Harry and Meghan ‘show no signs of surrender’ in new Netflix episodes, say critics

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex “show no signs of surrender” in the latest and final episodes released of their Netflix documentary series, according to TV critics.

The fourth, fifth and sixth instalments of the explosive series dropped on the streaming platform on Thursday 15 December, following the first three episodes, which arrived last week.

Major US media outlets have said of the final three episodes of the tell-all documentary that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not “pull their punches” in these instalments, which they described as “more forceful”.

The final three episodes saw Harry, 38, make bombshell claims against his brother, the Prince of Wales.

The Duke said that following a tense Sandringham summit, Kensington Palace “lied to protect my brother” by releasing a joint statement in both their names without his permission.

An article published by The Hollywood Reporter read: “[Harry and Meghan] show no signs of surrender as episodes four through six plunge the Firm deeper into repetitional bedlam, the current heir to the throne at its centre.”

Though these last few episodes were considered revelatory, the Hollywood Reporter noted that viewers had felt “underwhelmed” and “perhaps even disappointed at a substantial lack of explosive content following the first three instalments”.

The gloves were “well and truly off for the Sussexes”, CNN correspondents Max Foster and Lauren Said-Moorhouse said, as they added that the Royal Family needed to respond to the documentary series in order to avoid it becoming “part of the national memory”.

The rift between Harry and his brother William appeared to be highlighted in the last three episodes, leaving doubt among some critics as to whether the siblings would be able to overcome their issues with each other.

Helen Lewis of The Atlantic was one of those left uncertain as to whether the brothers’ relationship could ever be repaired, and described the last instalments as “more tragic than the first three”.

“Harry & Meghan is a perfect blend of love story and quest for vengeance, and moment-to-moment it is extremely compelling,” she wrote.

“But its lacunae mean that if you know anything about the royal soap opera, then from the minute you stop watching, awkward questions begin to bubble into your mind.

“The relentlessly one-sided narrative makes you feel manipulated.”
