It’s a slap in the face. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen provocative timing for their Netflix documentary trailer. Brother Prince William and his wife were surprised in Boston. Princess Kate is particularly hard hit at the moment.

London – Heir to the throne Prince William (40) and his wife Princess Kate (40) were surprised by the appearance of Meghan Markle’s (41) and Prince Harry’s (38) trailer in Boston. With all cameras focused on the two Windsors traveling abroad, Meghan and Harry released the controversial Netflix trailer. Two streaming dates have been announced. The second comes just when Kate herself has an important commitment.

The timing couldn’t be worse for the Princess of Wales

Kate and William initially ignored the drama on their Boston visit, where they were greeted by a large crowd. However, an onlooker told the opposite The Sun: “They were all smiling – but you could tell Kate had a really steely look too.”

No wonder, especially for the Princess of Wales, both the release of the trailer and the actual streaming date of the second part of the documentary on December 15th are extremely inconvenient. Ingrid Seward (74), editor-in-chief of the magazine Majesty Calling the timing sneaky: “Releasing the trailer while William and Kate are in Boston looks like an ambush by Harry and Meghan.” She attests Meghan and Harry a knack for just such opportunities.

The timing is no coincidence

Meghan’s cheerleader Omid Scobie (41), the biography Finding Freedom wrote, taunted loudly on Twitter about the timing of the event. He wrote, “If tomorrow is the Super Bowl for Prince William, then here’s your halftime show.”

Meghan and Harry make life difficult for the senior royals

The 60-second commercial for the documentary series makes dubious suggestions that are primarily intended to drum up advertising for the streaming giant. Harry’s menacing words: “No one sees what goes on behind closed doors,” was followed by a storm of outrage from fans and experts alike. Because although the couple insists on their privacy by leaving the royal family, they feed the viewers with intimate scenes and the disclosure of royal insider knowledge.

To make matters worse, the second part of the documentary is released, the first trailer of which is already peppered with shenanigans debunked by experts when Kate goes about her royal duty. She is to moderate a celebratory event at Westminster Abbey. It is a tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II (96, † 2022). The very special concert is intended to honor Her Majesty’s values ​​and is scheduled to be broadcast on Christmas Eve. The Sussexes’ timing seems almost like mockery. Sources used:,
