Netflix released Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming documentary series teaser trailer last week, with the full trailer released on Monday. The couple signed the multi-million dollar with the streaming service after stepping away from their lives as senior working royals and moving to the US. Since the release of the trailer, experts have called the couple out for “fakery” after spotting what they believe to be fibs in clips and photos used in the one-minute trailer. The experts spotted that at least four images that are promoting the series are not what they seem. 

KATIE PRICE PAPARAZZI PICTURE

A clip used in the second, and full, trailer for Harry and Meghan’s docuseries appars to illustrate paparazzi hounding the couple.

However, it has emerged that the photograph used was nothing to do with the Sussexes and the person being photographed was Katie Price. 

In one scene, Harry tells how he feared Meghan, 41, was being treated like his late mother, Princess Diana.

He adds: “I was terrified. I didn’t want history to repeat itself.” As Harry speaks, a clip of camera crews are seen racing to an unseen person, who happened to be former model Katie Price when she was leaving Crawley magistrates’ court last December.

PRE-AGREED PHOTOGRAPHER

The trailer also gives the impression a lone photographer covertly snapped the family from a birds eye view angle.

However, witnesses revealed that the photographer had been granted official access in advance.

Royal expert Robert Jobson tweeted that the use of this clip was “complete travesty” and that the Sussexes “agreed to the position”.

NO-SHOW SUSSEXES

In a third scene, press are seen crowded round a limo before the trailer cuts to tearful Meghan.

Royal experts worked out that Meghan was not in the vehicle and the passenger was, in fact, Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, when he was heading to prison in New York in 2019.

The footage was actually taken on May 6, 2019, the same day the couple’s son Archie, now three, was born.

Lastly, a clip was used in the teaser trailer, which was released last week, which apparently showed the couple being hounded by the paparazzi.

The clip emerged from 2011 – five years before the couple met.

The late Queen’s former press secretary Dickie Arbiter called the series “one long whinge” adding that he believes that Prince William and Kate will be saying “oh God, here we go again”.

DON’T MISS

Another photograph was used of Harry shielding his face. This was an edited photograph from 2007, which originally featured his ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy.

Netflix revealed, on Monday, that the series will be released in two parts, Volume I and Volume II.

The first part, or three of the six episodes, will be released on December 8 and the second part, the final three episodes, will be aired on December 15.

Speaking recently on GB News, royal expert Angela Levin called the trailer “staged and phoney”, particularly after a photograph of Meghan crying with her head in her hands was used.
