Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined hands with Netflix in a multi-million dollar deal where they would explain their royal experience in detail. Where the couple candidly talked about the differences between Meghan Markle and the Royal family and also their supposed unfair treatment of her. Given its tendency to drop two bombshells every fifteen minutes, the Harry & Meghan Netflix docuseries seemed like an extension of the Oprah interview.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, after exiting as senior Royal members, have seemingly broken from the shackles that restricted what can and cannot come out of their mouths. Apart from disposing of their duties as senior royals, another thing that the couple left behind was a stiff upper lip. A character Markle failed to adapt, as she admits in an interview long before the Megxit. As people bash the couple for openly telling their story now, the interview is a stark reminder of how everyone turned a blind eye when Meghan Markle hinted at the media and the palace’s mistreatment towards her.
Meghan Markle hinted at mistreatment long before Megxit
Long before releasing a tell-all docuseries, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry released one while still loosely holding onto the stiff British upper lip. Their 2019 documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, broadcasted on ITV, entailed a candid interview of the Duchess of Sussex with Tom Bradby. Markle, a newly turned mother to Archie, then spoke about the brutality of the tabloids towards her.
#HarryAndMeghan an African Journey was brilliantly human, honest, raw & open. H&M are so genuinely hands-on, involved, invested, relatable. Their causes aren’t mere photo-ops. And that’s why haters & trolls are so unhinged. And still they rise! #MeghanMarkle #ABCNEWS

And when the interviewer countered her with the media scrutiny being part and parcel of life as a Royal, the actress turned Duchess gave a very wise answer. “I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair, and that’s the part that’s really hard to reconcile,” Markle said, as reported by Harper’s Bazaar.

The Duchess of Sussex further added, “You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy. I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip. I tried, I really tried. But I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging.”
Women In Journalism is revolted by the misogynistic & bullying comments made by Jeremy Clarkson about the Duchess of Sussex. The brutal, graphic & derogatory language used was entirely unacceptable.

While the Megxit was not anywhere in the picture then, the statements given by Markle help one understand why the couple took the big step.

Since Meghan is biracial, she must be ashamed of it,or why did she get her a white nose job? Talk about racism 😒 😳

Megan is so boring saying same thing over and over while being nasty to the working royal who work very hard for their country always with a smile and listens to everyone there not for the publicity but to learn what they can do to make the time better for them
