The director of the Harry & Meghan docuseries, Liz Garbus, has firmly stood by a claim made in the Netflix show and has accused Buckingham Palace of attempting to undermine the credibility of the series.
In the series, an on-screen statement is shown claiming that “Members of the Royal Family declined to comment on the content within this series”. However, a senior royal source later denied this claim and stated that neither Buckingham Palace nor any members of the royal family had been approached about the series.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Liz Garbus responded to this denial, calling it an example of the “alleged palace mind games” that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had previously described in the show. Garbus stated, “For instance, Buckingham Palace said that we didn’t reach out for comment [on the docuseries] when we did.
They did that to discredit us and by discrediting us, they can discredit the content of the show. It was as if we were living through some of those moments that were a little bit like Alice Through the Looking Glass.”
Garbus went on to say that the team behind the docuseries had followed all standard protocols for reaching out for comment, including sending multiple requests for comment to Buckingham Palace and members of the Royal Family.
She argues that the palace’s denial is an attempt to undermine the credibility of the series, and the information it presents. Garbus believes that by discrediting the series, the palace is attempting to discredit the content of the show and the experiences shared by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
