Writing in her column on the New Zealand Herald website, writer and royal commentator Daniela Elser encouraged Harry and Meghan to admit their mistakes, claiming that it seems the couple and Netlfix are expecting us, as the viewers, to “swallow the gospel”.
“Maybe they will tell a moving and compelling story.”
However, she added that, as oppose to this, “maybe millions [could] dip into the show for one episode only and give up because who wants to watch two people so hooked on their own hurts”.
She added that, according to Harry’s comments in the trailer, the series is offering us “the full truth”.
The first half of Meghan and Harry’s docu-series is out on Thursday
Harry and Meghan’s documentary will air on Netflix
Ms Elser added that, according to the trailer, “everyone [is to blame] but Harry and Meghan”.
Despite having to wait until the release of the first half on December 8, we will “have to wait” in order to “find out précised [what] is revealed”, it is clear that “this is all someone else’s fault”.
It is almost three years since Meghan and Harry decided to step back as senior working royals but “absolutely nothing would appear to have changed”.
Ms Elser asks when will Harry and Meghan “ever take any smidgen of responsibility for their role in this Greek tragedy”, adding, “why can’t they ever admit that they might have made a mistake”.
The docu-series will be released in two parts, three episodes each.
Netflix confirmed on Monday that Volume I will be released on December 8, and Volume II will be released one week later, on December 15.
It was earlier reported that the first three episodes will cover allegations that the members of the royal household briefed against them to the media, as well as the couple’s love story.
The first three episodes will also explore the couple’s difficult relationship with the media and claims that the Duchess was a victim of racism, as well as suggestions that Meghan and Harry were not supported by the Palace.
The couple arrived in the Big Apple for the Ripple of Hope Awards, a gala hosted by the Robert F Kennedy Human Rights organisation.
Harry and Meghan were presented with an award for opposing “structural racism” within the Royal Family.
