and over again that he is royalty and that his mother is Princess Diana. She’s okay, but she’s also Guillermo’s mother, what happens is that he doesn’t trade under his name for money like he does. In addition, she has asked that Meghan Markle stop being compared to “the people’s princess”: “Diana was concerned about others, Meghan only herself”.
Likewise, he has criticized how the actress has touched on the subject of racism, describing her documentary as a way of taking advantage of it: “Michelle, whom I deeply admire, understood very well the opportunity that the platform gave her. And God knows she stood up to racism, she never played the victim. She used her position to help people and change things from within.”
